Prayer Points 17 May 2020
ZB COVID-19 Ministry Initiatives — Continue to pray for the ongoing work with the 5 rough sleepers placed in our care through the S3P and the food-aid meal deliveries which have seen an increase from 100 to 140 deliveries this week. Pray for the safety and strength of our volunteers and coordinators to carry on this work of sharing Christ’s love with our community.
OMP Prayer Meeting (13 May) – Many signed up and joined the bi-weekly prayer meeting. Thank God for an opportunity to hear more about the ministry work going on in Indonesia and West Asia and to pray for them.
Livestream and Pulpit Ministry – Pray for our pastors and livestreaming team as they handle the task of operating the AV system and leading our congregation in worship. Only 2 people are currently allowed in the sanctuary. Let us pray that by the end of the Circuit Breaker a larger team will be allowed on site to support the important work of gospel proclamation from our pulpit as we wait patiently for when we are able to gather again as a church.
Basic AG Leaders Equipping Course – BAGLE is a 6-week course for our AG Leaders to journey together, think intentionally about building Christ-centred AGs, and how to disciple our members. Please pray for an edifying and fruitful time for the first batch of 6 AG leaders and Dn Danny as he leads.
#zbfamilychallenge – Thank God for the Spirit working among us as we keep in touch and engage with one another during this Circuit Breaker. Pray that these challenges will grow relationships even when we are physically apart.
Adult Discipleship – Thank God for the upcoming ADC by Ps David Wong and for BGST’s videos on Ruth (p. 7). Pray that this will edify many in such a time.
West Nepal – Our ministry partner is an NGO working with vulnerable children. Pray for sufficient food supplies for 4 of their 6 centres in West Nepal. The lockdown for the past 7 weeks has made obtaining food supplies difficult. Two centres have farming, so they are coping better. Pray also for protection from the virus as COVID-19 cases are starting to appear in their areas.
West Bengal, India – Pray for our ministry partner, also an NGO, who serve vulnerable children and families in slum areas. They have been supplying one simple lunch each day to the very poor near their various centres for the past 6 weeks. Do pray for the perseverance and motivation of staff and volunteers involved in this relief work. Pray for their safety so the relief effort will continue unhindered.
