Happy 142nd - Canada!!

Today is Canada Day - the celebration of Canada's 142nd birthday. This scenic version of our national anthem comes from the Mother Corp.




"O Canada" is actually a hymn with the second verse a prayer.



Speaking of prayer, Rev. Rob Parker of Canada's National House of Prayer spoke in our church last Sunday. He told of the beautiful former Ottawa convent that now houses this prayer movement's headquarters. As a result of the National House of Prayer initiatives there are now people praying in the gallery of the House of Commons every time the House is in session. How encouraging is that!

Thanks for posting that Violet. Is that the David Foster version in the video?

Thanks Laura!

I don't know which version this is. Could be the Foster one...

Violet, I came here through finding your name on the BlogCritics site.(http://tinyurl.com/lyx77a) You wrote an insightful and well-written review of my latest suspense novel, EXPOSURE. I appreciate your thoughts very much. Kudos to you for the review--and many thanks.

I'm not sure how he did it, or where he found all the verses, but the President of FEBCC (my fellowship of churches) sang a whole bunch of verses of our National Anthem over the intercom at the office on Canada a few years ago. He happens to be an American and, at that point a newcomer. He was trying hard to make us feel comfortable with having a boss who wasn't Canadian. I was very impressed (more so because he has a great voice.)

O Canada, we stand on guard—even from a long distance.
