Thanks You Notes

It is not often that a landlord sincerely thanks the CCEA for assisting one of their tenants.  Today the CCEA assisted a mother and her three children.  The mother was most appreciative.  With so many landlords in our area executing evictions, it was comforting to hear a landlord who was genuinely concerned about her tenant and had not started the eviction process.   The landlord stated that “landlords have expenses and can only help so much”.

Quote from landlord “Thank you and your organization (CCEA) for helping” 

The sincerity of the landlord's statement made my day!

Thank you to all who support the CCEA, you have no idea just how many lives you truly touch!

God Bless!


We want to thank you for all of your hard-work and heart work that went into leading your community into the throne room of heaven to Pray Fervently in Righteousness and Avail Much on the National Day of Prayer. We are deeply grateful the many hours spent planning, preparing, and praying for your gathering. Our nation was covered in prayer from sunrise on the East Coast, through afternoon across the heartland and all the way until sunset on the Pacific Islands. You created a canopy of prayer over our nation on May 4th!

Our hearts were filled with joy as we heard about prayer gatherings in homes, observances at city halls and prayer and worship events in school arenas, all praying fervently in righteousness for the Lord to avail much in our nation’s families, arts, entertainment and media, government, military, businesses, education, and churches.

Now, we want to hear more from you and see how God availed MUCH! Please fill out this event report to share prayers and photos from your gathering along with a few details about your experience:

If you experienced God in a unique way or want to share in more detail how your gathering encountered God in prayer, please email you Glory Story to

The National Day of Prayer is a celebration of the prayer that takes place the other 364 days each year. As you reflect on your event, consider the prayers that God is calling you to keep praying, and explore the doors that were opened through your National Day of Prayer gathering.

Perhaps your mayor attended for the first time, or several churches collaborated in prayer and worship on this day. Maybe this was your first time connected with fellow NDP Task Force volunteer coordinators, and you want to keep in touch. Allow the Lord to continue to move in these relationships by following up with a few key individuals with thank you notes, a phone call, or even an invitation to coffee.

For our NDPTF State Coordinators, please consider a handwritten note of encouragement and commitment to continued prayer to your governor with your NDP business card enclosed.

Let’s continue Praying Fervently in Righteousness and Availing Much!


Rejoicing in Hope,


The NDP Task Force Staff


Thanks to all for promptly picking up today.  I would like to send a huge thank you to Reggie Powers and Bobb Webb, from Chesapeake City Ecumenical Association for their dedication each month with assisting our staff to prepare the pantry pallets.  Without their assistance, we would not be able to quickly assemble your monthly distribution, so thank you guys!!!

 I hope everyone has enjoyed this beautiful day and I look forward to seeing you next time.  

Take care,

Well, this Ukrainian is very happy the CCEA is there - that the building is getting some use - and I'm well aware that if you guys hadn't stepped in, the building would have been condemned before long.

God Bless you and the works your organization provides.


Thanks You Notes

5/20/2016 Thank you, Chesapeake City Ecumenical Assoc.....(CCEA)....I stopped in last Wednesday to help out a little and seeing that Nurse Joanne was there, decided to have my blood pressure taken. She probably saved me from a stroke, or worse! My blood pressure was high and a subsequent trip to the DR showed it was actually even higher, dangerously so. If i hadn't run into her, I was headed for debilitating health problems. I had no idea I had this issue. Some medication is already making me feel better than I have in a year. Stop in to the CCEA on Wednesdays and have your BP taken. It might save your life! Thank you, Nurse Joanne!

Dec 2015 - The following is from a generous donor to the CCEA. His words help make the long volunteer hours of constant work meaningful.

“Thank you for the great work you do. I have never experienced hunger and with God’s blessings I hope I never do. It is nice to know there are people who will take the time to help those less fortunate.

 Merry Christmas. My wife and I are both blessed with everything we need. Sometimes I forget how lucky I am.”
