UNITED STATES

A man shot and killed 22 people and injured 24 others at a shopping complex in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday (August 3). Then early on Sunday (August 4), another man shot and killed nine people and injured more than 27 others in a nightclub district in Dayton, Ohio. Pray for physical and emotional healing for the people who survived the rampages and for the families and friends of those killed or seriously injured. Pray that God will grant comfort and peace to everyone impacted. Pray also for opportunities for the gospel to spread, so that many people will find hope in Christ in the aftermath of these tragedies.

 

PENTECOSTAL WORLD CONFERENCE

Many people who are planning to attend the 25th Pentecostal World Conference, being held in Calgary, Alberta, from August 27 to 30, are being denied entry to Canada. Hundreds of Canadian visas are being denied to our international guests by Canadian Immigration offices around the world. Pray that God will remove barriers to the approval process so that the visas will ultimately be granted. Pray for the remaining arrangements to be made smoothly for those who receive delayed approvals.

 

MARITIME DISTRICT

Pray for the children who will be attending the Kids Camp at Camp Evangeline in Debert, Nova Scotia, from August 5 to 8. May they have powerful encounters with God, engage in passionate worship, and experience life-changing teaching sessions. Pray that God will accomplish His desire in their hearts during this event. Pray that many seeds will be planted and that their lives and their families’ lives will be impacted for eternity. Pray also for the speaker and music artists as they minister.

 

QUEBEC DISTRICT

Pray for the youth who will be attending “Le Spot Camp” at le Camp de l’Arche in Saint-Elzéar de Beauce, Quebec, from August 9 to 12. May those attending have opportunities to connect with one another, build relationships, and experience life-changing moments with Jesus Christ. May they also learn about God’s love for them and how to deepen their faith throughout the weekend.
