In our ongoing coverage of other national prayer ministries, let us introduce you to the Canadian Convention of Southern Baptists. (www.ccsb.ca) Now many of you know Baptists, and especially Southern Baptists as having a passion for missions, evangelism and church planting. That is one of their strengths. But in our experience they also firmly believe in prayer.
I can remember leading a group of them a number of months ago on a prayer walk from the steps of the Supreme Court onto Parliament Hill and being encouraged about their burden for our nation and its government. At that time I had met Glenna Heidt who coordinates their prayer network across the country.
Recently we got reaquainted at a national prayer leaders’ retreat and she mentioned that they take our regular prayer requests for government and put them out in their own emial newsletter. I thought “That’s nice.” Then she told me that it reaches 40,000 people around the world who pray for Canada! Talk about broad-casting.
Glenna also is the prayer coordinator for Pray Vancouver. They have a full service website that we highly recommend for those of you in that area. Check it out at www.prayvancouver.ca.
