Prayer Points 17 January 2021
The Next Lap – Continue to pray for our way forward. As we gear up to 200pax services starting 31 Jan, pray for our Pastors and Elders as they lead their respective congregations. Pray also for our AGs and members as we make adjustments to new service timings and returning weekly. Pray also for more opportunities to invite visitors to join our increased capacity services and see Zion Bishan grow as a church.
Christianity Explored (27 Jan) – Keep in prayer the upcoming run of CE. Pray for our facilitators and table hosts to engage well with attendees. Pray for a good time of sharing the gospel and for many to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus.
Leader’s Prep (LP) Groups – LPs have begun for the year. Pray for the hearts of our AG leaders as they spend time each week in preparation. As they work hard getting deep in the Word, to prepare Bible studies for our AGs, pray that both leaders and members will see who Jesus is this year through the gospel of John.
CThe Marriage Course – Through the last 7 weeks, 10 couples have completed the Marriage Course. Pray that each couple will remember the insightful lessons they have learnt that will help them maintain a God-centred marriage. Thank God for the facilitators and Couples Ministry Team who run the course yearly to bless our families and marriages.
Ann Lim – wife of Pastor Lim Jit Thye, fell and hit her head on 13 Jan and was treated at TTSH A&E. Thank God she seems fine and is able to walk on her own. May God’s strength and peace be upon the family at this time, and for a full recovery for Mrs Lim.
Malaysia – On 12 Jan, Malaysia’s king declared a state of emergency that may last up to 1 Aug. Pray that this and the current Movement Control Order for two weeks, in certain regions, will effectively curb the spread of COVID-19. Pray that friends and relatives living there will be safe and manage well during this time.
Rebecca Lee, OMF, Cambodia – In her latest update, we thank God that she has recovered from a bout of ill-health (not COVID-19 related) in Dec 2020. She shares that this illness helped her realise that only God knows exactly what she needs, even it may be different from what she wants. Praise God that 6 new workers have arrived in Cambodia ready to face the challenges of learning a new language and living in a new culture. Pray for their continued adjustment. Pray also for Rebecca to have the wisdom and discernment to persevere in revising the Cambodian language learning curriculum so that it would work with learners of different needs and backgrounds. Thank God for His supply of grace, strength and many little successes in this curriculum review so far.
