Prayer Points 28 February 2021
ECM – Praise God for all the planning and preparations gone into the Extraordinary Congregational Meeting. Pray for our church to be wise stewards of the resources that God has given to us.
ESL – The English as a Second Language ministry will begin classes on 1 Mar. Pray for our teachers to serve with joy. Pray also for more from the church to step forward to serve as teachers and volunteers (see p.8).
Pastor Alby Yip – Thank God his first operation has gone smoothly. Pray for his time or rest and healing. Pray for his second operation coming up in 3 weeks. Pray that the operations will help restore more function to his injured hand.
Congregation Serving Teams – Thank God for the Deacons and volunteers that have stepped up to serve each week. As our Taskforce make preparations to ready the church to increase to 250pax in-person services, pray for more to step forward to serve at their congregations.
Central India – Pray for worker B to recover fully from his operation and injuries. Pray also that he will continue putting his hope in God despite the severe trials he has endured. These include a bus accident 2 weeks ago which led to an amputated foot, his wife passed on last year, one child had to be given up for adoption and the other is pending adoption. Yet amidst these challenges, and post operation pains, our field director SR reports that B is thinking about his 3 local congregations and his vision of building the Lord’s church. He hopes to release songs he has written via YouTube or CDs so that more people can hear about our Lord Jesus.
East & North India – Praise God that new worship centres have started operations in East India. In North India, we thank God for 4 new fields that have opened up through the witness of local believers. Pray for more long-term workers to come and serve in these areas.
Indonesia – Praise God a second clean water project has been completed at a community near our partner’s church. Pray for a closer bond to be built with the local community and for wisdom amongst local believers to be able to share the Good News so that more can receive Jesus into their lives. Pray for the local churches to make a positive impact in their communities and for their neighbours to see the power of Jesus working in and through their lives.
Myanmar – Large gatherings were reported all over Myanmar this week and the situation continues to intensify. Pray for God’s peace to come upon this difficult conflict and for Christians to trust God and seek ways to be peacemakers during this crisis.
