Sunday, (Jan 5) – Jesus was intentional about discipleship, spending 3 years of His life to invest Himself in the lives of 12 men, giving them a call to follow Him, a command to love as He has loved, and a commission to make disciples. Pray that the Holy Spirit will work within the hearts and minds of all of us in Klang Wesley to commit to the things that are important to God. Pray that as our church has come up with a series of discipleship workshops/seminars throughout this year, our church members will respond positively, and make it a priority to attend these workshops/seminars to help them in their personal growth and spiritual formation that will strengthen them in their Christian walk.
Monday, (Jan 6) – An estimated total of 4.67 million students (primary and secondary) attended the first day of school, as the national schools reopened last Wednesday/Thursday for 2020.

Pray also for the children who are moving from primary to secondary education, that they will also be able to make the adjustment. Pray for God’s hand of protection upon all the school children, that the schools will be vigilant regarding the safety of the children, especially in the area of school bullying.
