OTTAWA, August 29, 2003 ( – The Sanctity of Marriage Week demonstrations, set to take place at local Member of Parliament’s offices throughout the country on September 7 at 3pm, still require local organizers.  Those willing to volunteer to organize demonstrations in their local areas are asked to contact [email protected]   Where an organizer has been assigned at the MPs office prayer will be led by clergy.  At those locations where no clergy are in attendance, say the central organizers, attendees are asked to keep the following intentions in mind for prayer:  The Vote – Pray for God’s will to be worked out through the government vote on marriage that marriage will continue to be recognized as a man and woman only.  Your MP – Pray that God will work out His will in his/her political actions. Pray God’s grace and conviction upon the MPs.  Protection of Marriages – Pray that marriage may not only be preserved as heterosexual, one man one woman but that marriages across the nation be strengthened and protected.  The Nation of Canada – Pray for repentance as a nation for our apathy and lack of prayer and work to promote marriage as the holy institution it is.  Canada’s Churches – If the change to the definition of marriage goes through, our churches will soon be under pressure to marry other types of relationships. Pray for strength and courage to stand against these pressures. If marriage is not redefined, churches will still be called upon to defend marriage in the future.  See the Sanctity of Marriage website for further info:
