 PRAYERlines – May 2024

“The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.” -Samuel Chadwick


Praise God . . . Answered Prayers

  • The Men’s Group in the Parry Sound/Muskoka has been creating community, supporting each other and learning from one another.
  • Nick and Vivian were blessed with an 8 passenger van!
  • We are thankful for how the online Healing Together Connect Group is going this year with a simplified approach and a small nucleus being formed.

Prayer Priorities . . .

  1. Pray for strength, wisdom and discernment for Ben Lim as he leads Rising Above and explores some potential partnerships. Pray about a possible expansion of our administrative team.
  2. Pray for Terry & Brenda Martin (Niverville, MB), as they minister with the Rising Above Band.May 3-5 they will be ministering in Sioux Lookout, ON at a memorial gathering for those who have lost a loved one to tragedy.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Pray for Johan Strydom (Parry Sound & Muskoka, ON) as he meets with clients who are struggling with health, depression or other issues. Pray also for continued significant conversations for the men’s group, which typically has 8-14 men. Continue to pray especially for more financial support.
  6. 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.
  7. Pray for Nick & Vivian Helliwell as the Regina Discipleship Project grows in depth, scope and exposure in both Indigenous as well as Christian communities.  As summer approaches, they have their son’s memorial in June as well as a number of other community events planned both in Regina and surrounding reserves.
