Prayer Points 23 August 2020
Annual Congregational Meeting (26 Sep) – As the church works towards this virtual ACM, uphold our leadership and planning team in prayer. With a lot of information and instructions going out, pray for discretion and discernment of our members to follow along with a loving and gentle Spirit, asking our Lord to guide us into the years ahead.
Pray for the Youth Ministry:
Youth Fellowship – Keep the youths and committee in prayer as they have returned to meeting in-person on Saturdays at 4pm. Thank God for sustaining them through many months of meeting online. Pray for the YF committee as they lead, plan and execute weekly activities in a safe manner, while seeking to build one another up as they meet physically. Pray more will join the Saturday fellowship.
Youth Discipleship – YD continues in their age and gender separated classes, mostly on Zoom. Attendance has dropped since classes had to go online. Pray for our YD leaders as they prepare and engage the youths with God’s Word weekly. Pray for the hearts of our youths to grow in the knowledge of God, learning to love and glorify Him in their lives.
Youth Ministry Exco – Thank God for Dn Chin Yew, Dns Peck San, Ee Wern, Shermaine and Karwei who have guided and discipled our youths. Pray for God’s leading as they meet to discuss direction for the Youth Ministry. Also thank God and pray for Jacqueline as she continues getting to know the youths and discern God’s calling for her as an apprentice.
Beirut, Lebanon – Our ministry partner reports on a very dire situation where many in the church community have been hit hard by both the explosion and the economic crisis. They require much outside aid to survive this crisis. Pray for God to provide for their essential needs and for the much-needed courage and strength to endure the rebuilding of their lives after so much destruction. In the face of such a hopeless situation, pray for God to bring back that spark of hope to the Lebanese people.
West Nepal – Praise God for the 20th anniversary of our ministry partner’s existence on 18 Aug. Pray for God to continue growing and blessing the ministry. They have served faithfully and compassionately in providing a loving place for many children who do not have parents. Starting with 6 children, they have grown to serving more than 200 children. Praise God that some of them are studying and working in different places. Many of the children do not know their birthdays or even their own ages so many celebrate our ministry partner’s birthday as their own!
