Prayer Points 30 August 2020
Christianity Explored (26 Aug) – This stage of CE is where some participants stop coming, and the others usually stay until the end. Pray for those who have stopped coming, that the Lord will bring them to Himself some other way. Thank God also for those who keep coming. Pray that the Spirit will work in their hearts and minds to grow their understanding and discover who Jesus is.
Annual Congregational Meeting (26 Sep) – Pray for our Pastors and Elders as they continue preparing towards the ACM. Let us, as members of this church, also prayerfully consider what lies ahead.
Christina Wong – Our staff from The Living Room had been warded at TTSH for endogenous dermatitis which had become infected. Thank God her condition has improved. Please pray that the new treatment prescribed for her chronic condition will be effective in providing relief and full recovery.
S3P – Two of our stayers are going through a discovery Bible study. Thank God for their receptivity to the gospel. Pray that the time they spend in God’s Word will teach them to be faithful disciples of our Lord Jesus.
Vernon Quek – As noted in the BPCIS Update (p.6), Vernon has begun the process to be ordained as a pastor. Pray for him as he begins this process juggling between ministry, studies and family commitments. Pray for times of rest in God and encouragement from fellow saints to spur him on to love and bear fruit for Jesus. Thank God for leading him thus far in this journey of ministering to the church.
India – Pray for wisdom for authorities and adequate resources for fighting COVID-19 in India as the number of positive Coronavirus cases go beyond 3.2 million. Our ministry partners report great economic hardship for many of their members as well as communities. In Central India, our ministry partner reports that the flood situation is at a dangerous level. Thank God that our partner was able to provide some food relief for needy families. Pray that this practical help will encourage and open doors for good gospel conversations.
Bacolod City, Philippines –Due to the pandemic in the Philippines, our ministry partner, Student Missionary Outreach (SMO) has had to find alternative ways to meet with students from the high schools and colleges they serve. SMO has limited capacity for online engagement due to their current broadband situation. Pray for the provision of resources that would boost this capacity so that they can connect with students and also conduct training sessions online for their staff and others.
