Leading Influence: A Website to help pray effectively for Canada and our politicians.
Watchmen: In the early 1990s, God put a burden of prayer for the nation of Canada upon a man by the name of Bob Birch. Pastor Bob and a handful of Godly men spent many years praying together with the mandate to “stand on guard” for Canada and to see a righteous inheritance established within the nation. This remnant grew from a few into many thousands of believers that longed to see their nation become a dwelling place for the Lord. This remnant of believers in
Canada walks together under the banner of Watchmen for the Nations. This grew to become a global prayer movement.
4 MY CANADA: 4MY CANADA stands for “For Motivated Young People for a Strong Canada”. They are a group of young leaders in Canada from many Christian perspectives that have a heart to walk in unity for a greater purpose: Seeing Canada make choices which will lead to a strong Canada for generations to come. They organize a variety of prayer initiatives surrounding government issues such as abortion, sex trafficking, elections and more.

Vision: We see a world where all persecuted Christians are remembered and supported within the body of Christ.
Mission: Glorifying God through serving His persecuted church, as we seek to fulfill the words of scripture:
“Remember the prisoners as if chainedHebrews 13:3
with them – those who are mistreated – since
you yourselves are in the body also.”
You will be inspired and moved as you read accounts of persecuted Christians around the world and receive specific prayer requests to support these brothers and sisters in the Lord
