KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON
 
If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.                                                                              ~Isaiah 7:9b
Psalm 47 7-9
For God is the King over all the earth, sing to him a psalm of praise,
God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne. The nobles of the nations assemble as the people of the God of Abraham, for the Kings of the earth belong to God; he is greatly exalted.
 
It's been 70 years since the end of the second world war and the now famous poster 'Keep Calm and Carry On'was destroyed. This poster was never used as planned as it was only intended to be revealed upon the invasion of Britain by Germany.  As this never happened the poster was not officially seen by the public. The discovery of the few remaining posters with the simple but effective message with the Kings crown over the words, struck me spiritually almost immediately when I read it. No matter what we face as the Church of Jesus Christ our King, the words of scripture will keep us calm so we can carry on with all he has called us to do. The trivialization of the original meaning and intent of these words truly speak of our society that replaces the true King and his message with many ideas to fill the void we feel and the longing we have for peace and calm to carry on in life's journey.
 
 
          We need to be Christ centred in our asking, not crisis focused.

Tuesday, November 17
 
We gathered in the prayer room for teaching and       prayer. Our focus became the concerns for the         Syrian refugees and how   Canadians would respond to the government's decision
to bring 25,000 people here by the end of this year.
Rob asked in prayer:
 
                  "Oh God,what can we do to help?"
 
Within thirty minutes, three South Korean women from New Jersey arrived at our door with a young woman who worked at the Jesus of Nazareth Church in Bab-touma, Damascus for fourteen years. Originally from Ethiopia, Christin had to leave her home after her conversion and so she went to Syria.
 
The circumstances in Syria were worsening for her and the believers encouraged her to leave for her own safety.
During her service in Syria she met a Korean missionary from the East Gate Prayer House in New Jersey, which is the connection that brought the women here to see how she was faring in Canada.
A Korean believer from Toronto whom Christin had met gave her a little book titled, We Have A Voice. Christin lived in the prayer house in Damascus and longed to find one here. She asked her friends to bring her to NHOP. She was sponsored by an Ethiopian Church in Ottawa for one year and now she resides at Nhop. 
We are newly challenged to pray for our brothers and sisters in Syria and elsewhere and we are so thankful that Canada is encouraging families and Churches to participate in the effort to provide a new start in life here.                                                                          
 
                    How can I help sponsor a family?
Prayer Points
 
"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." Matthew 7:12
Pray for the Church in Canada to exceed all expectations in her acceptance and care of the refugees who are arriving in Canada shortly.
 
Pray for the government and other agency officials and volunteers who have the task of processing these newcomers and the sponsors who will welcome them to Canada.
 
The Oath or Solemn Affirmation of Allegiance
 
Before a duly elected Member may take his or her seat and vote in the House of Commons, the Member must take an oath or make a solemn affirmation of allegiance or loyalty to the Sovereign and sign the Test Roll (a book whose pages are headed by the text of the oath). When a Member swears or solemnly affirms allegiance to the Queen as Sovereign of Canada, he or she is also swearing or solemnly affirming allegiance to the institutions the Queen represents, including the concept of democracy.
 
Thus, a Member is making a pledge to conduct him-or herself in the best interests of the country. The oath or solemn affirmation reminds a Member of the serious obligations and responsibilities he or she is assuming. 
   
This morning at The National House of Prayer, we had the privilege of meeting with and praying for a newly elected MP. His desire was to commit himself to God prior to his swearing in ceremony.
Let us be reminded to pray for our elected officials with this oath as a guide and the scriptures as our foundation.
 
Pray for Prime Minister Trudeau as he leads the 42nd Parliament for him to discover the moral benefits ofwisdom so that he will understand what is right and just and fair-every good path. For wisdom to enter his heart and for knowledge to be pleasant to his soul. For discretion to protect him and for understanding to guard him.                                                                                                                                                                Proverbs 2:9-11
