 PRAYERlines – April 2024


“Prayer is not overcoming God’s reluctance, but laying hold of His willingness.”  Martin Luther.


Praise God . . . Answered Prayers

  • The Rising Above Band had a powerful time of ministry and prayer in Muskrat Dam.
  • Two individuals made decisions to follow Christ at the Gospel jamboree that the Rising Above Band was ministering at in Sioux Lookout.

Prayer Priorities . . .

  1. Pray for Terry & Brenda Martin (Niverville, MB), as they minister with the Rising Above Band in Bonneyville, AB April 5-7. Please pray for healing for Brenda’s sciatic nerve pain.
  2. Pray for Daren George (Smithers, BC) as he works with a local committee to plan a Rising Above Conference at Rock Nest Ranch, BC. Pray as Daren continues to deal with many deaths while counselling others and exploring partnerships to increase access to workshops.  Pray for his health and for his own personal grieving process.
  3. Pray for Cory Illingworth (Regina, SK) as he raises support and establishes his ministry. Pray for the young men he has been mentoring and for wisdom in navigating protocols. Pray for understanding and discernment as he learns more about Indigenous history and how he can best minister with Rising Above.
  4. Pray for Johan Strydom (Parry Sound & Muskoka, ON) in how to best support a family member. Pray for clients who are struggling – some with health, others with depression or other issues. Pray also for continued significant conversations for the men’s group, which typically has 11-14 men. Continue to pray for more financial support.
  5. Pray for Carrie Misquadis (Parry Sound & Muskoka, ON) as she goes through practical training with Grief Recovery. Pray as she looks for a new client and as she studies the Bible with another client. Please pray for her health as well.
  6. Pray for wisdom for Nick & Vivian Helliwell(Regina, SK) in how to respond to the conversations about the challenges of being both Indigenous and Christian. Pray that God would provide a vehicle for them. Pray as they minister to others in their grief while they continue to support their daughter and grieve their own son’s passing.
  7. Pray for strength, wisdom and discernment for Ben Lim as he leads Rising Above and explores some possible partnerships. Pray for the online Healing Together Connect Group to be a place of connection, learning, encouragement, and healing.
  8. Pray for one more Indigenous individual to serve on the Board at Rising Above.
