Pray diligently and with thanksgiving. – Colossians 4:2

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

Thank you for your willingness to pray for the unity, witness and mission of the church on January 1. The Greater New Jersey Conference begins praying in a few hours. Prayer is powerful, and we are a praying church. There will be GNJ clergy and laity praying around the clock starting at midnight. Your prayers will bless the church and the world. We have more than 337 congregations participating.

Together we will pray for the unity of United Methodists and our witness and mission in the world.  Thank you for your participation

Beverly and I wish you a blessed New Year.
