A Prayer for British Columbia

A Prayer for British Columbia
Father in heaven, we thank you for beautiful British Columbia and those you have called to leadership for such a time as this. We continue to lift up all 87 MLA’s, those in cabinet and ask for your continued wisdom and anointing to rest on our Premier John Horgan, our Minister of Health Adrian Dix, and our provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry.

We thank you for the spirit of cooperation on display in BC and declare Psalm 133 “how good and pleasant it is when brothers and sisters dwell together in unity… for there the Lord commands His blessing, even life forevermore.” Lord, we pray that BC will continue to be a province unified in purpose, hopeful in heart, and clear in strategy and vision.

Father, we recognise the reopening of BC will require great insight. We pray our leaders will be like the men of Issachar “who understood the signs of the times and knew the best course of action to take.” With this in mind, we lift up the following critical ministries and those giving leadership: BC’s Minister of Finance Carol James, our Minister of Education Rob Fleming, Minister of Agriculture Lana Popham, Minister of Mental Health & Addiction Judy Darcy, and Minister of Municipal Affairs & Housing Selena Robinson. Lord, grant to each one divine insight and godly wisdom as they serve and plan for BC’s future.

We continue to bring BC’s front-line healthcare workers to You. Gracious God, please protect them and give them skill, sympathy, and resilience as they care for the sick. We also ask that You give wisdom to BC researchers searching for a cure.

Finally, we declare again:
The citizens of British Columbia are not people of fear; we are people of courage.
We are not people who think only of ourselves; we are people who protect our neighbours’ safety.
We are not people of greed; we are people of generosity.
We are Your people, God, giving and loving, wherever we are, whatever it costs.
