Canadian Churches Unite To Sing ‘The Blessing’ During The Pandemic

To bring the churches across Canada together, congregations from B.C. to the Maritimes united together to worship and bless each other with a performance of ‘The Blessing.’


‘The Blessing,’ was co-written by Steven Furtick, Chris Brown, Kari Jobe, and Cody Carnes earlier this year and has been sung by many during these uncertain times of the pandemic.

The churches across Canada extended an invitation to churches in every province and territory and nearly 200 individuals responded and took part and participated.

“As the world has come together in a time of crisis, the church has united in prayer and worship to bless our communities around the world in the Name of Jesus,” text in the video reads to preface the performance.

“With one voice, this is our prayer over Canada.”

The video was shared by The Blessing – Canada, where about 127 churches participated in the powerful worship.

Worship leaders from Grant Memorial Church, My Church Winnipeg, and Faith Covenant Church represented Winnipeg congregations in the performance, along with Plum Coulee’s Rosemary Siemens.

This may be the most moving video yet. Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes wrote a beautiful song and your collective voices gave it to the world.The song is wonderful but the coming together of these voices from all across Canada is one of my greatest blessings. Thank you to each of you and for giving an old man in Texas a most beautiful way to start his day. Peace.

Beautiful! Loved hearing this from Canada—we lived in Ajax, Ontario as ex-pats for four years—great memories!
