New Jersey’s September meeting


Good morning Ladies ~ I pray your day will be a good one.

To start this post, let us remember:


This is the day which the LORD hath made;

we will rejoice and be glad in it.



It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.

The LORD is my portion, saith my soul;
therefore will I hope in him.

The LORD is good unto them that wait for him,
to the soul that seeketh him.

Lamentations 3:22-25


At September’s meeting in New Jersey they had some entertainment from ‘The Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry’  of NJ. They sang songs, the shofar was blown and the meaning of the Jewish New Year was explained.

Below are Bonnie and Jose.


Here we have Jose blowing the shofar.



The shofar is used mainly on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. It is blown in synagogues to mark the end of the fast at Yom Kippur, and blown at four particular occasions in the prayers on Rosh Hashanah. Because of its inherent ties to the Days of Repentance and the inspiration that comes along with hearing its piercing blasts, the shofar is also blown after morning services for the entire month of Elul, the last month of the Jewish civil year and the sixth of the Jewish ecclesiastical year. It is not blown on the last day of month, however, to mark the difference between the voluntary blasts of the month and the mandatory blasts of the holiday. Shofar blasts are also used during penitential rituals such as Yom Kippur Katan and optional prayer services called during times of communal distress.

Happy Birthday Ladies.

Below are some of the ladies writing out their prayer requests.


This is a great way to let others know what to pray for us for. We are to pray to God first and foremost for our needs, but we can ask for others to pray for us as well.

Yesterday I found the following verse on prayer.

Weymouth New Testament translation of Ephesians 6:18 says this:

Pray with unceasing prayer and entreaty on every fitting occasion in the Spirit, and be always on the alert to seize opportunities for doing so, with unwearied persistence and entreaty on behalf of all God's people,

In 1Timothy 2:1 we read ~ I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

We read in Philippians 4:6 ~ Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

So, dear Ladies as we go about our day today may we think on these things as we pray for God’s help for ourselves and each other.

Love, hugs and prayers ~ Rainey
