Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly ...

Pastor JJ is on his way up to Camp Barakel for a week to proclaim the glories of the gospel to a group of Junior High campers. Will you join us in praying that they have ears to hear God speak, eyes to see the glory of Jesus and hearts that would be transformed, and that Pastor JJ would be strengthened as he faithfully preaches the Word? Below you will find a prayer guide that will help focus your prayers for each of their chapel services. Let’s spend time this week asking God to do the mighty work only he can do in our hearts.
