Prayer Points 30 May 2021
Worshipping Together – Pray for our church as we continue worshipping mostly online. Pray that in such times the Word of God and the fellowship of saints online will continue to grow our hearts. Thank God we are still able to open our doors to those who need to come down in-person for service. Holy Communion will be suspended next week (see p8).
Urban Missions Conference – Pray for our church to have open hearts and minds to learn how we can reach out to the lost in urban places. Pray that the sermons, workshops and prayer meetings in July will spur us towards love and action for the lost whether locally or further away in Urban Missions.
Project Love Bishan – Thank God for this opportunity to show love to the needy in Bishan and Sin Ming on Saturday (29 May). Pray that this project will have brought blessing on both our volunteers and the beneficiaries (more than 80 households). Pray for doors to open for follow-up with these households.
India – Continue to pray for the situation in India and for our Partners there:
COVID-19 & Mucormycosis – Many partners report deaths and infections from COVID. One of the church planters supported by ZB had tested positive for COVID and passed away suddenly. He leaves behind his wife and 3 children who have been inconsolable with grief. They could not attend his burial because they were on home quarantine. Pray for comfort for the family and the other believers. There are also many deaths of people in Bihar infected by black fungus. Pray for protection of our mission workers serving there.
Update on Brother B – Thank God that Brother B, who had one leg amputated and the other badly injured, is recuperating well and in good spirit. He is even able to conduct prayer and worship services online with some assistance! Also, God has provided a family to care for his daughter so that she need not be given up for adoption. We thank God for His healing and leading Brother B through this long and stressful experience. Pray that the prosthetic leg will be done smoothly in due course.
Myanmar – Continue to pray for peace for this country. Our mission partner reports: “Every day we hear bombings.” Pray for their protection and for the safety of fellow believers, some who expectant mothers and due for delivery in June. Going to hospitals is difficult with the current circumstances.
West Asia – Pray for the family of T & J to adapt well in their adopted country. May our Lord protect and use this family mightily to witness for Christ. Pray also for peace to come to the current conflict between Israel and Palestine. Partner B in Palestine reports briefly that they are doing well though the situation is still very bad.
