“The level of prayer for the station has to rise across the city and region.” – Dianne van der Putten (Director of Marketplace Ministry)

dianneImagine hearing this message as clear as a voice in your heart, mind and spirit.  This happened two years ago during Sharathon and the message hasn’t changed.

We know that prayer is what moves mountains, and releases the plans and purposes of God when we’ve aligned ourselves with His will.  He receives all the glory and, praise God, we receive the joy.  This is our heart cry for the station, for this ministry and for the mission God has for us in the city of Ottawa, across the region and beyond.

We are humbly asking for you to join us in prayer for the station and particularly for the upcoming Sharathon on September 21 and 22.  Right now, would you rally your community groups, churches, friends and family, as well as businesses to be in prayer for CHRI?  We need an army of prayer warriors across this region lifting the station with one heart and purpose.  We have a huge financial goal for Sharathon of $75,000 to raise in two days and we need the moving of God in people’s hearts, releasing His provision and supply.   Truly, we believe that God is on the move at the station, across this city and beyond and is calling His people to petition Him for his heart.  What an honour and privilege it is to enter into His presence, sit under His shelter, bask in His love and pour out our hearts to Him.  He’s a good good Father and is calling us for such a time as this.  Join with us in prayer this month (and beyond), stay tuned during Sharathon as we give Him the glory for the great things He has done, and will do.  Be blessed and thank you!

When we know the many names of God, we have more reasons to trust Him.

names of GodOn June 22nd, CHRI’s Brock Tozer and Care Baldwin aired their final Wednesday Bookmark author interviews of the 2015-2016 season and are now taking a break for the summer to re-Air some of the “Best Of” the Wednesday Bookmark until September.

I AmCare’s final kids book is a Bible storybook/devotional that adults will find useful as well in their relationship with The Great ‘I Am’… “I Am: 40 Reasons to Trust God” (“I Am” image attached) explains the 40 names used to describe who God is and what He does. Imagine if we understood that God is “Jehovah Uzzi” (The Lord My Strength – Psalm 28:7) and turned to Him for strength, or if we remembered that He is “Jehovah Shalom” (The Lord is Peace – Judges 6:24) in our times of stress and anxiety?!

Print off this chart (below) to give to your kids OR to put in your Bible or on your wall so you can be constantly reminded of WHO God is and can call out His name(s) when you need Him!
