“We are never more like Christ than in prayers of intercession.”—Austin Phelps


Praise God . . . Answered Prayers

  • A young man in Regina who recently gave his life to Christ was baptized.
  • Carrie has started a faith circle on Shawanaga and has a few clients lined up.
  • The Rising Above Band had a very special time of worship at the Family Life Centre in Winnipeg where the Holy Spirit was moving in a powerful way.

Prayer Priorities . . .

  1. Pray for Carrie Misquadis (Parry Sound & Muskoka, ON) as she begins meeting with clients and putting to use her Grief Recovery training. Please pray for her health as well.
  2. Pray for Nick & Vivian Helliwell as the Regina Discipleship Project grows in depth, scope and exposure in both Indigenous as well as Christian communities.  Pray as they represent Rising Above at a few summer events. Pray for them as they continue to work through their grief and also support other family members.
  3. Pray for strength and discernment for Ben Lim as he leads Rising Above. Pray for an abundance of God’s love to be shared as he spends much of his summer participating in the local life of the Church in Waskaganish, QC and visiting Nemaska, QC. Pray also for wisdom and execution as he plans the annual board/staff retreat Aug 18-24.
  4. Pray for Terry & Brenda Martin (Niverville, MB), as they minister with the Rising Above Band. Pray for God’s direction as they plan ministry trip itineraries for August. They will be ministering in Dryden, ON on August 3rd and in Arviat, NU August 16-18.
  5. Pray for Daren George (Smithers, BC) and the local committee as they plan a healing event with the Rising Above Band at Rock Nest Ranch, BC Aug 30-Sep 1. Pray as Daren deals with many continuing deaths while counselling others and exploring ways to increase access to workshops.  Pray for his health and for his own grieving process.
  6. 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.
  7. Pray for Johan Strydom (Parry Sound & Muskoka, ON) as he meets with clients. 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. Pray for the clients who will take a break for summer.
  8. Pray for one more Indigenous individual to serve on the Board at Rising Above.
