On Sunday (February 16), gunmen killed 24 people and injured 18 in an attack on a church in a village in northern Burkina Faso. Pray for comfort and healing for the people who survived the rampage and for the families and friends of those killed or seriously injured. Pray for continued faith, strength and perseverance for those impacted, and for spiritual breakthrough in those regions where the gospel is suppressed and Christians persecuted.



Pray for the youth pastors attending Youth Pastor Connexus 2020 from February 21 to 22 in Peterborough, Ontario. May they be equipped and empowered as their leadership skills are developed and sharpened. Ask God to inspire and encourage them as they connect with one another and with Him. May God use what they learn to help them grow and partner with Jesus to make an even greater kingdom impact in the lives of youth.



Pray for the people attending the youth pastor retreat at Debert Hospitality Centre in Debert, Nova Scotia, from February 23 to 25. May they feel spiritually refreshed and ministered to through the encouraging time of connecting with one another, and receiving inspiration from God through what they learn from the speaker. May God bless them with wisdom and help them to look at their ministries with a fresh perspective. Pray also that the Holy Spirit will speak to them and give them a renewed vision on how to reach the youth in their areas for Christ.



Pray for the volunteers and pastors serving in children’s ministry who are participating in En Route, a training day on February 22 at Malvern Christian Assembly in Scarborough, Ontario. Pray that they will be encouraged and their abilities strengthened as they learn how to minister even better to children. May God use what they learn to expand their insight on their ministries. Pray also that they will build deep connections with each other.
