Diocesan Cycle of Prayer
Prayer is an important part of the Christian life and in our prayers we bring to God our adoration of God, our thanksgiving for God’s provision as well as our prayers for ourselves and our neighbour. We bring to God our successes and our struggles, our hopes, our dreams, our failures and our concerns. You are invited to join with us in daily prayer.
The Diocesan Cycle of Prayer is offered as a resource to support your prayers as it includes times for prayer for Anglican Dioceses across Australia and the Ministry Units and ministries of North Queensland.
Today's daily prayer can be accessed on our home page Cycle of Prayer tab.

This little booklet is unique for it contents within its 32 pages:
- The basic documents of the Christian faith,
- A course for older children.
- A course of instruction for little children.
- First prayers to be learned.
When first published in 1917, the Bush Brothers of those days hoped that it might be a handbook for those who teach the Church Catechism to children with very limited background of religious education.
For almost 40 years, it has been tried and tested in Bush Schools, Sunday Schools and on Station Homesteads where parents fulfill their duty of teaching their children. During this period, it has amply fulfilled the prayers and hopes of those responsible for its production.
In most State Schools in North Queensland, the children have learned the “Little Catechism” which so simply teaches them the basic facts of the faith. The larger Catechism for older children is based upon a “Catechism of Faith and Practise” authorised in 1904, for use in the Diocese of Bloomfontein.
This tenth impression now goes forward in the hope that the North Queensland Catechism will continue to be used of God throughout the Australian Commonwealth.
