Hello Again to the Palau Members praying for New Jersey,
February is and will continue to be a very busy month in New Jersey for the Palau organization. The team appreciates so much knowing you are praying for them.
The New Jersey team is partnering with a church called South Ridge Community Church in Clinton, NJ for a major project called Feed the Need. This is a city/serve project that has 8000 volunteers over four days (Feb 16-21) putting together 2 million care boxes for Liberians who are suffering from crop shortages due to the Ebola crisis. There is much to pray about. There needs to be an additional $120,000 raised to support the project. In addition the team is asking that you pray for these many volunteers; for health, protection, and joy. Above all, please pray that the event would be a catalyst to spark revival, not only in Clinton, but in every town from which the volunteers come.
There are many local outreaches that are currently being considered that will fall in the spring leading up to the Palau festival in June. Please pray for wisdom and unity as the team works with local ministers and civic leaders. Our desire is that God would move powerfully in New Jersey in these events, that spiritual renewal would be so evident across north Jersey, that many would come to know Jesus as their Savior and many renew their walk with the Lord. To God be the Glory!!!
Beth Moore wrote on her blog earlier this month a powerful message. Here is part of her inspirational message, which is for all of us, for "such a time as this!"
We've got to pray. We've got to become people of prayer. We've got to press in much further and believe God to be much bigger. We've got to cease letting prayer be our weakest spiritual discipline. We've got to step up and wield the sword of the spirit in relentless intercession. We've got to go further than we've gone before. Press harder. Dig our knees deeper. We will not live bolder than we pray. There are parts of our callings, works of the Holy Spirit, and defeats of the darkness that will come no other way than furious, fervent, faith filled prayer.
"And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him." Hebrews 11:8
May God reward You for your earnest prayers on behalf of New Jersey!
