The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so that we can be quietly about our business of living simply in humble contemplation. This is the way our Saviour God wants us to live. 1 Timothy 1:1-3

Here are 5 prayer items for your consideration:

  1. Journey Home - In June, the organization will be changing leadership. James Grunaeu is stepping down as Executive Director, and Brad Kinnie will be taking on this new role. You can read more here
  2. Refugee Team - For all our team serving refugees, including Mim Wickett (Refugee Ministry Coordinator), Tess Fuller (Refugee Settlement Worker), and our array of volunteers. 
  3. Lebanon - Throughout March, protests have peaked once again. Severe economic downtown and a demand for a new government have caused intense civil unrest within the country. 
  4. Women in Afganistan - May changemakers stand strong in the face of oppression and for the culture to allow more women to rise up, bringing peace to the nation. 
  5. Vancouver Asylum Seekers - Pray for the Afghan community in Vancouver - the ones we know and walk alongside, and also those who may be without support.

A Prayer for International Women's Day 

We pray for our daughters

May this know their strength 

For they reflect Your power

Your image and Your light

In their minds and bodies

In their hearts and souls


We pray for our mothers, for generations of women

Who have gone before us, reflecting Your brilliant love

And we grieve the ways they were

Mocked, maligned, and mistreated 

By systems and powers - because they were women

And we weep because we know this happens even now 


In the name of Jesus, Who chose women to declare His resurrection

We pray for our daughters

And may we, as mothers and fathers 

Be part of a global family that 

Empowers, respects, and celebrates

The women You've created our daughters to be. 



As always, please pray as the Lord leads.
