UNITED STATES

Pray for the community of the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and all who have been impacted by tragedy on Saturday (October 27). During a baby naming ceremony, a man shot and killed 11 people and wounded six others, including four police officers who were responding to the shooting. Pray for God’s comfort and physical and emotional healing for the people who survived the shooting and for the families and friends of those killed. Pray also for everyone to experience God’s peace, and for opportunities for the gospel to spread, so that many people will find comfort and hope in Christ.

 

ALBERTA & NORTHWEST TERRITORIES DISTRICT

Pray for the student leaders and youth pastors attending the Vivid Student Leadership Conference on November 3 at Vanguard College in Edmonton, Alberta. May they be equipped, encouraged and empowered as their leadership skills are developed and sharpened. Ask God to inspire and encourage them as they connect with one another and with Him. May God also use what they learn to help them grow and partner with Jesus in building His kingdom.

 

SASKATCHEWAN DISTRICT

Pray for the youth who will be attending “Engaged in Missions,” the youth retreat being held at Westside Pentecostal Church in Saskatoon, from November 2 to 3. May they have opportunities to connect with one another, build relationships, and experience life-changing moments with Jesus Christ. May they also learn about God’s love for them and how to deepen their faith throughout the weekend, and find their place in God’s mission in Canada and the world.

 

WESTERN ONTARIO DISTRICT

The Momentum Junior High Convention titled “Plunge” is taking place this upcoming weekend (November 2 to 3) at The Meeting House in Oakville, Ontario. Pray that the youth attending will have powerful encounters with God, engage in passionate worship and experience life-changing teaching sessions. Pray that God will prompt many youth to attend, and that He will remove any obstacles to their attendance. Pray that many seeds will be planted in these young people’s hearts and that their lives and their families’ lives will be impacted for eternity. Pray also for the speaker and musical worship team as they prepare for their time together.

 

EASTERN ONTARIO & NUNAVUT DISTRICT

Pray for all the children and student ministries pastors and leaders who will be attending “Dream,” the Initiate Leadership Conference at Calvary Church in Peterborough, Ontario, from November 2 to 3. May they be inspired, engaged and refreshed as they learn how to improve their leadership skills. May God bless them with wisdom and help them to look at their ministries with a fresh perspective. Pray also that they will build deep connections with each other as they share ideas with one another on how to make an even greater impact in the lives of children and youth for the kingdom.
