Prayer Opportunities

Prayer Ministry

As we minister to hundreds of children youth and their families, we need committed prayer warriors to lift up the needs of the ministry. Please join with us in praying for God’s Kingdom to come here in Winnipeg’s inner city.

Current (updated March 31, 2021):

  • Wisdom & creativity during COVID-19: We want to make the most of every opportunity present during the pandemic, respecting guidelines, but continuing to reach into the lives of children, teens, and families wherever possible. Please also join us in praying for the end of COVID-19.
  • Facility: We are in need of a new building or major renovations at 600 Burnell. We also hope that the family of squirrels who have taken up accommodations in the attic will be able to find a new place.

Ongoing:

  • Staffing needs: That we would receive qualified applicants for our summer and year-round positions.
  • Volunteer needs: That God would send the workers into the harvest to minister to children, youth, and families.
  • Provision: For staff salaries, program needs, facility costs, vehicle fleet upgrade and maintenance needs, and camp construction needs.
  • Unity: A strong, unified staff as we serve together to build God’s kingdom.
