Dear Heavenly Father,
We lift up the Bronx to You, Lord, as it is so culturally diverse and the poorest borough with the largest needs! We praise You for the Wed. morning prayer calls between pastors that You have begun; this is the Hand of God. We join them in praying for revival to come to the Bronx! Thank You, Father, for preparing the soil even now: "Let salvation spring up, in the Bronx, Lord, and let righteousness grow with it." Isaiah 45:8
We thank You, Father, for Your servant, Levi Park who has the huge task of overseeing the Bronx as well as New Jersey!
We pray Your redemptive Word over him and the Bronx for protection, wisdom, strength and energy. Lord, his requests this month are for:
1. The Pastor's meeting this week about a major outreach in Orchard Beach, where 25-50,000 people can be found on any given sunny day.
2. Direction and settlement in the public relations and advertising plans.
3. Meetings in both the Bronx and NJ this week.
4. Launch of radio and church publicity for the Re:New conference, coming Feb. 10-13.
5. Pastor's Prayer Summit, Jan. 19-21.
6. Re:New Conference, Feb. 10-13. Hosted in the Bronx on Wednesday, Feb. 11.
Father, as Levi is tilling the soil, preparing for the harvest in the Bronx, we pray "The Lord gives you the desire of your heart and makes all your plans succeed." Psalm 20:4. And, Isaiah 40:29-31, "that those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak." "Spread Your protection over Levi and his family...For surely, O Lord, You bless the righteous; You surround Levi with Your favor as with a shield." Psalm 5:12. "Be strong and courageous, Levi, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple is finished." 1 Chronicles 28:20
Lord, we commit this major outreach at Orchard Beach and the Pastor's meeting this week to You in prayer. We pray there will be a mighty harvest and for a glorious sunny day where lives will be changed for all eternity. Psalm 85:6 says, "Will You not revive us again, and Your people rejoice in You? Show us Your unfailing love, O Lord, and grant (Orchard) Beach) Your salvation."
Father, we lift up the Re:New conferences being held in NJ, the Bronx, Manhattan and Brooklyn from Feb. 10-13. We pray for 2,000 and even more to attend each night, as we know You are "able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine." Ephesians 3:20
Start spreading the Word, Lord, through the media, social media, radio and we pray that the Brooklyn Tabernacle would join and worship: Just as when Moses completed the tabernacle (Exodus 40:34) with the cloud of Your glory, we pray all the people will see Your glory, in all these boroughs and fall down and worship You at Re:New! Leviticus 9:23-24
Father, use LPA as a catalyst, an instrument of Your grace in all these gatherings beginning at the Prayer Summit Jan. 19-21: Lord, You know this is a critical and key prayer request as there will be 300+ leaders from all over the region for two days of prayer and dreaming together. As they gather in groups by boroughs to pray, Lord, knit their hearts together to get engaged with the Luis Palau CityServe Campaign. We pray they will come together in unity, to put down their agenda and pick up God's agenda: Habakkuk 1:5 says, "Look at the Nations and watch-and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days (in NYC) that you would not believe even if you were told."
"The Lord will indeed give what is good and our land (NYC) will yield its HARVEST. Righteousness goes before Him and PREPARES the way for His steps." Psalm 85:12-13
"For the Lord God will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy will be complete." Deuteronomy 16:15
In Jesus Christ's Name we all pray. Amen.
