(2) 10:15AM- 12PM Individually or together in your homes using online media of your choice we offer prayer for those who request it and for the global needs
(3)12PM Zoom call closing prayer (again you must email me for this)

Even if you are not going to do the online prayer, we appreciate your personal prayers, intercession and covering over this ministry.
—Please pray that Father God would draw those people to Jesus who need his love and light.

—Please pray that we would be able to reach out in love to others, strengthening and encouraging them through our witness.
—Please pray for protection, grace, and favor for all team members and participants and all who would see this ministry in action.
—Please pray for healing throughout the world, especially for the challenges and suffering caused by COVID-19, for those who are struggling for breath, and for the various needs in our community including those that will be brought to our awareness this weekend.
IF YOU NEED A T-SHIRT, whether you want to be on team or as an intercessor, please email me and I will get one to you.
Some final thoughts...
We don’t have to get it perfect! While we can’t congregate on the actual Boardwalk, we can still step out in faith. The purpose of our “Boardwalk” ministry is to reach out in love to our greater community through the offer of prayer, so that Christ’s love might be visible through us. We do this, knitted together in our love for Christ and one another. The world is hurting right now, and people need the love and light of Christ more than anything.
Christ is risen!
