I Prayed have prayed
Lord God, we pray for freedom in Canada and in the U.S. to say no to medical procedures.

From The Daily Wire: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act on Monday in an effort to crack down on protesters that have shut down parts of Ottawa and various border crossings with the U.S.

Trudeau informed his cabinet and Canada’s premiers of his intent Monday morning. The prime minister’s announcement marks the first time the act, which replaced the War Measures Act in 1988, has been employed…

The Emergencies Act powers will “strengthen” law enforcement’s ability to fine and imprison protesters, according to the prime minister. The act will be enforced most heavily in areas of “critical infrastructure” such as airports and border crossings. Trudeau said that the act also ensures “essential services” such as towing away trucks used to blockade roads and highways.

“In addition, financial institutions will be authorized and directed to render essential services to help address the situation including by regulating and prohibiting the use of property to fund or support illegal blockades,” Trudeau added…

Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s finance minister, later said that banks and other financial institutions in Canada have the authority to “temporarily cease providing financial services where the institution suspects that an account is being used to further the illegal blockades and occupations. This order covers both personal and corporate accounts.”

Crowd-funding platforms, which protesters have used to sustain their weeks-long demonstrations, would fall under the enforcement of “Canada’s anti-money laundering and terrorist financing rules,” Freeland said.

“These changes cover all forms of transactions,” she said. “The illegal blockades have highlighted the fact that crowd-funding platforms and some of the payment service providers they use are not fully captured under the proceeds of the Crime and Terrorist Financing Act.

The Emergencies Act defines an emergency as a situation “seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians and is of such proportions or nature as to exceed the capacity or authority of a province to deal with it.”

Protesters with the “Freedom Convoy” have shut down parts of downtown Ottawa for roughly three weeks over restrictive COVID-19 measures and vaccine mandates. Convoy organizer Tamara Leach said earlier on Monday that protesters will continue to “hold the line” against the Canadian government’s crackdown.

““Remember things that happened at the beginning, long ago — that I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me.”
‭‭Yesha ‘yahu (Isa)‬ ‭46:9‬ ‭CJB‬‬

“Woe to those who think up evil and plan wickedness as they lie in bed. When morning comes, they do it, since they have it in their power. They covet fields and seize them; they take over houses as well, doing violence to both owner and house, to people and their inherited land. Therefore this is what Adonai says: “Against this family I am planning an evil from which you will not withdraw your necks; nor will you walk with your heads held high, for it will be an evil time.””
‭‭Mikhah (Mic)‬ ‭2:1-3‬ ‭CJB‬‬

“for they intended evil against you; but despite their scheme, they won’t succeed.”

Father, Caesar wanted to be deified, pharaoh wanted to be deified. You’re still God and they’re not. Despite evil intentions, save merciful God! They don’t understand what awaits them. Save! Turn hearts back to You!

In Jesus’ name, Amen!

My Great God, my creator, and maker; Father this is your land, the earth is your footstool, and all that is in it are you sons and daughters. Your will be done in this gathering of people who are voicing their concern. Dear Lord, you gave us a voice, may we be heard , when presenting our feelings and rights when oppressed ad treated unjustly. I beseeched you Father, to send your angers and see to the safety of these demonstrators, may each of these reach the minds and hearts of our leaders about their injustice in our land. In Christ name, amen

Wow, “exceed the provinces’ ability to deal with it.” Really! The only thing they have to do to “deal with it” is to stop taking their liberty & drop the mandates!! Thank you Lord for exposing the tyranny in the hearts of many leaders! May they be stripped of their power to oppress the people!!

    Wow! What a fascist!

    How heart-wrenching.

    Praying protection for all the people in Canada from this out-of-control Leftist totalitarian state, in Jesus’ Mighty Name.

      Ooops, sorry, Toni, I did not mean to put my comment under yours; I hit the wrong button, I guess.

      But I’m praying in agreement with you and all the others here!

Isaiah 10:1 Woe to those who enact unjust statutes and issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of fair treatment and withhold justice from the oppressed of My people,
Isaiah 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so My ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.

Dear Heavenly Father, You know how this protest needs to end but I don’t believe this is the way. I pray You will impress Your will on the hearts of everyone involved. Your way is good and just. Your way is right and true. I pray Your way will influence the protesters as well as the government officials. May the solution be Yours. I ask this in the Perfect Name of Jesus. I ask this in the Unquenchable Power of the Holy Spirit. I ask this for Your Glory Lord. Amen
