Lament and Confession — “I have trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me.” (Psalm 13)
ZB COVID-19 Ministry Initiatives – The opportunity to reach out to residents under Comcare through food distribution is already bearing fruit as recipients have asked where our volunteers are from. May Christ be seen in the work of our hands.
Safe Sound Sleeping Place (S3P) – A total of 4 rough sleepers have settled in. Continue to pray for opportunities to share the love of God with them.
Home Missions – Praise God for various ministries restarting in the coming weeks. As social distancing measures may carry on for a long time, even after Circuit Breaker, pray for these following ministries to be a blessing to their participants:
Domestic Helpers Fellowship (DHF) –DHF resumes their weekly Bible study fellowship via Zoom today (3 May). Pray for many helpers to attend and for the sessions to bless them. Thank God several employers have indicated their help by encouraging their helpers to join and assisting with using the app.
English as a Second Language (ESL) – The team of teachers have restarted lessons using Zoom, WhatsApp, calls and mail. Pray that these challenges will not hinder the ministry’s effort to bless many through teaching.
Bishan Home for the Intellectually Disabled (BHID) – Pray for the team developing Sunday school video lessons for the residents.
West Bengal and Sikkim, India— Thank God for our ministry partner who was able to distribute simple food parcels of rice, dhal, and potatoes to help widows, families, and the poor in their neighbourhood. Pray for God’s blessing on their plans to reach 500 families and individuals with this food distribution.
Lebanon — Pray for adequate resources and supplies for this ministry partner as they serve refugees and needy church families with meals from their centre. The poor economic situation has been made worse by COVID-19 and has made it extremely difficult for vulnerable families. For some, the risk of starvation is a reality. Zion Bishan’s CV19 MRF will be used to help support this effort, called the ‘Hot Meals’ programme, for the next 2 months. Pray for our Lord’s mercy and relief to come to those in need.
