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.

Gideon’s Army: The Lord is preparing our hands for war, and mobilizing a fearless, “Gideon’s Army” who will fight for the harvest. Pray for labourers to be thrust out into the harvest, pray for those who will labour in prayer to be effective and powerful. Lu 10:2, Jas 5:16
Canada Day: As we come into a time where we celebrate Canada’s birthday, let’s pray this nation will be a place of John 17 unity, and a place that releases God’s healing to the nations. Canada, take your place! Rev 22:2, Jhn 17:23
