Catholics- God is moving in a remarkable way in the Catholic church, let's "bless what He's doing". Pray for a clear, biblical presentation of the gospel to be found in every parish and for a widespread move of God shifting cultural Catholics into a living relationship with Christ.
West wind- Cry out for the west wind (renewing, reviving) to blow across the land. Pray also for an authentic awakening in the Church throughout western Canada, for a restored first love, faith, and fire.
Worship- This is a year where worship is taking the lead, Judah will go before the army of God! Intercede for those who lead worship in any capacity, pray for churches to cultivate more of a spirit of worship, and seek the Lord for all believers to walk in a lifestyle of worship. Also pray for fresh, powerful anointing to be poured out the whole ministry of worship in Canada.
No Intimidation- Prophetically, and from our Prime Minister's mouth, this is the charge to Canada. Intercede for the Church to shake off any sense of inferiority, false humility, or the fear of man. Contend for bold, humble leadership whether for Canada among the community of nations, in the Church's interaction with secular society, or in the personal level of our witness.
Government & Military- Pray for the government and military in the aftermath of the October 22 events. Pray also for the ongoing nomination process in preparation for next year's election. May the men and women of God's choosing end up on the ballot.
America- There has been a dramatic shift in the US with the recent midterm elections. Pray that this shift goes way beyond partisan politics to a nation stepping into awakening and revival. The promise is strong, pray for a new Jesus movement and a nation wholeheartedly returning to God.
Pray Again - It’s time to pray again- with new faith- for the things that have been long term prayer needs. Family salvations, churches that have struggled, health issues, elusive breakthroughs of all kinds. God is moving and answering.
Unity - Cry out for Christ-centered unity to rise across the nation. Pray for city-wide movements to prosper, for inter-church ministries to thrive. Ask the Father for a building up of authentic koinonia and love for each other that supersedes denominational, generational or ethnic separation in the Body of Christ.
Harvest - Intercede for the lost with a heart full of compassion and faith. Pray that God will restore the awareness of eternity and the urgency to share the gospel in our generation. Agree with the Lord that NOW laborers will be thrust out into the ripe Canadian harvest. Lift up the communities least evangelized.
Persecuted Church - Pray for our brothers and sisters who are facing horrific persecution in this hour. Pray for God to protect them, but also for them to be victorious overcomers in the midst of the fire.
Boldness - Seek the Lord for the Canadian Church to rise in boldness. Let there be bold faith, bold preaching of the gospel and bold vision in this hour. Let all fear of man, intimidation and indecision give way to the power of the Kingdom.
