Prayer Vigil Parliament Grounds Wellington 6:45pm 27th March 2013It is an important week for marriage. The Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill is at Committee stage, and tomorrow night will be discussed in Parliament.

The media have, over the last weeks, begun to call the Bill the “Marriage Equality Bill”.  It is also referred to as the “same-sex marriage Bill” or “Gay Marriage Bill”.  But let’s call it what it is, a Bill to redefine marriage.  At least Louisa Wall has been honest in the title she has given the legislation.  Ultimately, this Bill is about redefining family to the point that traditional marriage and family (which has been under attack for many decades) can not exist in New Zealand without great persecution.

When marriage and family is attacked, the Holy Trinity is attacked.  When we attack God, we call upon ourselves His wrath.

Family Life International NZ is urging all people of good will to join in the Prayer Vigil for Marriage at Parliament Grounds in Wellington tomorrow evening (Wednesday 27th March 2013), 6:45pm to 8:45pm.  If you are unable to attend, please join us in prayer from where ever you are.  We can no longer afford to be complacent.  This is a spiritual battle.  We must do all we can to stop this Bill from becoming law in our land.

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

  1. Jesus preached tolerance. Not evident in this article. Nothing in New Zealand’s law should give greater rights to any group of people for any reason. If churches wish to do so, that is outside the law.
