Here is the video I used in my message today. Enjoy!
Like churches all around the globe we about to enter Holy Week. Here are the strategic things we are asking our local church to be praying for each day. Join us and/or come up with the things your church can pray for!
Saturday – Pray that the Easter Egg hunts, for each campus, may draw new families to the church.
Sunday – Praise the Lord this Palm Sunday that Jesus resolutely faced his death for us.
Monday – Pray for friends or family members you hope to invite to the Easter service.
Tuesday – Pray for the Children’s Ministry workers serving Easter morning.
Wednesday – Pray for Pastor Steve as he completes his message “It’s Friday Night but Sunday’s Coming.”
Thursday – Pray for the Worship Team and Choir as they rehearse for Sunday.
Friday – Pray that the Spirit of the Lord would be powerfully with us at our Good Friday services (Syosset and Manhasset, 6pm and 7:30pm).
Saturday – Pray that the Gospel message will be clearly delivered and that many will begin their journey of faith on Easter Sunday.
Easter Sunday Morning – Praise the Lord that Jesus is Risen; THIS CHANGES EVERTHING!
