Praise & Prayer

  • Pray for peace and harmony on the streets, as tensions rise, drug use increases and demon spirits run amok.

  • Pray for safety of all our front line workers and volunteers.  Not only from Covid, but also from mentally impacted anger infused outbursts.

  • Praise the Lord that three students at our Faith Learning Centre gave their lives to the Lord Jesus, two young ladies and one young man.  Hallelujah!

     

  • Pray for Sean.  Desperately lonely and troubled soul, missing for 12 months.  T UGM, many of our guests share heartfelt stories of friends and family whose whereabouts are unknown.  May 2021 provide reunion and answers.

     

  • Praise God for Polar Bear snow sculptor, Vinora Bennett, raising funds and bringing more public awareness to God’s work at UGM.  (We even got a mention on a U.S. Network T.V. station!)

John 5:5-6 “Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?” 

Have you ever asked yourself why Jesus asked this question to the lame man?  “Do you want to be made well?”  When we read the passage, we would think that the answer to this question would be obvious.  Of course, a lame man would want to be well!  You see Jesus never wanted to force his love or healing onto anyone.  He desires a relationship where His creation participate willingly.  

As I reflect on Jesus' question, I think of the ladies that we work with day in and day out.  Some say they want to be well and we see them strive every day to fight to be well.  Others say they want to be well, but the journey to become well feels too overwhelming to go on.  Others are so familiar with the state they are in, that the thought of being well just seems scary.  The question “do you want to be made well?” may seem obvious, but in reality, it is not.  Notice how the scripture points out that the man had already been in that condition a long time. Was there a familiarity?  The individuals that we serve sometimes have a familiarity with their condition, making it difficult to want or imagine their lives being different.  

The battle these women fight is a very real one with many spiritual components.  Satan would love for them to feel overwhelmed, or so familiar with the state that they are in that they do not have the drive to be well.  Those fighting addiction, poverty and even homelessness need constant prayer and reminders that Jesus wants them to be well.  Jesus's desire for them is to give them life, peace and love.  

Is there a situation in your life where you have become familiar with settling for less than your heavenly father wants for you?  Maybe you’re being robbed of the peace and joy that He desires to give you, or receiving the love that he has for you.  I would encourage you to claim the life He desires for you in Jesus Name.
