Prayer Points 24 July 2022
Seniors360 – Given Singapore’s ageing population, we thank God for the many opportunities we had to bless the seniors in Bishan (i.e. Friendship Meals & Food Distribution), and through our partnership with St Luke’s Eldercare (SLEC). Pray for guidance and wisdom for the ministry leaders as they work towards setting up a community space, where seniors can both reach out and be reached with the gospel love of Christ. Pray for more to come forward to serve as befrienders & volunteers, so that more from seniors may come to know our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ruth – We thank God for the faithful service of our sister, Ruth, who will be stepping down from her position as Children’s Ministry staff at the end of this month. Pray for her personally, that she will continue to discern well and invest her time well in things of the Kingdom, to be obedient to where God is leading next. Pray for space, opportunities and courage to share about our Gospel Hope through Ebenezzer’s life.
Pray too for the Children’s Ministry in Zion, that the vision for equipping and training of teachers and parents to disciple the next generation well will continue on, and for the team to figure out what the next season will look like for training teachers and discipling children.
India – Pray for good rains to come to South Bihar, as the paddy fields are drying up since the rainy season (Jun – Sep) has not been good. In this same region, pray for God to provide all the resources needed to complete a prayer house by this October. Praise God some bricks and sand have been prepared by the believers. Pray that God will grant wisdom and good time of learning for 3 families and an individual who have enrolled in the training programme of our partner so that they can be equipped to serve in the Hindi Belt region.
Nepal – One couple who oversees the special needs orphanage from our partner has just given birth to a 840g premature baby girl via C-section. Give thanks for the gift of life as local doctors have initially suggested termination due to the difficult pregnancy. Pray for the baby who is still in ICU and expected to stay there for 1 month, to grow strong and well and also for comfort and healing for the mother. Pray for God’s comfort and strength on the couple who is worried how the premature baby will turn out. Pray also for Bro PD who had an accident (and injured his cervical spine) in the hills while reaching out to his own unreached people group. Pray for his healing after his operation and stay in ICU.
