Prayer Points 6 September 2020
Tamil Service – Thank God for blessing our Tamil Service! They celebrate their 36th anniversary today. Pray for their congregation to grow spiritually and for more to join them.
Teachers Day – Today we commemorate and thank God for the teachers in our lives. We especially thank God for our many CD and YD leaders who teach our children and youth the word of God. May our Lord bless the teachers of His word strength, time and wisdom to equip the next generation of faith in our church.
Domestic Helpers – Thank God that many helpers were thrilled to receive care packs from church, and were touched by our expression of love for them. A non-Christian told us she is reading the Bible she received in the pack. She and several other helpers have started to join our Sunday Zoom bible studies regularly. Pray that all domestic helpers contacted will have open hearts, ready to hear God and enjoy reading His word. Pray also that God’s word will reach deep into their hearts and impact them, leading them to love God and follow Him wholeheartedly.
Rebecca Lee (OMF worker, Cambodia) – Praise God that she has come out of a season of ill-health and that her health is now stable. There are some new OMF workers who have had to postpone their arrival in Cambodia due to the pandemic. Pray for God’s good timing for their arrival and that they will be able to focus on God’s calling and faithfulness even in the midst of the uncertainty. Rebecca is also involved in a ministry to Cambodian university students. Pray that a suitable local will be found to boldly lead this ministry where students share Christ with fellow students on campuses.
Beirut, Lebanon – Since the explosion in Beirut on 4 Aug, our ministry partner has been working hard to repair their building. They have managed to repair most of the windows and external gates. They are still determined to continue providing hot meals for refugee families living nearby. Praise God for whatever has been raised so far for their repairs. Pray for the continued provision of funds necessary for the repairs. Next, they hope to repair the internal doors, ceiling lights, tiles and security camera wiring.
Global Church – As the world reaches 8 months of its battle with the Coronavirus, the global church is now seeing the eroding effects of such a long physical separation of believers from one another. This is especially so in places where there is religious opposition. Do pray that churches in our world will grow to be aware of the danger separation poses to believers and that they will prayerfully, and creatively, find ways to continue steadfastly in discipleship and encouragement of one another.
