Rev. David R. Wells, General Superintendent,
The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada
"Patricia Bryan is a colleague in ministry I have had the privilege of working with to equip and enhance the prayer ministries of churches and leaders in our Pentecostal fellowship. Pat assisted me when I served as a District Superintendent to meet with prayer leaders to develop the key principles and practices for churches and ministries with healthy prayer ministries. These were shared nationally, accompanied by a call for our fellowship to 'prayer every day'... She has developed teaching and resources that effectively equip the church to genuinely be 'houses of prayer'."
Rev. Andrew Lamme, Lead Catalyst Ontario,
Church Planting, North American Mission Board (NAMB)
I have always found my time in prayer with Pat to be a time of refreshment and encouragement to me personally and to my ministry that God has entrusted to me. Pat is sensitive to the Spirit's leading as she prays and is wise in her discernment of how and what to share as she prays with others.
God has used Pat in incredible ways for helping support the leaders that she is praying for. I am honoured to have her as a Prayer Warrior in my life and I have grown to trust her implicitly.
Rev. Harvey Trauter,
Vision360 (Power to Change)
"...Pat has been our Prayer Catalyst for Vision360 and has provided leadership over Toronto and Vancouver as we have sought to set up Prayer Catalysts for each city. Pat is a woman of character, compassion, grace, excellence, faith and faithfulness. She is a good listener and has provided sound counsel and encouragement. She has been very trustworthy in any information given and proven to be a confidante in any delicate or highly confidential matters...
Pat also has a very powerful and accurate prophetic ministry. She has been able to see in the Spirit those things, which we have been coming against, potential threats and warnings in regards to staff and ministries. She has also used this gift to encourage and exhort myself and other members of our team. I have had the utmost confidence in Pat when communicating with any of our team members."
Dr. Aileen Van Ginkel, Vice-President,
Ministry Services, The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada
"...Beyond the tangible, material outcomes of Patricia's time with us, I wish to draw attention to the role that she played in supporting a number of us in prayer and discernment at various times...She has been a welcome 'listening ear,' and has addressed key issues with clear insight and understanding. Her personal prayer support has been invaluable to me."
Rev. Thomas Spiridigliozzi,
Christian Life Assembly
"...I want to affirm Patricia’s spiritual gifting. She is anointed prophetically and apostolically with an ability to teach biblical principles. She has laid essential foundations through her apostolic calling and with the gift of discernment in hearing the voice of God she has been able to edify individuals and the church body prophetically. Her discernment has also benefited myself as a pastor in regard to direction of the church and ministry. We have been tremendously blessed with Patricia’s equipping heart to see the church fulfill its vision and be spiritually protected by strategic prayer covering..."
Rev. Lance Naylor, Lead Pastor,
CLA, Barriere, B.C.
"Pat Bryan led Christian Life Assembly through a wonderful weekend emphasis on Prayer, that revived and refreshed each and every one of our people.
Pat's sensitivity to our local needs and the leading of the Holy Spirit rekindled a passion for more of Jesus and His presence. Her capable and competent giftings were in evidence as the Holy Spirit ministered mightily through her to bring encouragement and hope.
I would certainly recommend Pat's ministry to you.
God Bless you Pat and Ross in your ministry together."
Rev. Barry Buzza, Past President Foursquare Canada
Lead Pastor, Northside Foursquare Church, Coquitlam, B.C.
Just a quick note to say "Thank you".
Pat, the other night you spoke at our Northside Elders meeting and I was so impressed with how "right on" your message was. Our church is sensing that God is up to something new and exciting in the arena of prayer. I asked you to come and share with us because I know your passion is that we be connected with God both in listening and speaking with Him.
Your warmth and relational style made your presentation on "Becoming a House of Prayer" easy to understand, yet strongly challenging to us. So many of our Elders commented how perfectly applicable your words were, to where we are on our journey.
Thank you Pat for your love, your sensitivity to God and to people, and your obedience to speak the truth in love. You hit a bull's eye! I will easily recommend you to other pastors as someone with a heart for God and a heart for His Church.
Rev. Lee Nordell, Lead Pastor,
North Battleford Mission Church
“I had the opportunity to sit in on one of Pat Bryan’s seminars a few years ago, so when the opportunity arose for our church to be able to have her come in and teach on Prayer, I jumped at that chance. Pat brings such a loving and real presence that one cannot deny the giftings that this woman has. She teaches from a place of not only experience in her own life, but being able to watch the Holy Spirit move through her while she teaches is awesome.
I would encourage anyone who wants to dig in deeper into prayer, be it personally or corporately, to consider the wisdom that this sister carries, she is authentic and real, and her heart for prayer is contagious. We look forward to having her come back next year.”
Rev. Les Warriner, Director,
Distance Education, Pacific Life Bible College
"I would like to commend to you the ministry and teaching of Pat Bryan. Her passion for prayer is inspiring and Biblically-based. Pat's intimate relationship with Christ combined with her rich experience in ministry is 'manifesting through her the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.'"
Rev. Daniel Gies, Lead Pastor
Turtle Lake Mission Church
"It is without reservation that I would encourage anyone to have Pat come and teach her Prayer Seminar in their church. Pat has the stuff; not only is the seminar valuable but Pat's personality is delightful and refreshing. If as a pastor, encouraging your church in their prayer ministry is on your mind, Pat is someone you should consider. She will put the spotlight on prayer in a way that will make it contagious for your people. Thank you sister, job well done!"
Rev. Jason Wiebe,
Elim Tabernacle (Keremeos)
"You are a dynamic part of the prayer shield protecting and empowering so many of us. I would also like to verify the timing of your words and the encouragement that you have brought at critical times in my ministry. May you be blessed, and thank you for your posts and prayers."
Michelle Hartt, Assistant to the Pastor,
Northside Foursquare Church, Cqquitlam, B.C.
"Thank you Patricia Bryan for allowing God to work through you in such a powerful way this evening at Altared Hearts. I feel so incredibly blessed by what I got to witness and experience as He moved among the women in ways I did not foresee. I'm very grateful that He brought you to us and that you were obedient to His call."
Lynne Bode, Secretary,
Christian Life Assembly, Barriere, BC
"I just wanted to write a sincere recommendation regarding the “Journey of Prayer” seminar given by Pat Bryan. The seminar was excellent; Pat had everything laid out well and easy to follow. She covered every area thoroughly and proficiently.
The one thing that stood out most to me that set Pat apart from most speakers is that she was very sensitive to the Holy Spirit. From time to time you would see Pat stop for a minute or two, then come out with a word of knowledge for someone, or an extra that you knew was speaking to one of the participants. I highly recommend Pat Bryan; because you will experience an extra dimension while being drawn into a greater understanding of prayer and being led by the Holy Spirit."
Cara Lee Buzza, Prayer Ministry Leader,
NorthRidge Foursquare Church, Maple Ridge, BC
"We held the Journey of Prayer seminar for our prayer ministry team at NorthRidge. All those who attended were impacted and challenged to grow in the area of prayer. Pastor Pat's teaching was rooted in scripture and provided a wonderful foundation of what prayer is. The teaching was also practical and applicable to daily life.
As a prayer ministry team, the seminar brought unity. For individuals, everyone left feeling more excited and more inspired to pray. We were all so thankful for the wisdom and teaching of Pastor Pat. The seminar awakened a passion for prayer among all those who attended."
