A #heartbeatprayer from the Diocese of Ottawa

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for your church. We raise our heartfelt prayer for the church to you. Please help our still-fragile 3-point parish thrive, and grow! We pray that attendance and volunteerism at our small rural churches would increase, that young families would join and find value in Christian education, and that respect among people would grow. Help us to make disciples of the next generation.

Inspire us, Lord, to always live a life of faith in your mission, not ours, not dollars, not politics, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
