Lethbridge pastor weighs in on National Day of Prayer

May 7, 2020

Bridge City News heard from a local pastor about the significance of the National Prayer Breakfast for Canada.

The 55th annual National Prayer Breakfast of Canada took place Thursday morning in Ottawa. It is a Christ centred event held by the Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast Group. This year because of COVID-19, it was held virtually with people across Canada tuning in. The purpose of the long running event is for Christians to come together collectively to celebrate the love of God. It allows for elected officials to gather together with men and women from different backgrounds to pray and connect through faith.

Lethbridge pastor Daniel Zopoula of Miz City Church spoke about the power of prayer.

"One of the most important things when it comes to prayer for me is intersession — praying on behalf of somebody else on behalf of the nation. God hears our prayer, and when God hears our prayer he heals nations".

The National Day of Prayer is an annual day of observance held annually, on the first Thursday of May.
