Our Parish: Norbert, Martin, Haydn, our Priests. Dave, Andy, Sean, Bernard, our Wardens.

Prayer Points for the Election
Voter Turnout: Pray that Canadians will come out and vote in great numbers. Ask the Lord to strengthen us against political apathy and disappointments. Ask God to stir Christians to allow their voices and values to be heard through voting.
Polls and Surveys: Pray that Canadians will cast informed ballots, looking beyond the polls and surveys as their primary source of information or guidance on how they should vote.
Righteous Leaders: Pray that the leaders we elect will be people of righteous character, competent to lead with conviction, that will not be swayed by the fear of man or the lure of power. Pray that our elected representatives would stand for values that are foundational for a healthy society to flourish.
Pray for Life: Pray that as Canadians we would come under a Spirit of repentance and that we would value all life in Canada, especially the young, the old and the sick. Pray that God would heal our land.
Pray against Any Corruption of our Voting System: As people make their way to the polling stations, pray that last minute attempts to pressure or sway people will be kept at bay. Pray also that there would be no outside interference in how Canadians vote either through social media, internet hacking, or ballot tampering.
Lord, help us to understand that as citizens we must engage to effect change. Thank You Lord for the amazing privilege we have to partner with You on behalf of Canada; we choose; He appoints; and we must honour those in authority. ~ 1Peter 2:13
