Sunday, (Sept 17) – A lot of life comes down to money – whether it controls us or whether we make God our Master instead. Pray that we will deliberately ask God to resume His rightful place over our money. Pray that He will forgive us for the fear of want that drives us, for the self-centered love of luxury that corrupts us, and for the lust for power and acceptance that motivates our lifestyles. Pray that we will learn to be content with our circumstances, and that the Lord will show us how to manage the things He has given us in a way that reflects trust and faith in His goodness. Pray that He will help us become trustworthy stewards of the things He has entrusted to us.
Monday, (Sept 18) – Praise God that we have completed the NECF 40 Days Fast & Prayer.

Pray that God will shake His people out of the state of nominalism into a radical commitment to Christ. Pray especially for the believers in Sabah and Sarawak that those who have wandered from the faith will return to the Lord in repentance.
Tuesday, (Sept 19) – Praise God for the newly formed CG in our Orang Asli (OA) Ministry that the OAs are committed to attending the CG.
