Tuesday, (Apr 16) – Pray for the World: As we celebrate Easter this coming Sunday (April 21, 2019), pray that the glorious message of Christ’s resurrection will encourage those who continue to face harassment, discrimination, violence, and persecution that they will hold firm in the assurance of the living hope, and be sustained through the comfort of the Holy Spirit. Pray that their perseverance will be a testament to the precious love and grace of Christ.
Wednesday, (Apr 17) – Pray for the Maundy Thursday Service tomorrow.

Thursday, (Apr 18) – Pray for the Good Friday Service tomorrow, for good weather and smooth traffic flow so that people will be able to come for the service.

Pray also for the Good Friday Watch (9:00am – 12noon), that our church members, especially those who are not working, will come to seek the Lord in worship and prayer.
Friday, (Apr 19) – Pray for TRAC: Pray for all TRAC churches during the Holy Week period, especially for the special worship services on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Generally, the church attendances are greater for these services, as compared to the normal Sunday services. Pray that God’s message of the cross and the empty tomb of Christ will be powerful. Pray that those who lack faith and commitment to Christ will turn towards Him and find the exuberant joy of loving Christ beyond all limiting factors. Pray for a spirit of love and forgiveness to flow again, especially between injured parties as we all look towards God who first loved us and gave His precious Son to die as our atoning sacrifice at Golgotha.

Pray that the service will bear testimony of the power of the resurrection. Pray for own Easter Service, for the Creative Arts Ministry Team as it presents the Easter message. Pray that the Holy Spirit will work powerfully through the presentation, and hearts will be touched and lives transformed as we are reminded of the love of God for us as seen through the life of Christ. Pray too that pre-believers will come and be blessed by the Service, and come to know Christ as Savior and Lord.
