Canada Vacation & Prayer Drive

DSC_0478 (2)God who made the world and everything…..himself gives to all mankind life and breath.  He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of earth, having determined allotted periods and boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he  is actually not far from each one of us for ‘In him we live and move and have our being’. Acts 17:24-28DSC_0551

The Lord of heaven and earth is the source of life of  every person, the source of the very historical and geographical aspect of every nation. He spread the people and nations across the face of the earth and commissioned us to go with the message of the gospel. DSC_0542 (2)We began to go to the nations and undertake prayer drives because of His instructions “Go walk through the length and breadth of the land for I give it to you”. “Ask of me I will give you the nations as your inheritance and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession”.

DSC_0661We drove to Canada for a vacation and felt that God has already set a stage by revealing Himself  through His beautiful creation and His wonderful people spread far and wide across Canada. We needed to just pray, that they should know Him.

DSC_0504Passing through the gates at the country’s boarder to enter into the city of Toronto, we built a highway of prayer for that great city, remembering its leaders, Canada Prayer Drive 1educational institutions corporations, infrastructure, public offices and also for the people that they will know Him. John 17:3. We drove and sailed through north eastern states of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Quebec, Ontario and came back home covering over 4000 miles.

Starting from our home in Richmond, we prayed for the cities and metros, of Washington DC, Baltimore, New York, Boston, Sydney, St Anthony, Quebec city, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Niagara falls, Buffalo etc., and remembered that God is concerned about the cities, its people and even livestock as written in Jonah 4:11.

We arrived at St. Anthony, Newfoundland and saw the magnificent the ice bergs. DSC_0422

We went on a boat DSC_0449tour and listened to the marine scientist expressing concern over global warming, about polar bears swimming and floating on ice and landing in Newfoundland. We prayed on conservation and global warming and for the fisher folk that live along the coast of St Anthony.

DSC_0564 (2)We prayed at the one time nation’s Legislative Building at Quebec city remembering the leaders and people of the state of  Quebec and abroad a ferry, remembering the people of the beautiful city of  Quebec.

A stately building in Montreal. Looking like a watch tower; reminding us of God calling us to be watchmen on the walls. Isaiah 62:6-7

The gospel will be proclaimed to every nation, tribe, people and language and are seen present before the throne; so is said of the people groups of the world in the book of Revelation.

DSC_0660 (2)We passed through Parliament Hill, the political and cultural heart of the city of Ottawa, the beautiful street  with Gothic style structures and banners. We prayed for the public offices, for the Prime Minister and the Queen and the heads of all the states of Canada.

We drove to Niagara Falls and remembered that very person in the city and prayed for all the tourists who visit the natural wonder from across the boarders of United States and Canada
