This July we’re praying specifically for Canada. As we pray, we believe that together we will see God’s purposes accomplished in our nation and more people come to a vibrant faith in Christ. Along with our monthly prayer focus, visit www.everydayfaith.ca for encouragement in the disciplines of Bible reading, prayer, generosity and sharing our faith in word and deed. Thank you for praying.
July 2017 (Missional Vitality)For God’s glory to be revealed in our nation
- In celebrating our 150th birthday as a nation, that we would be thankful and appreciative of God’s kindness and that many more of our citizens’ hearts will turn to Him in the months and years ahead.
- That God will continue to bless Canada with provision, protection and direction.
- For wisdom, understanding, integrity and strength for our government leaders and judges at all levels—federal, provincial, and municipal.
- That God will strengthen the faith of Christ-followers throughout Canada, and grant them boldness to share the gospel in word and deed wherever He has placed them.
- That evangelical individuals and organizations will find favour as they seek opportunities to be godly influences in cities and communities across Canada.
PASSAGES TO PONDER:
1 Chronicles 16:34
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
1 Timothy 2:1-3
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior…
How beautiful on the mountains
are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace,
who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation,
who say to Zion,
“Your God reigns!”
I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.
