Sunday, (Mar 25) – As we enter into Holy Week, give thanks to God for sending His Son and paving the way for our lives to be set free through Jesus’ death on the cross. Pray that we will give priority to spend time in quiet reflection, worship and prayer this week. Pray that the Lord will show us how to follow Him for His glory and not our own selfish motives. Pray that He will help us stay strong and true to Him, not to follow after the voice of the crowds and be swayed by its approval, but to press in close to Him, to hear His voice, and seek after Him alone.
Monday, (Mar 26) – Pray for the Nation: Pray that God will watch over Malaysia during GE14.

Pray that voters will take their role seriously and will cast their ballots on polling day without much ado. Pray that all those on duty under the Electoral Commission throughout Malaysia will carry out their tasks in a fair manner and the whole process of voting will run smoothly.
Tuesday, (Mar 27) – Pray for the World: Pray that the Christians in persecuted churches throughout the world will have opportunities to come together to celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ during Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

Pray that the Lord’s presence and the power of His Spirit will strengthen and encourage all these believers to continue to persevere in their faith.

Pray for good weather and for our church members to set aside time to come to worship Christ and commemorate His institution of the New Covenant through the Last Supper. Pray for a humble spirit that is open and sensitive to the Holy Spirit.

Friday, (Mar 30) – Pray for TRAC: Praise God for the dedication of the new sanctuary and building facilities of Trinity Methodist Church, PJ on March 18, 2018. The entire project (inception of idea to completion) took 16 years. Further thanksgiving to God that the Certificate of Completion & Compliance from the authorities was obtained 2 days before the dedication service. Pray that the church members will rise up to worship God for who He is as now there will be only one Sunday morning service (instead of 2) and the style of worship will be one.
