Prayer and Worship in the City


Over the past three months I’ve been rubbing shoulders with men and women of God with a heart to gather Christians of our city for prayer and worship. We have formed the VOICES TOGETHER planning team, with a call to the Church to unite on Canada Day – July 1st – at Rogers Arena.  It is exciting to see leaders and pastors from key churches pray for God to visit our city in a fresh, new way.

We plan to meet together on Sunday May 19th, 5-7 PM, at First Baptist Church, Vancouver for a time of prayer for our city and our country.

Join us as we pray and prepare for July 1st.

    Dear Dwayne

    That was a tremendous event to see so many churches gathered together to glorify the name of Jesus and to hear the Word of God read and preached.

    I would like to express a concern, that is that we seemed to be united together with the Roman Catholic church. As far as I know they don’t have the same basis of salvation, but they add to the gospel their own works and the priest proclaims that eating the bread brings salvation to the people. Paul had strong words for anyone proclaiming another gospel. Anyone who does that is not on the same page and is far from God -assursed is a very strong word. I fear that by having them up on stage, we are saying something, but is it the right thing? Are we trying to roll back history by our human effort of unity? God says, “Come out from among them and be separate.” We must proclaim the gospel to our dear Roman Catholic friends. Some may be “saved, but if they are, they should not sit under false doctrine.

    I do hope that we are not welcoming Roman Catholic missions at Missions Fest either. As sincere as they are, we must be confident that the doctrine is right that that they are not just saying the words but with a different meaning. I went through this one year when I was on a pastoral care team in a hospital only to discover later that we really weren’t on the same page.

    Another concern: There was absense of the word “sin” tonight. We need to pray that Canada will repent of compromise and straying from the Word of God. When we truly repent, God will hear from heaven. There was an absence of proclaiming the blood of Jesus, though it was in in the songs, for which I was thankful. Even though I have heard it time and again, I love to hear the gospel proclaimed again and our foundation proclaimed, not assumed.

    Thank you so much for working to help put on such an event. I do hope that these issues can be resolved in the next events. Let me know how I can be of help.
