A Prayer for Our Nation, Canada
“And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer?” — Mark 11:17
Daily, international events are setting the stage for Jesus’ return. As believers in every land continue to pray on behalf of their leaders, God is pouring out His Spirit, making tremendous power available to guide the governments of every nation according to His divine will and plan. As we stand for Canada, we can pray the following:
O, God in heaven, I come before You in the Name of Jesus on behalf of the leaders of this nation. You said the heart of the king is in Your hand and You will turn it whichever way You choose (Proverbs 21:1). I ask You to direct the heart and mind of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and those that govern to make decisions that will lead our country in Your ways and according to Your Word.
I thank You, Lord, for continuing to lead our country according to Your plan. Thank You for all the Spirit-filled members who are already in authority. I ask You to send labourers filled with the spirit of wisdom and might to surround our leaders with godly counsel and insight. I also ask You to place more men and women who will follow You and Your appointed course for Canada.
As we enter the final hours of the last days, I ask for the spirit of faith, the workings of miracles, for signs, wonders, gifts and demonstrations of the Holy Spirit and power to be in strong operation. Let believers in Canada and in every land be unified to stand strong by faith in Jesus, the Anointed One and His Anointing, that Your glory may be revealed in all the earth.
Thank You, Lord, that these requests come to pass. I believe I receive. Amen.
