Prayer Points 26 Apr 2020
ZB COVID-19 Ministry Initiatives – Pray for the team looking into the results of the ZB COVID-19 Survey #2. Over 170 have responded and provided perspective on how our members are coping during Circuit Breaker. Pray for our Pastors, Cluster and AG leaders who will be looking into the pastoral care of all our members.
Thank God also for many who have donated to the ZB COVID-19 Mission Relief Fund. Pray that this will bring relief towards the saints, especially to those in the mission fields.
We also give thanks to God for the opportunity to reach out to residents under Comcare. Through the provision of meals, pray that the recipients will experience God’s love. Pray also for Zion Bishan and RC volunteers as they work together in this food distribution.
Safe Sound Sleeping Place (S3P) – Zion Bishan will house 5 rough sleepers until the end of Circuit Breaker. Thank God for the 3 guest stayers, referred by MSF and Homeless Hearts of Singapore, who have settled in.
Pray for our staff, volunteers and Living Room Café that will be checking-in, befriending and providing meals for our guests. May this be an opportunity to show the love of Christ to the most vulnerable in our society.
Extension of Circuit Breaker — We thank God for our government who are doing what they can to stop the spread of the virus so that life can return to normalcy. But on the other hand, we pray for one another as we deal with the implications of this extension. These are some potential implications:
Addictions – Having to spend extended time on computers and devices, pornography and gaming addictions are very present dangers. Pray that all of us deal seriously with sin in our lives and look towards Christ and His church for love and support.
Household relationships – Some families will struggle with being unable to go out, working from home and home-based school. May God help us patiently bear with one another and forgive as God has forgiven us.
Ministry Partner in Indonesia —
A ministry partner was able to distribute basic food to some disabled families who had almost nothing to eat. Many were very appreciative of this effort. Pray for protection and safety of this ministry partner as they seek to minister to other disabled groups with food aid and carry on their work creatively, especially in this time of isolation and lockdown.
