You are in our thoughts and prayers as the nation and the world move through a most difficult time. We are particularly mindful of our older population and people with health vulnerabilities, and we entrust you to the Lord’s care.
While in prayer and reflection in the Word of God today, I was reminded of our Lord’s faithfulness over the years. In Scripture, we see over and over again how He watches over His people. Yes, He literally sees each one and understands each situation.
I can witness to the wonderfully indescribable presence of God at my side through really hard times over many years. Through life’s many challenges I have seen God prove Himself over and over again, as I’m sure you have as well.
Moving through this season, it will be no different. Our God is a faithful shepherd.
As we are confined to our homes, let’s acknowledge the Lord’s presence with us. We can ask Him to fill us with His peace, to cover us with His protection and to soak our inner being with the tender awareness of His deep love for each of us. He is Love, He speaks, and He is immensely personable—truly the ideal companion at a time like this.
We have implemented government recommendations for our office and staff. It changes how we go about the day but everything that needs to be attended to is cared for. We must continue with the work of reaching lost people with the Gospel. At this unique time, we are grateful to have the opportunity in Canada to place a message of life and hope in Christ directly into people’s homes. In fact, in the next two weeks, homes where approximately 750,000 people live will receive the Finding the Hope message with an invitation to respond.
Our phone lines are available and we are here to receive your prayer requests and any gifts you wish to give by phone through credit card at 1-800-265-7326, and online at ehc.ca/donate.
One of the greatest blessings given to any nation is to have a praying Church in its midst. Let’s come before our God on behalf of those who do not know where to turn. Let’s lay our nation and world at His feet, asking for an outpouring of His mercy and for healing where needed. Let’s also ask Him to reveal Himself to people everywhere at this very delicate time when many people’s hearts are more receptive. Let’s also ask Him for wisdom and protection of all health care workers and for decision makers.
Thank you for your partnership with EHC and FTH and for your continued care and prayer for us as a ministry and as individuals. Know that we are praying for you too!
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. (2 Corinthians 13:14)
Your brother in Christ Jesus, our Lord and Saviour,
President, Every Home for Christ International/Canada
