The Salvation Army in South-West Sydney organised to get permission from the Ingleburn Alive festival to hold a prayer tent. This involved Salvos from Macquarie Fields, Fairfield and Liverpool, as well as prayer warriors and evangelists from corps across the region.


It was a wonderful day where people saw the sign ‘Free Prayer’ and were happy to be prayed for. All we had to ask was, “May I pray for you?”

We gave out 144 bottles of water from a local company called Living Water, as well as free sunscreen, lollies and Bible verses. We prayed for 41 people.

We saw Jesus restore hearing and heal a back. We prayed against a curse, we prayed for protection from manifestations, and for someone with family issues. Six people received Jesus.

We also prayed for four Muslim women, women in Afghanistan, a lady’s mother, and two people struggling to get pregnant. We prayed for a man and woman with foot issues, and both were healed.

We prayed for a lady struggling with her faith over her child’s death.

We prayed for the business next to us to prosper, and he had never had so many sales. He also shared about a man on his deathbed who we prayed for.

A lady asked us to pray that her two sons would receive Jesus. Two children came with their parents asking for prayer, and another lady asked for prayer for a brain bleed.

One fellow asked for prayer for his uncertain future, and Jesus healed another lady’s knee.

Finally, a man who was busy all day and was exhausted asked us to pray for energy for him.

We got the names of three people who indicated they were interested in coming to a community table. We praise God for the connections we made and the privilege it was to partner with the Holy Spirit and pray with people. We are already planning our next event.
