The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada [EFC] and the World Evangelical Alliance [WEA] are inviting Canadians and churches to a Global Day of Prayer and Fasting as part of the Church response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As our country grapples with COVID-19, The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada is praying for our churches, our government, church leaders and our friends and neighbours. We invite you to do the same.
In days like these we can remember and be confident that God really is “our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging” (Psalm 46:1–3).
Please join us in praying especially for those directly impacted by the virus, for health care and frontline workers, for those who are ill and suffering, for Members of Parliament, Senators, for the Prime Minister and Premiers, and for our churches especially, as they become light and a comfort to their communities.
Theologian Walter Wink commenting on Revelation 8:1-5 says:
“History belongs to the intercessors—those who believe and pray the future into being.”
Later this week, we will post some details about how we can pray together when while at a distance.
