Sunday, (Aug 21) – Thank you, Lord, for giving us Your assurance and eternity defining truth in Your Word.

Monday, (Aug 22) – Pray that the church as a Spiritual community continues to be anchored on Christ and His Word, following His teaching and His value, through which we pursue a new way of life as Christ’s disciples, engaging with social and cultural issues so that Christ’s light shine through communities and nation. Pray that our theology, doctrines, faith system, and identity as religion are guarded and preserved from generation to generation.

Pray that God will protect them and their family from the devil’s schemes physically and spiritually.
