Clear Eyes - "If the eye is bad, the whole body is full of darkness." (Mt 6: 23) Pray for the sight of the Church t0 be healthy and unhindered by “logs”: wounds, error or distortions. Pray that the prophetic and teaching ministries of the Church be sources of light for the Body of Christ.
Dig Canals- Contend in prayer for the Church to be prepared for revival. Intercede that we would not take shortcuts in our discipleship or in building healthy churches so we are able to serve a great ingathering, steward a great outpouring. (see prophetic word)
Compassion - Cry out for the Body of Christ to see the harvest and be moved with compassion. Not just moved emotionally, but moved to prayer and moved to take action. Intercede for a great activation of mission and a Spirit-empowered proclamation of the gospel all through Canada. My we be ones that “cannot but tell.”
Encouragement - Pray for a widespread activation of the spiritual ministry of encouragement. Ask the Lord for encouragement that is impactful and life giving at a deep level, not just shallow, “pep talk” words, even if well intended. May Spirit-anointed encouragement break demonic assignments of heaviness, defeat and even despair.
