Celebrating God's Work!
Dear Praying Women of the Northwest,
What an amazing time we had this past week in New York City! One of many highlights was hearing Matt Redman lead worship, and give his testimony: he came to Christ 30 years ago at a soccer stadium in London where Luis was preaching. What a wonderful way God brings things full circle!
Before the big event at Central Park on Saturday, a large group circled through the Park and prayed for those coming, those planning and those ministering during the event. It was a blessed time. All felt honored to be there, praying for Central Park alongside those praying throughout the United States! God was there and we saw evidence of that in so many ways. The weather, for one thing, was absolutely perfect! What a praise, when the forecast earlier had been for rain!
I hope you have been able to view at least one of the multiple videos that have been emailed to the NWPT by Gail Stockamp, our prayer leader. These videos (also on YouTube) capture the flavor of the event, and the joy that surrounded those who were at Radio City Music Hall, Times Square and Central Park. You could feel the excitement and joy in the air as Luis and Andrew preached, and as Mandisa, TobyMac, Hezekiah Walker and so many others praised God through their music. Mayor de Blasio came to welcome the event, and surprise artist Chris Tomlin got a warm welcome as well!
Please continue to pray:
~~For the more than 10,000 individuals who committed their lives to Christ during the past many months of CityServe and CityFest events. Pray that their faith would grow to maturity and each one would find a community of believers to connect to and thrive in.
~~The New York City Team has expressed their thanks many times over for your covering of this event in much prayer. We need to continue to pray for the New York City team as they wrap up their duties; some continuing there and others moving on. Pray for rest and renewal for each team member and their families, and that they would keep their eyes fixed on Jesus.
Please visit NY CityFest Facebook for more stories, photos, and reports…
AND Please join us August 11, 1 pm Pacific Time, for our Victory National Prayer Call. You will want to be part of that as we share details of the work God has performed!
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Eph. 3:20-21
Continuing with you in prayer-
