Prayer Items February 21st, 2021

For our Church Community

1.  Pray for Logos as we have entered our 40th Year as a Church. Our 2021 – 2022 theme is “Be Renewed”. May we move forward with new initiatives, spirit, and unity that will make us true witnesses for Jesus Christ as we seek to be a disciple making church. May we be mindful of God’s blessings, be alert and sensitive to where He’ll lead us.

2.  As we begin 2021, may God give us a heart to go forth and serve both inside and outside of Logos to make disciples. May we also share the hope that we have in Christ and continue to pray for families or individuals with spiritual and material needs that they may know Jesus Christ. 

3.  Please pray for Interim Deacon Board and Deacon Board Structure/ Function Review Committee, may God give them wisdom and discernment as they lead our church. Also pray for the 2021 Common and Congregational Language Councils, that will God lead them to serve the church with faith.

4.  As we continue to navigate into the "COVID-19" outbreak, let us as a community of faith seek God’s guidance and strength to go through this challenging time.

For God’s Kingdom

1.  Let’s remember in our prayers our missionaries and ministry partners near and far.  Due to worldwide government restrictions, we pray for missionaries waiting for visas to go back to their mission fields and for those who are in limbo in their ministries.

2.  May God continue to motivate us to support and participate in mission opportunities both near and far.

3.  As we continue to navigate into the critical state of COVID – 19, let’s pray for love and peace at this time as we show the love of Christ to those who are around us by praying:

a.  For opportunities to bless others by our Church’s special COVID-19 Community Initiatives.

b.  For the vaccines production and distribution around the world, we pray for worldwide outbreak of COVID-19 for God’s mercy to heal those who are infected. We also pray for our federal and provincial leaders as they seek the best practices to protect all Canadians from the virus and the new variants.

c.   For those who have been impacted by COVID-19: front line essential workers, medical staff, those who still need to go to work daily or work from home, small businesses suffering from lost income, families struggling with finances, seniors living in long-term care homes, students and teachers who will be going back to school. May God protect and comfort them and their families during this challenging time.

4.  Please pray for a confused and challenging world. We pray for those who are trying to come home to Canada and affected by the new mandatory quarantine rules for arriving travellers, pray for the Military Coup in Myanmar, the glacier burst in India, and high global unemployment.

Congregational Needs

1.  Pray for our online Zoom EM prayer meetings at Wednesday at 7:30 pm and that people will be encouraged to participate in them during this time of uncertainty in the world.

2.  Please remember in prayer our EM/YM Fellowships, Katalyst (High School) as they have Iron Chef Night and Refresh (Young Adults) as they have Online Fellowship Night on Friday, February 26th as well as Philia (Junior High) as they have Premix Session 3 Night on Saturday, February 27th. May this time of church suspension of physical gatherings be a time for these fellowship and small group ministries to grow and be strengthened.
