It is so encouraging to know that there are currently many prayer ministries that have begun interceding for the October Federal Elections. This reminded me of a memorable time in Kiev Ukraine where we met with prayer leaders, pastors and visited the Parliament together to pray for their nation.
This photo gives you a glimpse of that visit. Notice the woman holding an orange flag; I recall commenting to her that it looked like the flag used during the orange revolution demonstrations during the elections.
Then she relayed the story. Many Christians gathered during that time among the crowds to pray and serve hot drinks. As the numbers attending increased, they choose a bright orange flag to indicate where they were meeting for prayer.
This burst on the scene as a symbol of the Ukrainian peoples' hope for a positive change in their government leading towards democracy. Recent events in Ukraine remind us of those who are still praying for their nation and that change requires us to persevere in prayer and action.
In Canada we are privileged to live in a free and democratic society. May we not neglect our responsibility to care for our nation as God has instructed us to do. As we gather in our 10's, 50's and 100's to pray for God's best for our nation over the next few months we can be assured that He hears us.
Church in Canada: burst forth in prayer on behalf of our nation!
You are the salt of the earth......Matthew 5: 13-15
Rob has responded to a prompting from God to produce a booklet to help equip the Church to prepare for the October federal election. As he says."Now is not the time for the Canadian Church to be asleep."
The goal is to distribute this booklet as widely as possible to feed the call to prayer for the sake of our nation! What would happen in Canada if 100% of the Church voted?
This booklet is written from a non partisan perspective and presents a biblical view on voting and also reminds us of some important issues that Christians need to consider as they go to the polls.
The cost of the book is $5.00 plus shipping or a PDF version is available at the same price of $5.00.
For orders of 20 or more books shipping is included.
