Recent events have brought me to a point where I realize that the greatest thing I can do as a Christian is pray. Canada has come under attack in such a subtle way that it is at the edge of policy change which will destroy our nation's freedoms. And so, I call Canadians to pray. It isn't easy. It isn't flashy and showy. I may be the only one logging onto this blog and praying. It needs to be done though. So I begin. I begin with a prayer for righteousness.
Dear Lord God,
Maker of Heaven and earth, King of kings and Lord of lords, we call on you in this time of need. We know that you are all-knowing and all-seeing. We know that you have provided a way for your righteousness to be spread across the earth and yet we continually ignore that way. Right now, we repent. We ask you to forgive us for our complacency. Forgive us for taking our freedoms for granted. Forgive us for ignoring that those freedoms came from you. Forgive us that we have allowed heresies and false teachings to run amok in our country to the point where our laws are now being questioned. We repent. And we ask for your help. Lord, you alone are powerful enough to confound those who preach laws which bind us. You alone have the strength to raise up leaders who will challenge the lies that are being sown across society under the banner of freedom of religion. You alone can turn the hearts of your created ones back to you and this is what we ask of you. We ask you to move in the heart of our Prime Minister. Remind him of your great power. Remind him of your grace and mercy and justice. Give him courage and strength to stand firm in the laws our forefathers put in place--laws that were created from your word, the Bible. Open his eyes to the corruption around him. Open his heart to the threats against our freedoms as a Christian country. Protect him as he leads us. Guard his family and keep them safe from hands that would harm, lips that would lie, ideas that would contradict your word. Bless him as he works under your banner. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
