All over Canada today, congregations took some special time to pray for elected officials. We can’t wait to hear the reports about how your church celebrated. It would be really great if you took a moment to send a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what happened in your locality.
In our home congregation – St. Alban’s Anglican Church, they also add a customary prayer for the nation of Canada on this Sunday every year. Here it is below…
“O God, who didst lead the fathers of our nation into this land of Canada,
and hast increased us by thy favour:
Grant, we beseech thee, that we who now enter into their inheritance,
may prove ourselves a people mindful of they mercies and ready to do they will;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.”
