Community invited to Ramona’s Evening of Prayer
The world is being shaken up, and young people are being assaulted by all kinds of temptations, says Peter “Coach Pete” Zindler, Ramona resident who invites the community to an Evening of Prayer for the youth of Ramona and the nation.
This is Zindler’s second annual Ramona’s Evening of Prayer. It will be in Ramona Oaks Park, 25341 Pappas Road, from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 3.
“Ramona is a blessed town, but I believe we need to pray for our youth, now more than ever,” he said. “Jesus often went up to the mountains to pray, while we live in a town surrounded by mountains and we are called to pray.”
There have been more earthquakes in the past five years than ever, he said. “Japan was hit with deadly radiation after tidal waves crashed into four reactors. The South and Midwest have been hit with giant tornadoes. The shores of Thailand were swept away by a tsunami. Many people lost their lives because of these natural tragedies. These incidents are reason enough for the body of Christ to come together for the purpose of prayer.”
The event is free and will feature Live Worship and Praise Band. Hot dogs and hamburgers will be served.
“As the time of Jesus’ second coming draws near, there is a great battle erupting in the spirit realm and we have a part to play,” said Zindler. “One of our main weapons is prayer, especially for our youth. Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount, (Matthew 6:16), ‘when you pray’ — not if you pray — (and) ‘when you fast,’ not if you fast.”
Zindler encourages the community “to go the extra mile with me and begin fasting for the Sept. 3rd prayer gathering. Some of you may want to give up a meal, others a whole day, and for some an extended fast. Few times is fasting spoken
