Know that God loves you. He loves you enough that He gave His only Son for your salvation. And that Son, Jesus, took stripes for your healing. God gave you the best gift of all…Eternal Life! Prayer does change things. Won’t you commit to some quality time with Him today?



The love that God has for you is far beyond our human comprehension. Jesus prayed, ‘’My prayer for all of them (the disciples and believers of all ages) is that they will be of one heart and mind, just as You and I are, Father… I in them and You in Me, all being perfected into one – so that the world will know You sent Me and will understand that You love them as much as You love Me’’.

Think of it! God loves you as much as He loves His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus. What a staggering, overwhelming truth to comprehend! You need have no fear of someone who loves you perfectly. You need never to be reluctant to trust God with your entire life for He truly loves you.

Prayer for Today
Almighty and everliving God, Whose Son Jesus Christ healed the sick and restored them to wholeness of life, look with compassion on the anguish of the world, and by Your power make whole all peoples and nations; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Who is alive and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Prayer for our Church family
Father God, You desire peace and unity and encouragement for our body of believers. Help us, Lord, to pursue what makes for peace and for building one another up. Give us discerning hearts to know Your will and give us the courage to be obedient. Lord, we know that without You and Your Holy Spirit indwelling each one of us, we cannot do any of these things. But, with You and for Your glory, grant our church family peace and unity. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

This year a group of Slovenian Christian women is inviting the world to “Come to the Table – Everything is Ready” You, your family and your friends are invited to join us, and 1,200 communities across Canada, for the World Day of Prayer 2019.

The World Day of Prayer grew from an ecumenical day of prayer organized by women in Canada and the United States in 1920. This event became the international World Day of Prayer in 1922 and Christians around the world began celebrating this event on the first Friday of March.
