Praying With Purpose

Pray for Quebec

Thank you for joining Gather Women on the 1st of every month as we pray for our nation. We have so much to celebrate and be thankful for including the rich diversity of each province as together they unite and strengthen our nation. This month our prayer focus is Quebec.

  • Pray for Premier Philippe Couillard for wisdom as he leads. Pray that government leaders in Quebec would be trustworthy to administer effective financial solutions across the province.
     
  • Pray also for leaders to make a favourable way for church buildings to be established.
     
  • Pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit to begin in Quebec and impact the nation of Canada. Pray for healthy churches to grow and new churches to be planted.
     
  • A religious spirit remains fighting to keep its stronghold but the rise of healthy life giving churches all across this province seems to be strengthening the fresh air of the kingdom. The tension across the province when it comes the church seems to have softened in this current generation. Pray for a strong spiritual reawakening across the province of Quebec. After years of 'hard soil' church leaders sense an openness and evidence of people seeking spiritual truth.
     
  • Pray specifically for businesses to continue to flourish in Quebec. It is not an easy province to do business in because of the increased cost of needing to be bilingual in most business interaction. Pray for entrepreneurs to thrive, for the city to prosper and the kingdom to advance.
     
  • Pray for a deeper sense of honour for God ordained spiritual leadership. Where there has been defensiveness and cynicism towards the church and its leaders, pray for a trust and openness to increase.
     
  • Pray for lost people to find Jesus. There is a generation who have never heard of the name of Jesus. There are families that need to know true biblical community.
     
  • Pray those God is calling to serve Him in Quebec would have safe passage and an open door to immigrate into this stunning province.
     
  • God keep our land glorious and free. In Jesus Name. (2 Corinthians 3:17)  

Thank you for joining with other women across Canada in prayer.

Pray for Ontario

These past six months we have been celebrating 150 years of our great nation. We have so much to celebrate and be thankful for. God has given us a rich inheritance in our bountiful land. We can indeed sing with the Psalmist that our “boundary lines have fallen in pleasant places”. We want to continue to pray for each province. This month our prayer focus is on Ontario.

  • Pray for Premier Kathleen Wynne, as she makes decisions and guides the provincial leaders of Ontario.
     
  • Ask God to protect workers and job sites at the many “Build On Ontario” projects, which are in place this summer. These projects work to improve the diverse infrastructure all across the province, as well as to provide a boost to the economy through job creation.
     
  • Pray for Michael Coteau, Minister of Children and Youth Services, as he leads a new mentorship program entitled “Together We Can” which aims to eliminate systemic racism and improve opportunities for black children and youth in Toronto, Hamilton, Windsor, and Ottawa.
     
  • Many churches are operating day camps for the children and families in their local communities this summer. Pray for many lives to be impacted for the Kingdom. Also pray for strong spiritual leadership within these programs. Pray for both leaders and children to grow deeper in their faith journeys.
     
  • Pray for the church and para-church leaders across the province as plans are being made for ministry initiatives to begin in September. Ask God to grant these leaders godly wisdom and discernment as programs are put in place. May God use these churches to bring about renewal and change within each of their respective communities.

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

Pray for Nova Scotia

Canada - We Love You!  Happy 150th Birthday!

Coast to coast people from all cultures and backgrounds gather to celebrate with gratitude the freedom we enjoy in this nation.  
There is also an awareness that the past was not perfect for many and we can only look to the future for truth to be spoken and reconciliation to sweep the land.

Today we continue to celebrate the uniqueness of Canada’s heritage and peoples - one province at a time!  Nova Scotia - we celebrate you today and lift up our prayers on your behalf!

Happy Canada Day!

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 Nova Scotia.

  • Pray for Premier Stephen McNeil as he provides leadership and oversight to the people and economy of Nova Scotia.
     
  • Pray for the industries that drive the economy of this province. Particularly that the fishing, agriculture and mining industries would experience safety, clarity and bounty this season.
     
  • Canada 150 celebrations will be underway as Nova Scotia commemorates Canada’s birthday.
    Nova Scotia was one of the four provinces who initially joined together to birth our great nation at Confederation in 1867. These local celebrations will draw tourists to Nova Scotia as well, which will help to boost the economy.
     
  • Pray for the Health Minister, Randy Delorey, as he oversees the critical expansion of Dartmouth General Hospital. The much needed redevelopment will ensure better health care services to all residents.
     
  • Pray for ministry events taking place at local churches, including day camps and student ministry retreats. Pray for students who are looking for summer jobs and ministry opportunities.
     
  • Pray for the Christian leaders, for strength and rejuvenation of vision in ministry. As many pastors and leaders may have the opportunity to vacation this month, pray for meaningful moments with family and with their Saviour.
