Ready, Set ....

After a session that went longer than some expected that it would, the Legislature recessed today.  The Premier will call the election on April 14 and British Columbians will go to the polls on May 12.  While every election is important, in light of the current global economic challenges, this election is more important than most. 

For most of the past 6 months, we have been working hard to develop a province wide prayer network that we've called PrayBC.  The vision is to simply ask God to use the election to accomplish His purposes for our province.  We know that prayer is the key that releases God's power on the earth.  We also know that as the Church assumes it's appropriate priestly role within our society, God is always eager to respond. 

Here's what it looks like and how you can be a part of this exciting opportunity to shape the future of our province:

1.  Join our email network.  For each day of the campaign, we will send an email to each member of the PrayBC network.  The email will contain a specific prayer focus, scripture verse and written prayer.  The email will be scheduled to come to your inbox by about 10 AM, or about the same time that most people get a coffee break.  You'll be able to pray along with us right at work or wherever you might be.  You can join our network by clicking here.  For more information on PrayBC watch our promo video.

2.  Participate in an event.  We have scheduled 4 prayer events for this campaign. 

     April 14 - Election Campaign Kick Off Prayer Meeting

3.  Share this with as many people as possible.  Our goal is for 10,000 people to join our network before the campaign concludes.  We need your help to get there.  Can we count on you?
