While the values of this country are diminished day by day,
may we lift your standard higher, to show the only way.
~
Make us a lighthouse on the sea, drawing souls to faith in thee.
And in your strength help us to stand, against attacks throughout this land.
Lord, shine the light of your salvation, in the hearts across our nation.
Lord, we pray for Canada, and your blessings from above.
~
While folks claim their rights and freedoms,
lives are crushed beneath sins waves.
May we sound a warning siren, and tell them Jesus saves.
~
Make us a lighthouse on the sea, drawing souls to faith in thee.
And in your strength help us to stand, against attacks throughout this land.
Lord, shine the light of your salvation, in the hearts across our nation.
Lord, we pray for Canada, and your blessings from above.
~
As we beam the gospel message, shining hope and grace on lives,
may they reach out for the lifeline, that they may come to Christ.

Make us a lighthouse on the sea, drawing souls to faith in thee.
And in your strength help us to stand, against attacks throughout this land.
Lord, shine the light of your salvation, in the hearts across our nation.
Lord, we pray for Canada, and your blessings from above.

As we pray for Canada, may revival start with us.

Every day, the values of our country are increasingly eroded. Immoral groups push for their rights, while the rights and freedoms of believers continue to be infringed upon. More and more children grow up without ever hearing about Jesus Christ. As the darkness of sin spreads across our nation, we as a body of believers have the responsibility to shine the light of the gospel through that darkness, in our own city, and across this country. We pray that God will continue to give us opportunities to spread his word, as he draws the lost to his saving grace.

Isaiah 62:10 Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the father, but by me.
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
