A Prayer for British Columbia

logo - Leading Influence

Heavenly Father, we cry out to You today on behalf of our great province British Columbia and for those You have called to leadership. We lift up all those in cabinet and ask for a double portion of anointing to rest on our Premier, John Horgan, our Minister of Health, Adrian Dix and on our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry.

We acknowledge the tremendous responsibility they are carrying – God grant them keen discernment, give them godly wisdom and surround them today with men and women who have creative ideas and solutions. May each of them have a peace that garrisons their minds and calms our hearts.

We also 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.

We declare:
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.

Today we hold tight to Your promise, “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.”
