Praying for our Cities & Boroughs
POPULATION: 19,324 MAYOR: Georges Bourelle
1. For the mayor, Georges Bourelle (and city councillors)
Father, we pray for the mayor, Georges Bourelle, and all city councillors, that they would know You and turn to You for Your counsel and wisdom to govern justly and honestly to Your glory and for the good of all the citizens of Beaconsfield; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
2. Continued engagement in environmental stewardship
Father, we give you thanks for the abundance of green spaces you have provided in Beaconsfield. We pray that the awesomeness and beauty of your creation will draw many hearts to You.
Lord Jesus, we pray that the Holy Spirit may bring a revival amongst the citizens of Beaconsfield — that He may strengthen the hearts of those that already know You, return those who have strayed, and draw those still lost, that they may all grow in grace and in the knowledge of You, our Lord and Saviour.
Meeting with the mayor, Mr Georges Bourelle, he was asked two questions: First, what do you love about your city? Second, how could West Island churches best pray for and support the city of Beaconsfield.
What he loves about Beaconsfield, like Baie D’Urfé, is the country charm so close to the city. He loves the green spaces, the neighbourhoods and the residential/community feel.
How to pray for Beaconsfield, according to the Mayor:
That issues with the agglomeration structure would be fairly resolved.
A deeper consciousness around climate change: That we’d be more aware and willing to take steps to reduce our footprint.
For elected officials, that they would do the best possible job for the residents. That God would give them wisdom and competence.
A greater love for our neighbours by better following the rules of the road: There are many concerned residents with people speeding and not making full stops in their neighbourhoods.
Mr. Bourelle was very open to working with churches and encourages the residents to connect with a local church. He also said that churches could support the West Island by creating a welcoming environments for all to find a sense of community.
VERSE OF THE WEEK
Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for the will of God.
1 Peter 4:1-2 (ESV)
Collect of the week
1st SUNDAY in Lent
O Lord, who for our sake fasted forty days and forty nights: Give us grace to use such abstinence, that, our flesh being subdued to the Spirit, we may ever obey your godly motions in righteousness and true holiness, to your honour and glory; who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, ages without end.
