Prayer at Northend Church

“Prayer is God’s plan to supply man’s great and continuous need with God’s great and continuous abundance.” E. M. Bounds.

At Northend Church, we acknowledge our great need for God and our great need to connect with Him in prayer. “…for tremendous power is released through the passionate, heartfelt prayer of a godly believer! ” James 5:16  Having surrendered our lives to Jesus Christ, as we open our hearts to God in prayer, we can expect to meet with God, to experience His presence, and to hear His voice. As we do, God’s word tells us that our prayers are powerful and produce results. It is an awesome privilege to partner with Him in prayer.

We at Northend Church value times of seeking His presence together. We value the power of the Spirit of God that is released as we stand in faith on the word of God and come into agreement in prayer. We value the work of the Holy Spirit in our midst as we seek Him, trusting He will direct us to fulfill His kingdom assignments in our daily lives, and in ministry, and in seeing His kingdom be manifest here on earth, through us, as it is in heaven. We greatly appreciate your prayers!

Prayer Ministries:

Change, growth, and a harvest is not reaped by human hands. We know and acknowledge that in everything we do, it must be through Him. He is the Source of our healing, our Refuge when the earth crumbles away, the One who is worthy of our praise.

Our prayer ministry meets regularly. If you would like the link to join, please email Nicole at prayer@northendchurch.ca. You can also sign up to receive our monthly newsletter HERE.

Additionally, you can submit a prayer request anytime by going to our Prayer page. All requests are held confidential and prayed over by our Prayer team.

In April we participated in a day for Prayer + Fasting as a church family. We would like to take that same idea and follow a week of Prayer + Fasting together. This will start on May 10 and conclude with an evening prayer service on Sunday, May 16th.

Every day there will be a post that will include a focused prayer. You can find the posts on our blog or on our Facebook page. We also want to encourage you to consider what you could fast from for this week. Think of something that would be mentally or physically hard to give up, it doesn’t have to be big, but it should be something that creates a space in your life. Then you should work on filling that space with prayer, meditation, bible study, or other ways of sharpening your faith.

Here are some things as a church that we will be praying about.

For our Church:  Our staff and ministry leaders. The selection of the right additions to our leadership team, spiritual vitality of our congregation, and that we will be committed to staying on the lifelong journey of being a disciple of Jesus.

For our City: Let’s pray for our mayor and politicians to recognize Christ Jesus as Lord. Pray that in addition to our Food Bank we will know how to be vibrant representatives of our Savior to our city. This could mean new initiatives, but we need the specific leading of the Lord for this.

For our Country: Let’s continue to pray for relief and an end to the Covid pandemic. Let’s pray for our Prime Minister and ruling government that they will not stifle our religious freedoms. Pray that Northend will have an impact in our country through our media and online presence, but also through the witness that we have as a local church. We want to ask the Lord to develop our missions outreach to sustain and bless ministries that are reaching out to all of Canada.

For Courage: Pray that we will be bold in the Lord so we would live out and speak out the Hope of the Gospel that we have in Christ. Pray for courage to pray for the sick and in faith to ask that signs and wonders would accompany the preaching of God’s word and the testimony of Northend Church. Pray that the Holy Spirit would come in renewing power in our personal lives and church life so that we would know his tangible presence.

“And when two or three of you are together because of Me, you can be sure I’ll be there.” Matthew 18:20

There is power released as we agree together in prayer….so during this time where our world is experiencing lockdown… let’s breakout and gather together (by Zoom) as a church family as we invite the Spirit of God to help us pray for all that is happening in the world, as well as our needs, and the needs of those around us. Join us Wednesday, April 28th at 7:00 pm

Ways to engage in prayer

1. Personal Prayer Ministry

Life, in general, can be difficult in the best of times, even more so in these trying times we all find ourselves in. We want you to know that we are here if you need to talk, and certainly would love to pray with you. If you would like to book an appointment for one-on-one prayer, please email Pastor Nicole at prayer@northendchurch.ca.

2. Corporate Prayer

We gather regularly for times of prayer as a church family.  This may be a weeknight gathering (over Zoom if necessary) or a Sunday evening, so keep an eye on our Events page for what’s coming next. Come add strength and be encouraged as we agree in prayer together to see God move in response to our cry before Him on behalf of ourselves and others. Feel free to join us when you can.

3. Healing Prayer Session

Are you having trouble dealing with issues of life? Wanting to go deeper in the things of God but feel like there may be obstacles holding you back? Consider a Healing Prayer session. This is a time saturated in prayer where the presence of God can gently, and lovingly bring things to light. This prayer time can help bring healing and greater freedom to your life. These sessions are 60 to 90 minutes in length and are led by Pastor Nicole, our prayer pastor, and a trained prayer team.

For more information, please contact Nicole at prayer@northendchurch.ca.

4. Submit a prayer request and/or a praise report!


1 John 5:14-15 The Passion Translation “Since we have this confidence, we can also have great boldness before him, for if we present any request agreeable to his will, he will hear us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we also know that we have obtained the requests we ask of him.”

Please don’t forget to share your answers to prayer. We’d love to celebrate with you and give God all the glory!
