In our current crisis here, it is impossible to foresee all of the details of what’s coming. However, three very important principles emerge out of the book of Habakkuk that are as relevant to us today as they were to Habakkuk in his day.
1. GIVE REVERENT SUBMISSION TO A SOVEREIGN GOD
“But the LORD is in His holy temple. Let all the earth be silent before Him” (Habakkuk 2:20). No matter how bad the times may become, we must always remember that God is in control. Thus, ours is not to complain or argue with God, but reverently submit to His wise providence, regardless of what form it takes.
2. OFFER EARNEST PRAYER FOR REVIVAL IN JUDGMENT
“LORD, I have heard the report about You and I fear. O LORD, revive Your work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy” (Habakkuk 3:2). We may initially react to bad economic and political news with fear. But there is another option, . . . revival. Habakkuk prays that God would breathe new spiritual life into His nation “in the midst of the years”—in other words, during this undefined period of judgment that lay just ahead. There is always hope that God will awaken His sleeping people, purify them, and invest them with new spiritual power. And this should be our prayer at the present time.
3. MAINTAIN CONFIDENT JOY IN THE MIDST OF SUFFERING
Habakkuk closes his prophecy by admitting that he was shaking on the inside, his lips were quivering, and he felt weak because of the coming “day of distress” at the hands of the Chaldeans (Habakkuk 3:16). But he gathers his resolve and declares that in the face of adverse economic conditions, he will rejoice in the Lord. “Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior.” (Habakkuk 3:17-18).
So if our economy disintegrates in the coming months, we won’t need to join the chorus of desperation and despair. We must not seek our refuge in gold or foreign currency or government sponsored bailouts. Our hope is in the Lord. That’s how we will survive a collapsing economy!

WHY DO THE COURSE?
Parenting teenagers is harder than ever for most parents today. No role we undertake is more important than parenting.
We are the main influence on our teenagers’ future. Discovering we are not alone in the challenges we face and picking up ideas from other parents can make a huge difference. Meeting our teenagers’ deepest needs, setting healthy boundaries, helping to develop their emotional health and teaching them how to make good choices takes skill and dedication. Taking time to reflect on our end goal can help us to build our relationship with our teenagers now.

Revival In The Mountains – The Ba’Kelalan Miracle
In 1987, deep in the jungles of Sarawak, in the village of Ba’Kelalan, home to the Lun Bawang tribe, you might have stumbled upon a young Chinese man from West Malaysia. He was an odd sight, so one would be forgiven for wondering what had brought him there, close to the border of Kalimantan, Indonesia.
The man is today Pastor Philip Siang, a man with a big heart for tribal people both in East & West Malaysia. Back then, Siang had a keen interest in what God was doing in the nation, and wanted to travel around to learn more. When he heard about a great revival that happened at Ba’Kelalan, he naturally decided to go there. When he reached his destination, he felt that he belonged there.
As a West Malaysian, he couldn’t stay long, but he soon returned there, this time as a student of the local Bible school He quickly integrated into the community and soon became an interpreter. He was a friend and brother to many who had experienced the revival, and was witness to its widening impact …….
But God “chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong” (1 Cor 1:27). As Siang further says, “God prepared the Lun Bawangs because of their simplicity. The Bible says, ‘Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.’ These are people who are meek. They are warriors who fight not with carnal weapons, but with weapons of righteousness, gentleness, goodness, faith, steadfastness, and truth.”
Siang has more stories of the Ba’Kelalan revival, but this article cannot hold all those stories. Since his early years there, he has continued to witness the wondrous workings of God wherever he goes. Yet Siang believes that there’s much more that God can and will do, be it in Ba’Kelalan or elsewhere.
“I’ve not seen nor heard the Lord personally, or touched Him personally, but I’ve seen His footprints, His works. And still I’ve seen very little,” he concludes.
(Adapted from Asian Beacon, June-July 2014 Vol 46 No 3)
Sunday, (Aug 30) – We are facing the worst economic crisis in the nation, with the ringgit at its weakest level since the Asian financial crisis in 1997, and losses continue to pile up. Pray that we will remember that God is our refuge and our strength, so we should not fear – no matter what happens in the economic world or to our personal investments. Pray that we will look to Him and trust Him to provide for all our needs. Pray that this will be the time for us to examine and change our priorities – that we must not seek our refuge in gold or foreign currency but to place our hope in the Lord alone. Pray that this crisis will draw us closer to the Lord, that we will trust, love and hope in Him more.
Monday, (Aug 31) – Pray for the Nation: Praise God for watching over Malaysia for 58 years since we gained independence as a nation. Offer thanksgiving to Him for His faithfulness, grace and mercy towards Malaysia all these years. Pray that He will continue to show His protection and favour upon our nation as we go through the most crucial period of our history. Pray that He will restore order, righteousness, justice, peace, racial harmony, religious freedom, and above all, a clean and transparent government that will uphold the Federal Constitution and ensure justice and protection for all the rakyat, regardless of race and religion.
Tuesday, (Sept 1) – Praise God for Sunday School Sunday which we celebrated last Sunday (August 30, 2015), for all the children in our Sunday School. Pray that they will continue “to grow in wisdom and stature, in favour with God and man.” (Luke 2:52). Pray that Christian parents will take their task of raising up their children in the ways of the Lord seriously, and role model and teach them constantly and conscientiously. Pray for God’s anointing and wisdom upon the Sunday School teachers as they teach the children. Pray also for the 12-year olds who will be sitting for their UPSR examinations (September 8-10, 2015), for good health and that they will be able to do their best in the exams.
Wednesday, (Sept 2) – Pray for the Church in Malaysia: (a) that we will have learnt our lesson, and never again be complacent and neglect our responsibility to pray and intercede for our nation; (b) that we will be true disciples of Christ, pursuing godliness in all areas of our lives; (c) that we will be involved in nation building – speaking and working for righteousness and justice, racial & religious harmony, eradicating poverty (when and where we can), promoting wholesome values in families, and fighting for the rights of the marginalised and downtrodden in society; (d) that we will be passionate about sharing the love of Christ and His Gospel to those who do not know Him.
Thursday, (Sept 3) – Pray for XEE Semester 12 that begins on Sunday (September 6, 2015). Praise God for all those who have signed up, and pray that more people will sign up. Pray for strength and alertness for both the participants, trainers and facilitators as the sessions will be held in the afternoon after the Sunday Worship Service. Pray for commitment from everyone who will be attending. Pray that God’s hand and blessing will be upon XEE Semester 12 as we obey His mandate to go and share the Gospel with those who are lost.
Friday, (Sept 4) – Pray for the TRAC: The TRAC Joint Board Meeting will be held in Cameron Highlands (September 11-13, 2015). This annual meeting is where the various TRAC Boards come for a period of evaluation and programme planning for the year ahead. Pray for God’s wisdom upon the TRAC President as he leads this meeting from the helm. Pray that all the Boards will flow in line the Mission and Vision of TRAC.

Saturday, (Sept 5) – Pray for the World: North Korea is going through one of the most severe droughts in recent history, which is severely affecting food security in the country. The Church suffers too because Christian families are under lot of pressure to find food and they struggle to survive.
