Pray for Our Government on June 29th
Churches are invited to dedicate a portion of their Sunday morning service on this date to pray for Canada and at least one elected governmental leader.

Get ready with your Canadian Flags for Government Prayer Sunday June 29, 2008, (the Sunday before Canada Day, July 1st). 

Pray that Canada will be a country that honours and serves God...

The National House of Prayer in Ottawa is encouraging churches and individuals from every part of the nation to take part in this second annual national prayer initiative. Sunday June 29th is a day set apart for churches of all denominations across Canada to dedicate a portion of their Sunday morning service in their own churches to specifically pray for Canada and at least one elected governmental leader. 

The website www.nhop.ca contains resources for this special day which include a Prayer for the Nation, a Prayer for Those in Authority and a Prayer for Leaders in All Three levels of Government.  The resources also include a template for a church bulletin and a letter that can be sent out to encourage and thank government leaders on behalf of churches and individuals. The National House of Prayer leadership hopes the nation's leaders will receive many letters of encouragement that day along with much prayer support.

The purpose of the National House of Prayer is to establish and maintain an ongoing Christian presence in Canada's National Capital Region that will provide informed, focused and sustained prayer for Canada and its leaders.  Here are some suggestions of who and what to pray for:
