Canada 150 - Praying with Purpose

Canada-title2.jpg

As Canada celebrates 150 years, join Gather Women on the 1st of every month as we pray for our nation. Let’s celebrate with thankful hearts the rich diversity of each province as together they unite and strengthen our nation. This month our prayer focus is on Manitoba.

  • Pray for Premier Brian Pallister in his first year of provincial leadership. Ask God for wisdom, focus and integrity as he continues to lead the province.
     
  • Pray for the homeless and those living in poverty in Manitoba. In the cold temperatures, every day thousands of lives are at risk. Ask God to provide funding for overnight beds in local shelters as well as funding for permanent housing solutions in the northern communities.
     
  • Manitoba has a beautiful indigenous community. Pray hearts would be open to learning from our indigenous brothers and sisters as they lead the way to understanding and reconciliation. May reconciliation be the gift of Canada's 150th anniversary and may it begin with us.
     
  • Pray for the churches of Manitoba to seek unity in Christ. Pray for church leaders to gain a fresh vision for working together in their communities and celebrate the collective strength of the local churches. Pray for the church in Manitoba to be a bright light and safe place for those who do not know Jesus to come and find hope and freedom in Christ.

God keep our land glorious and free. In Jesus Name. (2 Corinthians 3:17)
