Pray for Every Nation: Canada

As evangelizing Christians, we tend to focus more on reaching third-world countries and cultures foreign to us than we do our own neighborhoods and communities. Canada may not seem like a desperate mission field according to our "standards", but just because Canadians speak English, eat similar food, and have become our role model for socialized health care, does not mean evangelism and discipleship are unnecessary!

Both my husband and my sister have been involved in various ministries in Quebec, and they would tell you there is a great need for the gospel. Depravity is not limited to poverty stricken nations. In fact, sometimes it is more prevalent in what we label "advanced" cultures.

Here are some specific ways you can pray for the country of Canada:

1. Pray for God's current ministers of the gospel to continue with perseverance and strength. 
2. Pray God will mobilize Christians around the world to reach this country for Him. 
3. Pray that this nation will not be forgotten.
