Prayer Items April 25th, 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 and be alert and sensitive to where He’ll lead us.

2.    As we enter into a new chapter of Logos, may we as a Church continue to be mindful to actively share the hope that we have in Christ. May we be encouraged and inspired by the various 40th Anniversary Celebration Activities to continue to bring Glory to God in all that we do as a faith community.

3.    Pray for the foyer renovation and AV upgrade projects that people become behind this project and to hear from as many stakeholders as possible as we strive to refresh the Church to prepare for the future to glorify God.

4.    Pray for the Town Hall Meeting in May and the 2021 AGM in June.  Pray that God will guide Logos to move forward and let us be excited for the future.

5.    Pray for the students transitioning and especially for the transition of the grade 6 students into EM/YM.  Pray for all our students who are facing the uncertainties of internship and graduation.

For God’s Kingdom

1.  Continue to pray for the continuation of our 40th Anniversary Initiative “Blessed to Bless" for 2021. May God drive us forward to support local evangelical organizations and join hands in revealing God’s kingdom.  We pray for the special offering in April to support the "Transform Toronto Together" campaign of Yonge Street Mission.

2.  Let’s remember in our prayers our missionaries and ministry partners near and far. May God continue to prepare their hearts as they venture through uncertainties and challenges in their ministry circumstances.

3.  May God continue to motivate us to support and live on missions both near and far.

4.  As we continue to navigate through 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 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 are adjusting to remote learning. May God protect and comfort them and their families during this challenging time.

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

c.  Let us not be relaxed but continue to be mindful to keep safe and healthy and continue to pray for those who are infected.

5.  Please pray for a confused and challenging world for the spark of hope that is beginning to rise among people. Pray that we can share the hope of Jesus with others and that the Church can reach out to the world.  Pray also for world leaders who are heavily burdened with fighting COVID while taking care of the needs of their people.

Congregational Needs

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

May this time of church suspension of physical gatherings be a time for these fellowship and small group ministries to grow and be strengthened.
