Basic Action Group Leaders Equipping Course – Please uphold the Basic Action Group Leaders Equipping (BAGLE) participants as the 6-week course begins today. Do pray that our Father will help each participant grow in clarity of healthy small groups according to His design in Scripture. Pray especially for refreshment and nourishment for all as we listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd, Jesus. Pray for God’s help too as we explore difficult issues of pastoral care and burnout.
The Living Room (LR) – We heard from mission focus last week of the many doors God has opened for LR to share the love and the good news of Christ with seniors and residents in our Bishan neighbourhood. May we as a church family, both individually or as an AG, consider these initiatives by the LR & partner with the Holy Spirit in this way to make outreach an intentional part of our discipleship journey.
Daniel Tay – Please pray for our brother who will be undergoing a very major surgery on 31 May to remove a cancerous soft tissue tumour. It will be a 10-12 hour surgery involving the removal of several major organs as the tumour is a large one in the back of his abdominal cavity. Pray for God’s hands to be with the whole team of surgeons and medical/nursing team during surgery and throughout the post-op period. Pray for Melissa, Minnie and Terry, & the extended family for God’s peace and strength to fill their hearts.
NE India – Pray for Brother Cecil’s wife, Sonali, who has Leukaemia for many years. Some of us at Zion Bishan will remember this couple when they were with us many years ago. Pray for God’s grace and mercy as more painful tests are expected next month. Pray that those tests will help doctors know how to treat her current infection effectively. Thank God for the provision of flight tickets which has enabled her to return home quicker rather than enduring a long journey by train. She is currently resting at home.
