Today we are praying for all children in Alberta and the Northwest Territories, and specifically for aboriginal children in this part of our nation.

  • The largest numbers of Aboriginal people lived in Ontario and the western provinces (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia). Aboriginal people made up the largest shares of the population of Nunavut and the Northwest Territories.
  • Aboriginal children aged 14 and under made up 28.0% of the total Aboriginal population and 7.0% of all children in Canada. Non-Aboriginal children aged 14 and under represented 16.5% of the total non-Aboriginal population.(www12.statcan.gc.ca)

We also pray for our leadership and students at Vanguard College in Edmonton who are part of the Children and Family Ministries program.  May God provide the wisdom needed by today’s leaders to reach and disciple a young generation, so that our children grow up to be Bible-based, Spirit-filled followers of Jesus.  http://www.vanguardcollege.com/programs-courses/cfm/

 

My prayer for the children of Alberta and Northwest Territories is that they will know the heart of Father God, to walk in obedience to his son, Jesus Christ and in the power of the Holy Spirit.  I pray they will have a solid biblical foundation of the faith which will provide a foundation of health and vitality in the body of Christ so that will go reach a lost and dying world about his great love and salvation.  God is doing a great work in Alberta and NWT in the lives of children and I am so excited to see what He is about to do!!   LeAnn Woelk, Children's Ministries Director, PAOC AB/NWT District

    Daily Prayer for April 17

     
    Lord, we ask You to help us as parents, as spiritual leaders and as those who care about the spiritual condition of the next generation.  May You, by Your Holy Spirit, prompt us to engage in intentional and meaningful conversations with today’s younger generation, pointing them to a faith in You that they can grab on to. 

    Help us to set an example of daily going to Your Word for answers to our situations, and there finding comfort, peace and direction for our lives.  Help us to pass Your Word along to our children and teenagers, unpacking it with them in a way in which they understand.  May our passion for Your Word be contagious, and may Your Spirit draw them individually to crave the Truth of the Scriptures.  Speak to them through each verse, drawing them deeper and deeper not only in their reading but also in study, so they can show themselves approved in Your sight.  Amen.

     

    Praying the Word: 

    Lord, help me to study so that I may be the kind of person You would approve of.  Help me to give myself wholly to You.  Help me to do good work for You, the kind of work where I do not have to be ashamed in any way.  Help me to understand your Word and live it out in a way that is right, good and pleasing to You.  Amen.

    Prayer based on 2 Timothy 2:15:  Study to show yourself approved by God, a workman who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  [Modern English Version]

    Do the best you can to be the kind of person that God will approve, and give yourself to him. Be a worker who is not ashamed of his work—a worker who uses the true teaching in the right way. [International Children’s Bible] 


     

    Daily Prayer for April 18

     
    Father, we need your help as we seek to raise a generation who will not fall away from faith as they grow and mature and face the challenges of life ahead of them.  As parents and leaders, may we always be aware of our own lives and what we are modelling for those who are coming behind us.  Keep us pure in heart.  Keep us strong and steady in our service to you.  Help us to not find excuses from spending time in your Word and with your people.  May time spent in Your house and in service to You be a priority that we live with passion and purpose.  Keep us from being hypocritical, from judging others, from not putting others before ourselves.  When we fail in putting You first, help us not to stay in that place, but convict us by your gentle Holy Spirit so we would return to that place where we must be.  Help us never to lose our first love.  In Jesus’ name, and for the sake of a younger generation, we pray.  Amen.

     

    Take time also to pray the Word of God.  The book of Matthew sets out for us The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-12). Each is two phrases that speak of a condition of the heart, and a result.  As a parent or a leader of children, youth or young adults, pray these beatitudes over them, and with them. The term beatitude, in its Latin form, means “happiness”.  These are the highest ideals of the teachings of Jesus on mercy, spirituality and compassion. Let’s believe for a generation whose lives exude happiness because of their relationship with Jesus Christ:

      

    Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.

    Blessed are those who mourn: for they will be comforted.

    Blessed are the meek: for they will inherit the earth.

    Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness: for they will be filled.

    Blessed are the merciful: for they will be shown mercy.

    Blessed are the pure in heart: for they will see God.

    Blessed are the peacemakers: for they will be called children of God.

    Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.



     

    Daily Prayer for April 19

     
    Lord, today we pray for our children. There are so many decisions they must make in life as they grow up and reach the end of their high school years.  We ask that you would direct them by your Holy Spirit as to what they should do, where they should continue their education, and what career path You would have them follow in.  May they know the prompting of your Spirit as they need to make key decisions that will impact and influence the rest of their lives.  Keep them close to you as they go off to further their educations.  We pray, as well, that You would call individuals to Your full-time service, and that they would consider pursuing a Bible College education to prepare them for what you have ahead.  We are needing young pastors, church plants, missionaries and those who will find themselves reaching Canadians in unique ministry and missional opportunities across our nation, and around the world. 

    Today we also pray for those who are Mission Canada workers on our college and university campuses across our nation.  You know that we are set a goal of having a presence on every campus in Canada.  We ask that you would continue to raise up workers who are called of You to impact these campus communities.  Give us favour with faculty and student unions.  May we see Your hand at work as we seek to impact a generation who desperately needs to know You and have a personal relationship with a living God.  We thank you for the favour we are already seeing and what You are doing in and through those who have already obediently responded to Your call on their lives.  Amen.

    Today we list up children in Ontario in prayer.  Join Cindy Rose, Children’s Specialist in the PAOC’s Western Ontario District as we pray specifically…

    • That children everywhere will hear about Jesus and His great love for them.  That they will come into relationship with Jesus at a young age, and stay firm in their faith for years to come.
    • That children who are hurting and feel alone will come in connection with other children who love Jesus, and with churches that care about children, finding hope, purpose, and acceptance in Jesus at a young age.
    • That churches will rise up as the Body of Christ and together, with all ages and generations, young and old, share and model the love of Jesus to the children they come in contact with.
    • That when kids hear the Word of God that it would ignite in their hearts and that they would desire more. Pray that children would become grounded in God’s Word; that His Word truly would be a lamp for their feet and a light for their path while they are at school amongst friends, and when facing challenging situations in life.

    As the Children’s Ministries Director for the PAOC District of Quebec, my prayer for children in Quebec is to see them connect with God, for them to see Jesus as a real hero who loves them, and that they would be filled by the Spirit as He teaches them about who they are as children of God. I also pray that our children would develop a strong love for the Word of God, not as any other book, but that they would understand and believe that every word in it comes from God Himself. I invite you today to join with us across the nation and around the world in praying for the children of Quebec.
