Heavenly Father, we pray for our magnificent northern territories today. You have a given Canada a rich treasure filled with beauty, vast open spaces, a pristine environment and remarkable people, some whose ancestors have lived in the north for thousands of years. We thank you for for their resilience, resourcefulness and their warm hearts in an often cold and desolate land. As we pray for our northern friends today, we ask that You would pour out your Spirit upon them. We pray especially for churches, pastors and ministry leaders and ask that you would fill them with fresh vision, passion, creativity and strategies that will help them impact their communities for you.
We pray for Premier Caroline Cochrane (NWT), Premier Sandy Silver (YK) and Premier Joe Savikataaq (NU). Lord, we ask that you would give them your wisdom as they lead their territories through this turbulent season. As they navigate the challenges that COVID-19 brings with it, we ask that you would give them, their cabinets and fellow members strategies and ideas that will protect the people they serve and help return them to a place of prosperity and great strength.
Lord, come today to our north in golden splendour and awesome majesty! (Job 37:22) We ask this in the mighty and great name of Jesus, Amen!
