This year’s National Prayer Breakfast will involve the participation of two SCEA students as they pray for our nation, our leaders and the future of our country.
Upon invitation from Christian Schools Australia (CSA) Director of Public Policy, Mr Mark Spencer, students from selected SCEA schools (Claire S, Head Girl from Mundaring Christian College and Jordyn H, Head Boy from Southern Hills Christian College) were asked to pray specifically for Australia’s leaders at this time.
Claire is a graduating member of the ‘Class of 2021’ at Mundaring with a passion for art and a love of God’s creation. Her prayer was filmed in the agricultural surrounds of the Parkerville campus and gave an insight into her heart for the nation”
“I wanted to thank God for the wide-open spaces, the closeness of our families and beauty that we see every day in our lives. Also, I want us to see the world through God’s eyes.”
Jordyn has ambitions to study Medicine in 2022 following an excellent final year at Southern Hills Christian College:
“My prayer is about giving us the humility to recognise the authority vested in our national leaders and seeking the wisdom to raise respectful discussions. At the same time, I want the Lord to enable us to become leaders in our own lives, leading by example; building up strong connections with the people we encounter and lending a supporting hand to all those who need it.”
The National Prayer Breakfast will be live-streamed from Parliament House in Canberra on 8 November 2021 (early Monday morning in WA) and will include speeches from:
- The Honourable Scott Morrison MP, Prime Minister of Australia
- The Honourable Anthony Albanese MP, Leader of the Opposition
- Christian actress Karen Pang, and
- Keynote Speaker, Dr Jenny George (Chief Executive Officer, Converge International)

The live-stream link will then be sent to your email closer to the date.
Well done to our SCEA students who have had their prayers filmed in their school locations and submitted for distribution on Monday!
