Dearest Prayer Warriors,
Thanks for your participation in our prayer group. You are all such a blessing and your prayers are coveted! God is at work and the team is moving forward, committees are forming, chairmen and leaders are organizing, but we've just only begun and there are a lot of things to do!
LPA STAFF AND COMMITTEES
- KEY MEETING MARCH 19TH: Officially forming our NY CityServe Committee.
- COMMITTEE FORMATION, both in English (led by Tim Innes) and in Spanish (led by Ruben Proietti). Pray for the Holy Spirit’s prompting and for God to open hearts on both the church and marketplace/business leadership sides.
- SAFE TRAVELS AND GOOD HEALTH FOR ALL LPA STAFF TRAVELING MONTHLY TO NYC: Specifically Kevin Palau, Tim Innes, Randy Burtis, Ruben Proietti, EdmundoGastaldi, and Carlos Barbieri.
- NEW NYC STAFF: We need to train and equip 20 part time church coordinators for all boroughs/areas.
- PREPARATIONS FOR MAY MEETINGS: 12 informational sessions casting the vision to pastors and leaders in all regions for CityServe and the Festival.
NYC AND OUR NATION
- CHURCHES, DENOMINATIONS, AND CULTURE: Pray for people of all cultures and ethnicities from churches around the New York City metro area to be excited for the festival, to come on board in unity over the essential Gospel message without division or misunderstandings on the non-essentials. Pray that all will feel welcome and set aside and differences for full participation in City Serve.
- NEW YORK CITY REGIONAL AREAS: Pray for the 5 boroughs that make up the New York City metro area (Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan, Staten Island, and Queens) along with the 4 outlying areas (Long Island and Westchester County, parts of New Jersey and Southern Connecticut).
- PRAY FOR REVIVAL, IN NYC AND ACROSS OUR NATION! Revival begins with brokenness by recognizing our sin... responding with humility, repentance and dependence on God through Jesus Christ. "For thus say the high and exalted One Who lives forever, whose name is Holy, "I dwell on high and holy place, And also with the contrite and lowly of spirit In order to revive the spirit of the lowly And to revive the heart of the contrite." Isaiah 57:15
PRAISE GOD that we have more than 250 praying members and the group is growing daily. Those members represent 33 states and include Washington DC, Jamaica, Canada, England and New Zealand! We are hoping, in faith, to have every state covered by the end of this month.
AND, WE THANK THE LORD for the encouraging report brought to us by Pastor Dimas
Salaberrios, from Infinity Bible Church in the Bronx. He has inspired us with the knowledge that
believers in NYC have been mobilized in prayer and are praying and fasting around the clock for both CityFest and CityServe!
From the West, people will fear the Lord: From the rising of the sun they will revere His glory.
May this become true in our generation and for this whole continent!
Knowing He is Almighty, In Jesus' Holy Name,
