I would like to call all of us to pray for our country and especially for our leaders in light of the horrific events of yesterday and indeed this week.
Twice this week we have experienced the shock of direct attacks of terrorism on our soil. Our prayers are with the Cirillo and Vincent families who this week lost sons, husbands and fathers. Our prayers are with the men and women of our armed forces and police who once more were called on to defend our freedoms with their lives. The threats of terror are more real for us today than yesterday, this week more than last. In so many ways Canada will not be the same.
That said, our faith and dependence is always in our Lord. May we be those whose lives demonstrate a heart of service and encouragement for all we meet. We must be those whose lives are marked by faith not fear.
This Sunday please take a moment to pray for our nation.
President of Associated Gospel Churches
