A live stream prayer service will be held that evening on The Anglican Church of Canada Facebook page at 7pm EDT.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:4-7
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask you to join together (in your own homes) to observe a day of prayer asking God to heal our land.
How to participate:
It’s easy! We ask you to commit to this National Day of Prayer by taking a few minutes (or longer) to address our worries and our hopes to our heavenly Father:
· To stop the spread of the virus
· To heal those who are sick
· To protect their caregivers
· For God’s wisdom to guide our leaders.
· For His divine insight and understanding to lead the scientists to find treatments and a preventative vaccine.
· That people would take seriously the words of caution and adhere to all guidelines
· That God’s peace would guard our hearts and minds
“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:13-14
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. Luke 18:1
