As we celebrate Canada 150 this week, let's remember to pray for the strength and future of our great nation. Pray that our government leaders would serve with wisdom, grace and integrity as they make important decisions – here at home and around the world. Pray that the Church in Canada would be a shining light and a strong voice in our nation, reflecting the Christian values that helped shape the foundation of this country, both in word and deed. Also, continue to pray for the increased number of refugees that now call Canada home. We encourage you to use our Canada 150 video during your Sunday service or church event this weekend!
Please pray for a group of 17 students from across Atlantic Canada that will depart for a short-term mission trip this week. The students will serve as leaders at Kamp Tumaini – an annual camp for children infected or affected by HIV and AIDS in Kenya. The camp will be held in a local high school this year, hosting games, rallies and small groups to help children overcome the effects of stigma and build an inclusive and caring community. Please pray that the Kenyan students would feel a sense of belonging and experience renewed hope through the love of Jesus. Also, pray that God would provide strength and wisdom to the Canadian students as they serve as camp leaders. Check our Facebook page for updates on how the camp is progressing.
Due to flash floods caused by the onset of the monsoon season, thousands have been left homeless across Northeast India, as houses have been completely submerged. Please pray for those affected by the flooding, and for our partners in India. Pray for safety, provision of resources, and comfort in this time of great need and loss. Please also pray for the rebuilding process for villages and settlements that have been affected.
