Please continue to pray for Canadians impacted by the recent mass murder in Nova Scotia, where 22 people lost their lives. Pray especially for strength and comfort for the communities where the violence occurred and for the families and friends who lost loved ones. Pray for the Maritime District and Nova Scotia churches, that they will be able to reach out effectively, and that God will grant them divine insight on the needs of each person, family, business and community they serve. Pray also for opportunities for the gospel to spread, so that many people will find hope and comfort in Christ. Click here for a word from Maritime District Superintendent Kevin Johnson.

Pray for God’s continual intervention in the COVID-19 crisis, which has infected more than 2,954,000, and killed over 202,000 people around the world.1 Pray for God’s healing touch upon those infected, and comfort for those whose loved ones have passed away. Continue to pray for protection, strength and encouragement for frontline and essential workers. May the Lord provide wisdom for leaders worldwide as some countries are beginning to restart their economies, and/or unveil plans for the best way to do so. Pray also that God will continue to protect and strengthen people in developing nations who are already malnourished and vulnerable to this virus, allowing aid to get to where it is needed most.

Hector & Ruth Aragon
May God provide Hector and Ruth with wisdom and strength as they share the good news in Guatemala. Pray that God will guide them as they train pastors and other leaders with a discipleship program. Pray for the salvation of families involved in the ERDO ChildCARE Plus program. Pray also for Hector and Ruth as they translate, print and promote a Sunday school certificate program. Hector and Ruth are currently in Canada for the birth of a grandchild; returning to Guatemala when COVID-19 travel restrictions are lifted.
