Prayer Points 5 July 2020
In-person Church Services – Praise God some of us are able to gather in church today! We have waited a long time for this day, which has given us a glimpse of our wait for The Day. May this gathering of saints encourage one another as we partake in Holy Communion as one body in Christ. May those unable to join be encouraged by the Word of God and the fellowship of His Spirit.
ZB COVID-19 Ministry Initiatives – We thank God for new volunteers, through the ZB CV-19 Survey #3, for the Food Aid meal provision, which is continuing to 31 July. Pray for our leaders and volunteers in this initiative as we begin delivering lunches, on top of dinners that we have been providing. We will have delivered 6000 meals by the end of this week. Thank God for the continued opportunity to bless these families under Comcare. Pray for the Spirit’s leading, and for a prayerful attitude of all involved, to grow good relations with our neighbours.
Safe Sound Sleeping Place (S3P) – The 4 guest stayers will also continue staying with us until the end of July. Pray that their Social Workers and church befrienders, who are helping them, will find solutions for long-term housing.
Youths – Uphold our youths in prayer as they experience a very different Youth Day this year. Pray they will understand how God is at work even through this pandemic. Pray that they will understand how much they are loved by Him and is shaping them to reflect the image of His Son. As they spend their time in their studies, may they discover how God has uniquely gifted them for the work of His Kingdom. May they glorify God wherever He leads them in their future. Pray for their parents to walk alongside them as they make important decisions in this season of life; for the Christian parent to guide them with the word of God; and for the non-Christian parent to see the light of Christ in their youth’s life.
Singapore – With the General Elections upon us, let us pray for our political parties to carry out this election peacefully, with clear vision for our people and nation. Pray also for ourselves to remember to love our neighbours and to be a testimony for Jesus in our conduct towards one another during this time where strong opinions and debates will arise.
East Nepal – Brother Prakash, who underwent surgery for a stroke, is recovering very well. He is able to talk a little and is currently undergoing occupational therapy. Do pray for his continued recovery.
Thank God that most of the 22 children under this ministry partners care have recovered from the fever, diarrhoea and chickenpox mentioned last week. Pray that they will all return to full health.
