NHOP, check (Happy Canada Day)

31. Visit the National House of Prayer

This seems to be the year of random dreams and goals happening with no prior planning. Today being Canada Day, it seemed a good time to write about my visit to the National House of Prayer in Ottawa a week and a half ago.

I made the trip up to meet with a pastor in Cuba, whom our church has been connected to since I first went to the country last spring. Our rendezvous point was NHOP, where we had a tour and had lunch with the couple who runs the centre. There are interns and groups from all over the country who stay there, visiting Parliament Hill, the MPs, and learning to pray for our government. I’ve wanted to check it out ever since I went to the U.S. house of prayer in Washington.

It was great to see an organization so passionate about making a positive difference in our country, by networking and blessing those in authority – not with angry protests or negative attacks.

I’m so thankful to live in a nation of religious freedom, of prosperity, of health and resources and incredible beauty. What a blessing to be able to call myself a Canadian.

Happy Canada Day.
