From Tim McCoy, Executive Minister:
Our Canadian Baptist family is full and rich with Christians who represent dozens of cultures and countries from around the world. We are blessed by the intercultural make-up of this family of churches. In that mix are people, Canadian Baptists, who today are overcome with worry and concern for their immediate and distant family members in Iraq, Ukraine, Syria, Israel and Palestine. Let us join together today in prayer for our brothers and sisters in Christ as they seek to find ways to care for, support and possibly see those they love, who today find themselves in harm’s way around the world.
Let us commit to pray for:
- Peace in volatile regions
- The overwhelming power of the Gospel to transform the hearts of leaders
- Safety and deliverance for those being persecuted
- Canadian Baptists whose family members are affected by the escalation of violence and persecution
The LORD is near to all them that call on him, to all that call on him in truth. Psalms 145:18
