A Word From Steve Jones
August 19th, 2019
Dear pastors, missionaries, chaplains and friends,
Steve Jones here…
Charlie Lyons - Ministry to MLA's
Charlie told me about the “Pray Canada” campaign, with the hope that Fellowship churches and people will join in. I will let Charlie explain it to you:
“As a Fellowship pastor and Fellowship Partner Chaplain, I know it’s very likely that September is pretty much the last thing on your mind with summer now in full swing. However, that’s when the first ever Pray Canada election prayer campaign launches. The vision is simple: to mobilize 100,000 Canadians to ask God to give us men and women to lead our nation through whom He will accomplish His plans and purposes for our nation.
“Leading Influence (the organization behind this initiative; leadinginfluence.com)
isn’t partisan, political, or issue driven; there’s no secret agenda to vote someone in or someone else out. We believe that God has prepared people across the political spectrum to serve our nation in government and in opposition, and our prayer is that all of them are elected!
“The prayer campaign starts September 8 and will run through until Election Day on October 21. On each day of the campaign, we will post a daily video prayer on our website and deliver it by email and on social media.
“Ordinary Canadians from every part of our country will be assigned Scriptures and themes and provided with a recorded prayer.
“Furthermore, the vision is to have at least one church in every Electoral District across Canada. We are asking five things of our partner churches (we provide all the resources for the first four):
“With a thoughtful and well-executed strategy such as Pray Canada, how can we not embrace the vision and get on board with living out this Scripture in such a practical way
“Please prayerfully consider registering your church on the Pray Canada site:
“If you have any questions, please let me know and I will be happy to answer them. I can be reached at email@example.com.
Let’s all prayerfully consider joining this prayer campaign. We are a dozen weeks out from the election and six to seven weeks from the start of this Pray Canada campaign…don’t delay…join today.
