Sunday, (July 25) – Praise God for His Word that teaches us how to live as Christians in this fallen world. Pray for forgiveness for the times when we have not walked in humility, gentleness and with patience; when we have allowed pride and self-righteousness to have dominion over us and have walked haughtily with hearts blind to arrogance. Pray for forgiveness for the times we have exhibited harsh attitudes and rudeness. Pray that we will partner with the Holy Spirit to transform our hearts to be humble and gentle. Pray that the Lord will teach us to bear with one another in love. Pray that He will give us the grace and strength to eagerly seek to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace without compromising the truth in His Word.
Monday, (July 26) – Pray that Wesley Klang will be a church that would seek to honour God. Pray that the church will understand her call to be salt and light to the nation. Pray that we as a church will live our lives worthy of the calling we have received. Pray that we will draw closer to God each day by spending quality time with the Lord. Pray that we will not rush through our time with God, but that we will take time to linger in the presence of God. Pray also that we will learn to carry each other burdens during this difficult time.
Tuesday, (July 27) – Pray for God’s protection and intervention as the daily COVID-19 cases seem to escalate daily, with the highest numbers coming from the Klang Valley.

Pray for resilience and physical, mental and emotional strength for the medical frontliners as many are reaching breaking point because many hospitals, especially those in the Klang Valley, are hitting full capacity. Pray that the vaccination programme will continue to be speeded up. Pray also that the people who have been fully vaccinated will continue to comply with the SOPs and not behave as though the pandemic is over.
Wednesday, (July 28) – Pray for the Nation: Pray for the Parliament sitting that was reconvened on July 26, 2021.

Pray that the National Emergency Order will not be extended beyond August 1, 2021 so that rightful, accountable and effective governance can be restored. Pray that our MPs will be people of integrity and accountability, be trustworthy and true to their electorates.
