PrayBC Anounces Prayer Campaign for Municipal Election

What would happen if we asked God to use our current and upcoming elections for His purposes and plans? Over the next 8 months, British Columbians will elect leaders at every level of government. I see a tremendous opportunity for the church to shape the future of our communities and province simply by giving ourselves to prayer in a strategic way.

Over the past number of months, we have developed a strategic prayer strategy for the upcoming civic and provincial elections. Our vision is to establish an effective and strategic prayer network across BC that will pray without bias or prejudice for God’s will, direction, and purposes to be accomplished during the municipal and provincial elections.

Our goal is to see God use the municipal and provincial elections for His purposes in communities all across BC.

Our hope is to partner with churches, prayer groups and other prayer organizations to establish a prayer network that will be linked together to pray through the use of email and the PrayBC website. Each participant will receive a daily email with a specific prayer focus, scripture verse and prayer points for each day of the campaign. We want to make it easy for people to participate in this initiative so we have designed the emails so that it will take no more than just a few minutes to read through the email and pray along with many others all across the province.

We will run our campaign for the municipal election from October 15 to November 16. Our intent is to send periodic updates as we build towards the Provincial election. We will launch the Provincial prayer campaign on same day that the election is called and will conclude it on the day after Election Day. By that point we are hoping for a Provincial Prayer Network of 10,000 people.

I’m writing to enlist your help with this project. This is an ‘opt-in’ email initiative. Our commitment is that we won’t be using this list for anything other than the prayer campaigns that I’ve just outlined for you, but you won’t receive the daily email unless you register. I believe that we can have a tremendous effect on the upcoming elections and consequently on the years to come just because we pray now. First of all, REGISTER to participate in this incredible opportunity yourself.

Then forward this page to pastors, prayer group leaders, ministry leaders and ministerial group leaders asking them to participate as well.

I can hardly wait to see what God will do with this...
