Campus Ministry
CANADA
More than two million young adults are currently enrolled in a Canadian college or university, some via online courses and some in-person. Continue to pray that the hearts of unreached students and leaders will be open to encountering God. Pray that those who were raised in Christian families will not wander away from the foundation of faith in their lives, and will be strengthened and empowered to demonstrate or share their faith with those they encounter. Pray for meaningful connections between Christian leaders and university/college administrators, and between mentors and students engaged in campus ministry throughout Canada, including those serving with the PAOC SERVE Campus Network. Pray also that God will guide all of the students in their studying as they approach exam time.


Murray & Cindy Cornelius
INTERNATIONAL OFFICE
Pray that God will bless Murray and Cindy with creativity, wisdom, direction and new strategies as they minister to the more than 340 global workers, serving in 70 countries. Pray that God will prompt more people to become global workers and open opportunities for them to bring life transforming hope. Pray also for an abundance of financial blessings to support God’s mission through all of the global workers ministering in various countries throughout the world.


WORLDWIDE
Please continue to pray for God’s intervention in the spread of the coronavirus, which has infected more than 71,351,695, and killed nearly 1,612,375 people around the world.1 Pray for healing for those stricken with COVID-19, and comfort for those whose loved ones have passed away. May God continually strengthen and protect frontline and essential workers. Pray that, as many countries are easing some restrictions, their economies will respond well. Pray for people to have continued diligence in wearing masks, washing hands, and physical distancing whenever possible, so that the spread is limited wherever the virus is present. Pray for protection and provision for people in developing countries who are malnourished and more vulnerable to this disease. Pray also for PAOC global workers who are remaining in the countries where they have been called to minister, and who are continuing to serve their communities with excellence during this pandemic.
