Meekness- This is a fruit of the Spirit that is being highlighted prophetically. Jesus told us that the meek would inherit the earth (Mt 5:5), and that we should learn from his meekness (Mt 11:29). Let’s stand in the gap that biblical meekness would spring up all throughout the Church.
Unity- We live in days of extreme division, but God’s plan is to have a perfectly united Church. Unity in these days, will proclaim God’s glory and love in a voice that is louder than clamour. Let us give ourselves to contend for deep, Christ-centred unity.
Leadership- Pray for the gift of leadership to strengthen in the Canadian Church. May those in leadership roles be freshly anointed to lead with wisdom, faith, and in full submission to the scriptures and the Holy Spirit.
Parents- Pray for parents in this time of Covid, as it is bringing tremendous additional stresses into families. Cry out for grace for parents that have been thrust into homeschooling and feel overwhelmed. Pray for the Lord to turn this situation into his good for kids and families in surprising ways.
End of Covid- Continue to intercede for the end of Covid! Pray for the acceleration of vaccinations for all who want them and for the other public health measures to be effective. Lift up those who are sick and those who are isolated. Pray for the ones who are now unemployed because of the pandemic.
