Fwd: A few reminders for this week Feb. 21 – Feb. 27, 2022

FROM THE MINISTER'S DESK

A Prayer for Canada

Almighty God, the One who orders all things well, we thank you for the gift of governance. Kindle, we pray, in every heart the true love of peace, and guide with your wisdom those who take counsel for Canada, that justice and peace may increase, filling this country with the knowledge of your love. May those who govern order all things in wisdom, righteousness, and peace, to the honour of your name. Most merciful God, heal our sad divisions. Guide your church that we may be one in our service of you. Prince of peace, help your people to be makers of peace. Turn the hearts of Canadians to you, that in your light we may see light and find the true freedom that is found in service of you. This we pray for the sake of your Son our Saviour, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
