What Is Your Current Storm?

What is your current storm? What is that circumstance that keeps overwhelming you? That situation that feels like it keeps flooding your boat or potentially drowning you? This
can be something big, or small. It could be something you’ve had to face today… over the past week or months, or even something you’ve been facing for years. What is your storm?

Who is in your boat? Who are the people you surround yourself with? Name 3-5 of the people you spend the most time with. Are you all travelling in the same direction (do they support you in your walk with Christ?) or are they arguing with you about how to steer the boat? (Do they bring you down, are a bad influence on you, or lead you into a more negative outlook on life?).

Is Jesus in your boat? Are you spending time with the One who knows the waters? He knows the way, He owns the boat, He has the map. Are you asking Him for guidance? Are you asking Him to teach you how to control the boat in rough waters? You can have all the right people in your boat – but if Jesus isn’t in your boat, you won’t be able to face the storms.

How are you reacting to your storm? In the story of Jesus calming the storm in the Gospel of Mark, when the disciples woke Jesus up, He responded, “Do you still have no faith?” At first this was jarring to me… doesn’t He understand they are about to drown? But then I realized it wasn’t because they woke Jesus up… it was how. They said, “Do you not care?!”…

Our initial reaction to our storm might be to blame God and assume He doesn’t care about us but we need to remember that Jesus is in our boat. He is in the storm with us and we can approach Him. We can ask Jesus for help through prayer. Jesus may calm the storm for us, or He may just help us ride the waves better until the storm passes. A calm sea never made a skilled sailor – we will have trouble in this world. Once this storm passes, we will face another one. It is better to learn how to sail through the storms so you are stronger and more skilled when you face the next one.

Are you accessing Jesus’ peace? Are you demanding Jesus to end your struggle or are you asking Him to help you navigate through it with a good heart attitude? In the midst of the storm, Jesus was modeling a position of rest. He was modeling peace! We have access to this same peace Jesus was experiencing in the midst of our own storms because of the Holy Spirit.

Do you know the Captain? The disciples still didn’t fully know who Jesus was. Jesus was slowly revealing Himself to them, and when they saw Him rebuke the wind and waves, they were filled with fear. Reverent fear of the Lord, seeing His power at work in our lives, gives us a glimpse at how holy, powerful, and mighty He is. Are you taking note of His presence in your day to day? Are you seeing how He calms the wind and waves in your life? Are you thanking Him and glorifying Him for all that He has done and continues to do out of His great love for you? Fear of the LORD is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. – Proverbs 9:10 (SHAUNA GOODISON)

Prayer List: October 25, 2020

Sunday, (Oct 25) – Even though the Covid-19 pandemic is like a massive storm, praise God that that this storm will not last forever and the Lord will use this time of testing for good, and as we persevere, He will empower us to come out of this trial victoriously. Pray that the Lord will teach us to see the storms in our lives from His perspective, knowing that He is producing in us endurance through the hard times, building our spiritual muscles, and strengthening our character. Pray that no matter what obstacles we are facing, we will choose joy. Pray that through our own struggles and pain, God will help us to be His vessels to offer comfort and strength to others who are hurting.

Monday, (Oct 26) – Pray for the Nation: Pray for God’s wisdom be upon those in the government, especially the PM and also the Agong, as they deliberate on tough issues for the nation. Pray that all politicians will stop their incessant politicking, and concentrate on working together to make good and appropriate decisions regarding the pandemic and the economy for the people who elected them into office. Pray also that the Selangor government will review the approval given to factories to operate in areas that have a risk of polluting rivers, and if necessary, for factories in such locations to be relocated to avoid another closure of water treatment plants, affecting supply to millions of consumers in the Klang Valley, who are already struggling with the conditional MCO.

Tuesday, (Oct 27) – Praise God for the LCEC Retreat that was held last weekend. This year has been very challenging for the leaders due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Pray that the leaders will renew their strength in the Lord, and be re-energised to love and serve God in the year ahead. Pray for God’s hedge of protection upon them and their family members. Pray that leaders will be actively involved in discipling and mentoring others. Pray that the plans formulated during the retreat are in line with God’s will for the church in the year ahead, and the Lord will use them to move the church forward in 2021.

Wednesday, (Oct 28) – The Annual General Meeting (a non-election year) of the Methodist Women (MW) in our church will be held on Saturday, October 31, 2020 via Zoom. Pray that the online meeting will flow smoothly, and there will be no hitches with the internet. Pray for God’s guidance upon Mrs Shakuntala Abraham, the MW President as she chairs the meeting. Pray for good attendance from the women in our church. Pray for God’s blessing upon the ministry of the MW in our church.

Thursday, (Oct 29) – Pray for God’s merciful intervention as the daily Covid-19 infections and new clusters continue to increase in our nation. The lack of awareness on Covid-19 in rural areas in Sabah – which has the highest number of cases in the country – has made it difficult for frontliners to treat positive cases in those areas. Pray for wisdom for the Ministry of Health to find solutions for such problems. Pray especially for the frontliners, including the police and prison personnel, as they are exposed to the Covid-19 virus in the line of duty. Pray that God will protect them from being infected, and grant them physical, mental and emotional strength as they serve the people.

Friday, (Oct 30) – Pray for TRAC: Praise God for Rev Joshua Hong and Rev Ng Swee Ming. Both will be officially retiring as TRAC pastors at the end of this year. Thank the Lord for these two men and for their faithful service in the ministry. God willing, they may continue to serve the Lord in the year ahead on a year-to-year basis. Pray for good health upon them and that the Lord will provide for their every need. Pray too for God’s protection upon their wives and children,

Saturday, (Oct 31) – Pray for the World: More than two dozen US states are reporting rising Covid-19 cases, and reports show a worsening of the pandemic across several regions of the country. Europe is fighting a seemingly unstoppable second wave of the virus with several countries imposing new restrictions in response to surging infections. Pray for the leaders of these nations to work together for the common good as the outbreak spreads. Pray that public health and government officials in these nations will act swiftly and decisively, with wisdom and compassion in service to their citizens.

“Repeat” Intervention

A sailor found himself in harsh and rough waters on the sea. Survival seemed scanty… but he called on the Lord. His prayers were heard, and he found himself washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He again prayed intensely to God, to rescue him. He managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect himself from the elements. One day, after having wandered all around for food, he arrived home only to find his little hut in flames, with smoke rising up to the skies. Stuck with disbelief, grief, and anger, he cried out: “GOD! How could you do this to me? You saved me from the shipwreck, but only to abandon me on this island! And now you have taken away my only means of survival.”

Early next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship approaching the island! It was a rescue ship that had come to rescue him! “How did you know I was here?” asked the man. “We saw your smoke signal,” they replied! The burnt hut – which the man had considered as a tragedy and a cruel act from God turned out to be the signal, by which people could come to rescue him. Even though he had received God’s rescuing hand the first time, from the shipwreck, he needed a “repeat” intervention, to realise and deepen the awareness of the providential presence of God in his life.

What about us? Are we also in need of a “repeat” intervention from the Lord for a greater commitment and dedication to our life of faith?

When Jesus arrived at Bethsaida, people brought to Him a blind man. Jesus began the process of healing that took place in two stages. Jesus first placed His hands on him and enquired whether he saw anything. The man replied: “I see people looking like trees and walking.” Then Jesus laid His hands a second time, and he saw clearly, with his sight restored. (Mk 8: 22-26)

This two-step process of healing is a great reminder to us that Jesus was in perfect control of the healing process, and that faith in Jesus is not a one-time event; but a process that could extend to different stages, that growing in faith in Him is a gradual process.

Each of us go through situations and moments in life when we are blind, when, even with a touch of the Lord, “we see people looking like trees and walking”. Problems and difficulties often clout our vision. Experiences of an encounter with the Lord do keep our faith alive, though feeble, In all such moments, we need another “touch” from the Lord, a “repeat” intervention from Him!

As Christians, who have been “in faith” for a long time, there are possibilities when our life of faith loses its charm and charisma, when our resolutions and promises lose touch of its initial fervour and zeal, when our commitment and dedication fail to have the required enthusiasm and passion.

In all such moments of “blind moments” and “blurred vision”, we need a “repeat” intervention from the Lord! Let us therefore, allow the Lord to touch us and experience His healing grace to lead us out of blindness and blurredness into clarity of faith and trust. (FR. JIJO MANJACKAL)

Prayer List: October 18, 2020

Sunday, (Oct 18) – Pray that God will deliver us from a partial, lopsided view of Christ, and that we will see Him clearly, and know Him fully even as we are fully known by Him. Pray that the Lord will heal us from spiritual blindness, and open and enlighten the eyes of our hearts that we might clearly see the circumstances in our lives from His perspective. Pray that God will shine His light in every area of our lives that have been blinded and remove the spiritual darkness. Pray that we will take off the “dark glasses” of our human thinking that we might have clearer vision to see things that are happening in the world today as God sees them.

Monday, (Oct 19) – Pray for the Nation: The Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah, has called on all parties, especially politicians, against sparking another political crisis at the time the nation is facing various problems caused by Covid-19. (Free Malaysia Today) Pray that all MPs and politicians will heed the royal call and put to an end the intense, unproductive and destructive politicking. Pray that they will choose to work together in a bipartisan effort to resolve the health and economic challenges in the nation instead of being obsessed with power.

Tuesday, (Oct 20) – Praise God that in spite of the spike of Covid-19 infections, and the conditional MCO imposed on targeted areas in certain areas in the red zones, the nation is better prepared to handle this crisis. Pray for wisdom upon the Ministry of Health and the government to work together to make appropriate and good decisions to ensure the safety of lives and the protection of livelihoods. Pray that God will grant all the healthcare frontliners physical, mental and emotional strength, and keep them and their family members healthy. Pray that the Lord will bring down the number of infections in Selangor, KL, Putrajaya, Taiping, and especially Sabah. Pray that the virus will be curbed and no new red zones nor new clusters will emerge.

Wednesday, (Oct 21) – Praise God that employers and employees in the Klang Valley are readjusting to the 2-week conditional MCO well because ot the experience they gained from the first round in March. Praise God that business and industrial sectors are allowed to operate, and pray that those involved will be vigilant and take stringent steps to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus. As schools are closed in the Klang Valley and other red zone areas, pray that the students will adapt well as they go back to online lessons. Pray also that the Ministry of Higher Education will give clear directives for higher learning institutions where the students are involved in international examinations.

Thursday, (Oct 22) – Praise God for the Raub hostel for OA students: Haknook Jenang (House of Love), that the 26 students are settling in well. Pray that the students are aware of, and appreciate the good purposes of the hostel, and will be motivated to study hard. Praise God for Swee Yin, the warden, and Han Leyek, the assistance warden who have both taken on this job as a mission field, and pray that God will grant them wisdom and grace as they undertake the spiritual growth of the students, Pray that the students will experience a real and deep encounter with Jesus. Pray that God will provide the hostel with a van driver who will also double up as a security guard and maintenance personnel.

Friday, (Oct 23) – Pray for TRAC: Recently, TRAC Executive Board made an unprecedented decision to make the 45th Session TRAC fully online on November 15, 2020. Pray that IT part will be settled as now each District in TRAC will have to set up hubs for official delegates to gather in. This is also dependent on whether CMCO becomes MCO. Pray that we will not go back to MCO, and that the IT connections will run smoothly, especially since there are important elections to be done.

Saturday, (Oct 24) – Pray for the World: In Thailand, thousands of people defied the government’s protest ban, and demonstrated against the government in Bangkok last week. Pray that God will give wisdom to the authorities to settle the problem peacefully. Pray also that God will keep the people safe as many of them were not wearing masks, nor practicing physical distancing during the demonstration.
