Pray for the Ministry of CEF


June Call to Prayer

“The church has not yet touched the fringe of the possibilities of intercessory prayer. Her largest victories will be witnessed when individual Christians everywhere come to recognize their priesthood unto to God, and day by day give themselves unto prayer.”

~ John R. Mott

May we, as CEF of North Jersey, endeavor to pray so as to see great victories in reaching children for Christ.


  • Twyla attended the National Conference in May; it was a great time of refreshment, encouragement and challenge
  • Well-attended May 23 volunteer training event for Ice Cream Party Clubs, with 6 or 7 people indicating plans to hold Parties for neighborhood children this summer
  • For the children and volunteers who participated in the 8 Good News Clubs held during this school year
  • A volunteer from last summer’s 5-Day Clubs has been keeping in touch with a Spanish-speaking family who attended Club, and referred them to the Salvation Army in Paterson. The children are attending the Good News Club and their mother has decided to go there. They are doing well despite living in poverty and still navigating a new country. They do have the joy of the Lord!

  • Ask the Lord to provide Twyla with the health, strength and stamina to serve well in all the work He has given her, especially in light of some recent health challenges
