February Update

Greetings West Coast Prayer Partners, 
Thank you for your devotion to prayer.  Our Lord hears and is answering through responsive hearts in Long Island, the surrounding regions and a team hard at work on the ground.

Praise Points

  • Explore God Sermon Series is going very well.  25 churches are offering this series. 400 people from the “Explore God” churches got together for an evening of celebration and worship ~ unity! 
  • Hope Day NY ~ June 6th. "The ReviveLI Group” has embraced this initiative and the collaboration is growing. This event will reach out to families by meeting their basic needs; free groceries, medical & dental screenings, job fairs, haircuts, games and activities for children, etc.

Prayer Points

  • Explore God Sermon Series. Pray specifically for these critical next two weeks that many would hear the Word and surrender to Christ, the congregants continue to be equipped to better share the Gospel and welcome seekers & new believers into their fellowship, and for the Holy Spirit to continue to lead them in power, effectiveness and unity.
  • Hope Day NY ~ June 6th. For God to continue to give vision and direction for Hope Day NY and all the preparations that need to be underway.  (Leaders, Team, Service avenues…). Excitement and strength for the work and love ahead.  
  • Hispanic and Anglo church collaboration. This team is planning to have an August event to bring thousands of multi-ethnic churches together at Eisenhower Park. Three weeks ago they came together to pray for Nassau county and had the county exec and other government officials there. Please pray for the planning and people this event could reach.
  • CityServe. Pray that more churches get on board in their own way.
  • Pray for our Long Island Leaders: Tom Mueller, Long Island Church Relations Director. Robert Bambino, Long Island Church Relations Coordinator. Long Island Pastors and leaders – those who have joined effort with LPA and those who have yet to commit. Long Island intercessors who live in Long Island and have been praying for their region long before we came along to encourage and support.

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Colossians‬ ‭4‬:‭2-4‬ NIV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Thank you for standing in the gap with your labor of love in prayer.
