Prayer Points 31 May 2020
Pentecost Sunday – “For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love…” Eph 3:14-17 (ESV). May the Spirit, given to the church on Pentecost, give us wisdom and knowledge of God’s plan and power towards the saints so that we walk in love with one another.
Food Aid Meal Deliveries – We have served 3,000 meals to our neighbours in need this week, and we will be extending our meal deliveries after Circuit Breaker. Praise God for the many volunteers who are helping. Pray for volunteers to be able to connect through the brief conversations and smiles (through our masks) to the households around our church. May the beauty of Christ be seen in all that we do.
S3P – Pray for long-term shelter solutions for our 5 guest stayers in our church. Praise God that one of them has been offered a HDB rental flat and would be able to move there soon. Thank God for another who has been open to hearing the gospel. We have had good talks on spiritual matters and this week he was able to pray with Ps Lim for forgiveness of his sins. Pray for his love and trust in Jesus to grow and to help him through the trials of health and life he is facing.
Students – Children and students return to school this week. Pray for not only their safety, but also their testimonies for Christ in their schools. Pray also for ZBK and for their reopening.
India, West Bengal – Thank God for the protection from serious harm and loss for two ministry partners who faced Cyclone Amphan this week. One was in Kolkata and the other further north in the path of the cyclone.
India, Bihar – Pray for wisdom and perseverance for Thomas, one of our ministry partners staff worker who has been harassed and beaten by some villagers. The local police have intervened. His family is scared and have moved out to another place for safety. Thank God for fellow believers who have come alongside Thomas to encourage him at this time.
Indonesia – Pray for healing and recovery for Pak Heru, a wise and faithful man and his wife, who are both hospitalized for COVID-19. Pak Heru was with a group of churches in Indonesia working with Zion Bishan in the past. Pray particularly for Pak Heru. He currently has pneumonia and is on a ventilator.
