Wesley Leake from the Prayer Day Team said, "We have a vision for Australia where our children can play safely in the streets...We believe the Judeo-Christian ethics and values that our nation is built upon are the source of Australia's national prosperity and we want to preserve them for future generations."

Warwick Marsh from the Prayer Day Team said, "Australia's Constitution, written in 1901 says, 'Humbly relying on the blessings of almighty God.' Sadly we have strayed far from our Judeo-Christian foundations."

Dr Graham McLennan, head of the National Alliance of Christian Leaders and part of the Prayer Day Team said, "We have been inspired by President Abraham Lincoln in the midst of the chaos of the Civil War called for a National Day of Humiliation, Prayer and Fasting on the 30 March 1863. His proclamation read, 'And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow... yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon... 'It behooves us then, to humble ourselves... to confess our national sins, and to pray for... forgiveness.'

"We are also thrilled to announce there will be a significant contribution of Australia's First Nation Peoples at the National Day of Prayer & Fasting. This year's 40 Days of Prayer & Fasting, 10 February - 20 March 2016, is being led by Australia's First Nation People. Each day a devotion and a story will be shared on YouTube from an Indigenous Christian leader. Australia's Aboriginal people will be sharing their love for Jesus and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. The theme scripture is from Hebrews 12:2, "Looking unto JESUS, the author and the finisher of our faith."
