Praise God for the opportunity for the Bible Reading Marathon at Federal Mall outside New Parliament House location in Canberra, ACT for a Citywide Christian Multicultural Initiative.

Christians will pray blessings for the city and nation including Bible Reading  for 79 hours on Thursday 9 February from 7am to Thursday 12 February  finishing at 3pm 2023, continuously day and night in front of New Parliament House to the side on the grass near the Ceremonial Stone, Please  pray for this final land permission to be granted as soon as possible.

The plan is for there to be 26 site Captains (Watchmen) oversighting 3 hour time blocks.  We ask each Watchman leader to gather between 4-12 Christians to read the Bible for 15 minutes each in their time blocks, and also to consider doing another 3 hour time block if possible on a different day and time.

To find out more why not watch the video about the Bible Reading Marathon

In 2023, there will be just one location in Canberra outside Federal Parliament House where the bible will be Read.

This will be a low key event with no amplification. Believers who have registered will be coming and going, arriving 15 minutes before their time slot. It is expected that there would be approximately between 4- 8 people or less at any time.  At each site there will be a portable gazebo/ sun shade shelter 3m by 3m, a folding table and 4 folding chairs. People will be bringing their own water bottles and removing any personal rubbish etc. NB This is not part of the Multicultural Festival Organisation or foot print. but it is a Christian multicultural cross denominational response to bless our city and nation through the unity of the  Holy Spirit, as we read God’s living Word cover to cover one believer after another, reading from one Bible; NKJV large print version. 

Bible Breakthrough

 79 hour Bible Reading Marathon prior to the National Day of Prayer & Fasting

Thursday 9 February – Sunday 12 February 2023 The Bible Breakthrough is a continuous 79 hour Bible Reading Marathon that has been organized outside Australian Parliaments in the State Capitals of Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and including Parliament House in Canberra. In future years it is envisioned that this will take place where possible in all State Capitals and outside public buildings and council chambers in cities and regional towns. There are 9 Parliamentary Offices and 564 Councils’ in Australia. It takes 79 hours and 40 minutes to read the bible through out loud. The vision of the Bible Breakthrough is to find 288 Christians in each location who will read the scriptures for 15 Minute slot during the 78 hour period. It takes just under 78 hours to read the Bible through from beginning to the end.

The Bible Breakthrough – Bible Reading Marathon’s goal is to follow the words of Paul the Apostle who encouraged the believers in 1Timothy 4:13 to “devote themselves to the public reading of scripture.” The word of God is powerful and the reading of scriptures in strategic public places is a form of prayerful declaration that Australia will find its DESTINY in Christ the Living Word. John 1:1

The 79 hour Bible Marathon will finish at 3pm on Sunday 12 February 2023 which is during the Federal Parliament’s sitting in 2023. 

The Bible Reading Marathon is a Pre-Event before Australia’s National Day of Prayer and Fasting taking place on 27th May 2023 – for more information please see

 Through the Bible Breakthrough – Bible Reading Marathon, it is hoped that people will be interested to attend a church near them to hear more about the Good News of God’s love through Jesus Christ, which is the central message of the Scriptures. Our prayer is that through the Bible Breakthrough – Bible Reading Marathon many people will find their DESTINY in Christ the Living Word and that Christians will discover again the power of the Bible.
