Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!
1 Chronicles 16:11

Rejoice always, 
pray without ceasing, 
give thanks in all circumstances; 
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Matters for prayer:
  • This weekend's youth retreat at Camp Cherith; for the Spirit to move and bring life-change into the lives of the youth and leaders participating  
  • Ongoing preparations for High Five July 11-15 (so much prep!) 
  • Interviews with our congregational care pastor candidate to be successful in leading us to the right person
  • The many who have been visiting Harvest over the past months to find their church home here and join in with the 4 W's 
  • Rest for our staff team over the summer months as they take time away
  • God's continued provision through the generous giving of his people 


Pray that every day our worship would come from sincere hearts filled with the understanding of the sacrifice that was made on our behalf. Pray that God would be honoured, glorified and blessed through our offering of praise to him. 

Listen to this Sunday's setlist.



As we look at Revelation 5 together on Sunday, pray for God to receive our worship and alter the course of our lives in light of who he is and what he has done for humanity in providing salvation through his Son, the Lamb of God. 


First Impressions

Pray for our volunteers and guests anticipating more downtime with their school-aged children or grandchildren. Families can be an essential support for people who serve often. They build lifestyles around their work for Christ and so we should pray for the blessing of rejuvenation and rest as we enter the summer months.


Small Groups

Small groups support fathers (and grandfathers) with a community that cares for them and challenges them toward godliness. Ask the Lord to help groups continue their encouragement of men in the various roles. Pray for men who struggle over Father's Day weekends and consider how God may use you to lift a man's spirit to the Lord this weekend.


Biblical Soul Care

Pray for those in our church who are walking alongside others in difficult circumstances. Pray that as they love and encourage their friends, they would themselves be reminded that in spite of whatever limitations or weaknesses they feel, God can use them to help accomplish his redemptive purposes (2 Corinthians 4:7).


Harvest Youth

Pray for our youth retreat this weekend! Pray that our students would be ready to remember God's faithfulness, to reflect daily on what he's done for us, and respond with complete commitment to him and his ways! Pray for safety, fun, deep meaningful relationships to develop, and for God to be glorified. Pray also for me and our small group leaders.


Children's Ministry

Harvest Kids: This Sunday we will teach our Harvest Kids that God is our everlasting Father. Pray that this truth sinks deep into the hearts of children and leaders, especially those without earthly fathers or those who have have difficult relationship with dads. May they find the peace and comfort that only God can offer. 

High Five Day Camp: Praise God for an incredible time of equipping and fellowship last Saturday. Pray that the Lord continues to work in the hearts of kids, families and volunteers as we prepare for a impactful week of camp.


Acts 29 Churches

PAX North Church (Halifax, Nova Scotia) - This church has been implementing a month-long prayer campaign for their neighbourhoods. This past week they have been handing our door knockers to let their neighbours know they have been praying for them and to invite them to a family fun day taking place this weekend. Pray that God would open doors in the community, that many new people would attend the event this weekend, and that through this campaign people would be drawn to Christ. 



Harvest Ayr (Scotland) invites us to join them in dependant, persistent and urgent prayer for God to build a church that is founded on his Word, faithful to him, glorifies him and where things happen that can only be explained by what God has done in response to the prayers of his people.
