BRITISH COLUMBIA & YUKON DISTRICT
Pray for the leaders serving in children and youth ministry who are attending the online Elevate Leadership Development Weekend that is being held from October 2 to 3. 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 also use what they learn to help them grow and partner with Jesus in seeing their kingdom impact multiplied in the lives of kids, youth, young adults and parents.
QUEBEC & ONTARIO
In Quebec, Montreal and Quebec City are under the highest COVID-19 alert level, bringing new restrictions that begin on Thursday (October 1), aimed at curbing the spread of the virus. Meanwhile, this past Sunday (September 27), Ontario hit a record high number of new confirmed cases. Pray that hospitalizations in these areas will not exceed capacity with the second wave, and for God to intervene so that new cases are severely limited. Continue to pray for healing for those who have been diagnosed with the virus, and comfort for those whose loved ones have passed away. Pray also for peace for all of those impacted and for those concerned about becoming infected.
Daniel & Jennifer Chaloner
Thank you for praying for Priority One, and our 39 new global worker candidates. Daniel and Jennifer are preparing to serve in Italy. Pray that they raise their financial support and can settle into their new ministry as soon as COVID-19 allows them to travel. Pray also that God will bless them with wisdom and prayer partners.
Please continue to pray for God’s intervention in the spread of the coronavirus, which has infected more than 33,206,000, and killed nearly 999,240 people around the world.1 Pray for healing for those stricken with COVID-19, and comfort for those whose loved ones have passed away. May God continually strengthen and protect frontline and essential workers. Pray that, as many countries are easing some restrictions, their economies will respond well, and there will not be a second wave of the virus. Pray for protection and provision for people in developing countries who are malnourished and more vulnerable to this disease. Pray also for PAOC global workers who are remaining in the countries where they have been called to minister, and who are continuing to serve their communities with excellence during this global pandemic.
