Sunday, (Mar 18) – Praise God for all the people who came for the first week of the 21-Day Prayer Meetings. As we enter into the second week, pray that more people will make the effort to come, especially since the schools are having a one-week break. Pray for hearts to be sensitive to the presence and leading of the Holy Spirit, and to be in unity of purpose. As the prayer meetings will be held at night from Thursday, March 22, 2018 onwards, pray that people who find it difficult to come in the mornings will come for the night prayer meetings.
Monday, (Mar 19) – Praise God for the gift of godly friendship – for the joy, encouragement, and refreshment He gives us through our friends. Thank Him for the friends He has given us to walk with us through life here on earth. Pray that He will show us ways to love each other better and take away any fear we have of being authentic about our struggles. Pray that God will help us have open hearts that love the way He loves. Pray that if our friendships are tested at times, we will be quick to forgive one another. Thank God for knitting our hearts together with the people He knows will make us stronger. Above all, thank God for what a Friend we have in Jesus.
Tuesday, (Mar 20) – Pray for the Nation: Pray for GE14. As the nation anticipates that parliament will be dissolved soon, pray that the candidates will do their campaigning in a calm and civilized manner, and not viciously tear down the character of their opponents. Pray that the Holy Spirit will give wisdom to the rakyat to discern the candidates who have integrity, who are righteous, honest, sincere, diligent, and competent to lead the nation forward, promote racial harmony and religious freedom, are concerned for the welfare of the poor, and who will work to wipe out corruption and injustice in the land.
Wednesday, (Mar 21) – The Sunday School will be having the Pre-Easter Party on Sunday, March 24, 2018. Pray that the Lord will bless the programme planned by the team of teachers, and that everything will run smoothly. As many of the children have heard the Easter story innumerable times, pray that the Holy Spirit will touch these children in a very special way, and they will receive a fresh revelation of the death and resurrection of Jesus. Pray especially for the children and parents from non-church homes, that their hearts will be open to the Good News of Jesus. Continue to pray that more children will come consistently for Sunday School every week.
Thursday, (Mar 22) – As Holy Week begins in the coming week, pray that we will set aside time to reflect on the Passion of Christ, that because of His great sacrifice, we are acquitted of all guilt and sin. Pray that our church members will make time to come for the Holy Week services – Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter. Pray that our hearts will be open to what God desires of us, and that we will respond with gratitude and devotion to Christ and renew our commitment to Him.
Friday, (Mar 23) – Pray for TRAC: Pray for Living Hope Methodist Church in Kota Kemuning. The church has publicized the Alpha Series (February 2018) and has challenged church members to invite pre-believer family members and friends for the series. Pray that all church members will be convicted to invite as many people as they can for the inaugural session on April 22, 2018. Pray that the Holy Spirit will already begin convicting people of their need to draw close to God and ultimately put their trust in Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord. Pray for Rev Teoh Lee Yng and the leaders to be focused and united in wanting to see the glory of God shine in Kota Kemuning.
Saturday, (Mar 24) – Pray for the World: Pray that the people of Lebanon will continue to be merciful to refugees as poverty has become a problem and the country is under tremendous pressure.
