Prayerlines – April 2021
“God shapes the world by prayer. The more prayer there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil …” E.M. Bounds
Praise God . . . Answered Prayers
- Our Hope is Rising Webathon raised over $22,400! We thoroughly enjoyed connecting with many people throughout the evening and were so encouraged and blessed by the financial support!
- Johan (Parry Sound/Muskoka) has been provided meeting space in 2 different healing centres for when he has clients. He also continues to meet clients at The Hub in Parry Sound. Johan currently has a number of full time in-person clients and continues to track with a lot of other people by phone and social media.
Prayer Priorities . . .
1. Pray for Daren George (Smithers, BC) as he struggles with some health issues that have continued to linger since his stroke. Pray also for wisdom as he encourages and counsels many who are coming to him. Pray for the planning of a possible workshop and possible conference in his area.
2. Pray for Johan Strydom (Parry Sound & Muskoka, ON) as he walks alongside people individually and through the Grief Recovery course. Pray for those in the men’s group who are anxious for the restrictions to lift so that they can start meeting again. Pray also for those who are on the difficult road of becoming clean. Pray for wisdom as there is a lot of pain in the community.
3. Pray for Rosie Boskoyous (Edmonton, AB) as she has reconnected with a lady she was counselling. Pray for wisdom in her courses and personal life.
4. Pray for Ben Lim as he leads and directs Rising Above going forward. Pray for the Youth Task Force as they discern how to bring healing to our young people. Pray also as he looks at other ministry and funding possibilities.
5. Pray for Terry and Brenda Martin as they minister with the Rising Above Band. The Band will be leading worship for the First Nations Community Church online service on Easter Sunday. Pray for the Band as they deal with the tight Covid restrictions in Manitoba which makes it difficult to be together to practice and expand their ministry.
6. Please pray for the Conference Committee as they plan to put together a conference online.
7. Pray for the Rising Above Board. Karen Jolly has served faithfully since 2012 and has now completed the maximum number of terms. We are looking for 1-3 Indigenous people to serve on the board.
THANKS for your willingness to pray…
