*The name of your weekly prayer update has been changed from “Missions Hotline” to “PAOC Prayer” to better differentiate between the weekly prayer emails generated by International Missions (found here) and the general PAOC weekly update. The PAOC Prayer update will continue to include PAOC-related, Canadian and additional prayer needs, including at least one entry for each of our workers in Canada or internationally.

Please pray for the people of Las Vegas, Nevada, after a man shot and killed 58 people and injured more than 500 at an outdoor concert on Sunday night (October 1). Pray for physical and emotional healing for all of the people who survived the rampage and for the families and friends of those killed or seriously injured. Pray also for opportunities for the gospel to spread, so that many people will find comfort and hope in Christ in the aftermath of this tragedy.
On Saturday (September 30), in Edmonton, a man drove a car into a police officer before exiting the vehicle and attacking him with a knife. Hours later, the same man then drove another vehicle into a crowd, striking four pedestrians. Pray that God will grant healing to those who were injured and comfort everyone impacted emotionally by these incidents. Pray that God will grant wisdom to the authorities in preventing similar future attacks. Pray also for more opportunities for the gospel to be shared and received throughout Edmonton and beyond.
Damon & Kafi Ealey
Damon and Kafi are working and ministering in Tokyo, Japan. Pray for Damon as he engages with students, and mentors both Japanese and foreign new believers. Pray that God would move in people's hearts as Damon connects with them through a weekly basketball outreach program that he runs in the community. Pray for perseverance and safety for Kafi, who has lengthy commutes to work, and pray that she would produce research that would open up doors for greater influence in the Japanese community. Pray also for the spiritual growth and development of their two sons, Asher and Zuriel, and that God will strengthen and encourage the entire family.
