“Amazing God, our commissioners are under the crunch to complete all their preparations. Many will be travelling soon. We prayer for Your blessings upon their preparations and travels. Show them Your favour as they make their way to Oshawa. Bless the organizers as they too hurry about to get all the final details ready. Grant them wisdom and focus so nothing is forgotten.

In 5 days all that people have worked toward will begin. Show Your presence to them, Lord. Guide them and guard their hearts. Give them the boldness we read about in Frederick Buechner article, the boldness to pray for Your will!

God, we thank You for Your love, for Your grace and for Your Son, in Whose name we pray. Amen.”
