WORLDWIDE

Continue to pray for God’s intervention in the coronavirus health emergency which is impacting more people around the world. The virus has killed more than 3,000 people, and thousands of additional cases have been confirmed. Pray for healing for those who have been diagnosed with the virus, and for comfort for those mourning loved ones who could not be saved. Pray for peace for all of those impacted and for those concerned about becoming infected. Pray that God will grant wisdom to doctors and nurses on how to treat quarantined patients. Pray also for God to intervene so that new cases are severely limited.

 

EASTERN ONTARIO & NUNAVUT DISTRICT

Pray for the children and youth attending the Reach Leadership C.A.M.P. (Creative Arts Ministry Preparation) at The Embassy in Oshawa, Ontario, from March 6 to 7. May they be equipped and empowered as their personal spirituality and ministry leadership skills are developed and sharpened. May God use what they learn to help them grow and partner with Jesus to make an even greater kingdom impact in their church, communities, schools, and homes.

 

BRITISH COLUMBIA & YUKON DISTRICT

Pray for the church leaders, worship leaders, and musicians attending the Worship Central Conference at Westside Church in Vancouver, B.C., from March 6 to 7. May they be inspired, engaged and refreshed, and may God bless them with wisdom and help them to look at their ministries with a new perspective. Pray also that they will build deep connections with each other.

 

Ejay Tupe

CANADA

Pray for Ejay, a Mission Canada worker in downtown Toronto, Ontario, who intentionally engages those who need to see the love of the Father in tangible ways. He interacts, serves and shares every day, bringing hope through Christ to both the poor and the rich in ways each can understand and accept. Pray for favour as Ejay reaches the marginalized in society, seeing them set free from the cycles of poverty that bind and destroy. Pray against the increase of drugs, and the effect they have on our Canadian cities. Pray against escalating violence, and for the peace of Christ to reign throughout Canada’s cities. Pray also for an increase of the Christian witness in our urban centres.
