Praying for Pottstown, Every Friday

Blogger's Note: The following was provided to us recently by the Rev. Reggie Brooks, senior pastor at Victory Christian Life Center and we thought we would share it with you.
For the past 11 years, a small group of pastors in the Pottstown area have been meeting every Friday morning from 9 to 10 a.m. to pray for this community. 

This was started by Pastor Donnie Cloen of New Passion Church; Pastor Mike Anthony of Heart of God Family Worship Center and Pastor Reggie Brooks of Victory Christian Life Center. 

In the past few years the attendance has shifted to include Pastor Charles Cedeno of New Life Assembly of God and Pastor Bruce Levengood of Hopewell Community Church.

More recently, a letter was sent out to other area churches inviting the pastors to come out for the first prayer of the new year on Jan. 2.

And 25 people responded and began to pray aggressively for Pottstown. 

This prayer meeting happens every Friday from 9 to 10 a.m. 

On the first three Fridays of the month, the prayer is held at Victory Christian Life Center, located an the southeast corner of Franklin and Washington streets. 

The prayer will be at different churches on the fourth Friday of each month.

"We believe that the time has come for everyone to come together in prayer, Pastors and lay-people alike. It does not matter what your denomination is, we are not looking to divide the community but to unite in a common cause to bring an end to the violence and destruction of this town," according to Reggie Brooks, the senior pastor of Victory Christian Life Center.

In February, the fourth Friday prayer will be held at New Birth Life Church, 335 W. High St. in Pottstown. 

In March, the fourth Friday prayer will be held at New Life Assembly of God, 902 N. Evans St. in Pottstown.

"We look forward to a fantastic year and a powerful outpouring of God’s spirit on this town that will heal our land and bring forth the many blessings the God has promised us," Brooks wrote.
