On July 1, Canadians from coast to coast will be taking part in Canada Day celebrations. We praise God for the diversity, freedom and achievements of our country. We are also grateful that our nation has welcomed thousands of refugees who can now call Canada home. As we commemorate this special day, pray that Canada would continue to work towards reconciliation with our Indigenous peoples – who first welcomed us here to “Turtle Island”. Please pray that Canada would also advocate for peace and justice in our world. May God grant wisdom and understanding to our leaders in government, as they make decisions that affect the well-being of Canadians and others around the world. Also, we pray that Baptist churches in Canada would be strengthened as they strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus within their communities.
