A Wider Prayer Movement

by Vito Nicastro on December 6, 2016
Dear Pastors of The Glory of God on Cape Cod and The Glory of God in New  England,

>> It has been such a privilege to work with you in recent years on various 
>> initiatives affecting the wider Body of Christ in Massachusetts- it is 
>> even more a pleasure to finally write to you about something we both 
>> agree should be FIRST and foremost: prayer.
>> In these times of challenge for all of us as followers of Jesus Christ, 
>> and aware of the divisions among us, I write on behalf of UniteBoston, a 
>> huge range of Evangelical and Pentecostal pastors, and Cardinal Sean 
>> O'Malley to invite you to co-sponsor a prayer meeting with the theme "The 
>> Love of Christ Compels Us (2 Cor. 5:14)- To Reconcile and To Witness" on 
>> January 21.
>> We understand that The Glory of God on Cape Cod/in New England has a far 
>> reach, so perhaps you might help to make this week of prayer, from 
>> January 18-25, the start of something great for the Kingdom here.
>> In addition, as a co-sponsor you are welcome to:
>> Let us know your thoughts, input, and wishes for this event if you wish,
>> Let us know how you would like to be listed among the co-sponsors on the 
>> flyer (your parish, or "Glory of God on Cape Cod", etc),
>> Set up a table (if you wish) at the Mission and Service Fair saying who 
>> you are and any mission or service opportunities with a dimension of 
>> Christian unity you’d like to offer,
>> Bring a strong representation of your members to the event (obviously), 
>> and
>> Pray- before, during, and after!
>> Many clergy from Evangelical, Catholic, Orthodox, Pentecostal, and 
>> Mainline churches will attend, as well as hundreds of other Christians 
>> from Massachusetts.
>> We are hoping for a strong Evangelical presence because as you know, we 
>> value your voice and your role in the Body of Christ.  The themes of 
>> mission, prayer, scripture, and witness under persecution will be 
>> prominent. We want your particular priceless witness to be heard in every 
>> dimension of this event, because this is hopefully going to help add 
>> momentum to a continuing prayer movement (and action movement) for the 
>> Kingdom of God in metro Boston and beyond.
>> Of course I’m happy to answer any questions- my cell is 617-435-0019. 
>> Please email or call me back if you would like to participate.
>> Thanks for sharing this exciting time!
>> Yours in service to Christian unity "that the world may believe" -Jn.
