Saying our prayers – on TV

I was recently invited by Mel and Susan Finlay to do two interviews on the Christian TV program 100 Huntley St.  Mel and Susan are really fine people and lead in a superb ministry of prayer for Canadian leaders – you can read more about it here.  Instead of heckling or whining about our leaders, they want to simply follow the biblical injunction to pray for those in authority over us and are calling followers of Jesus to do that in non-partisan ways.  No fussing about specific issues or wrangling over party lines, just loving our leaders because that’s the Jesus way.  I love their conciliatory spirit and approach.

They’ve also taken a shine to my book Seeking God’s Face and recently interviewed me alongside an assortment of other Canadian leaders (I feel really humbled to be in that sort of company).  Below are two links to the interviews I did with them, if you want to check them out.

They were fun interviews to do – very grateful for the opportunity and the new friendship with them.

    Thanks Phil for your book. I make it a part of my devotions too. Love the promo from Susan that it’s now a best seller. Pretty great. I have recommended it to many in our church as well.
