Sunday, (Mar 24) – Thank Christ for rescuing us with His grace. Pray that as His grace has touched our lives, we will let it flow to those around us. Pray that we will sweep aside any prejudices we have against others, and learn to treat people like Jesus does – with love and compassion. During this season of Lent, pray that God will open our eyes to see the old wineskins in our lives that are hindering us from drawing closer to Him, and be transformed into the people He wants us to be. Pray that the Lord will make us into new wineskins, flexible, pliable and able to receive the new wine He desires to pour into our lives.
Monday, (Mar 25) – Youth Camp 2019 will be held in Cameron Highlands from Wednesday to Saturday (March 27-30, 2019). Pray for journey mercies and God’s protection upon all who are attending the camp. Pray that the Lord will move powerfully in every single heart, that His Spirit will transform the lives of everyone. Pray that during the times of worship, God will draw the youths into His presence, and the love of the Father will be poured out into their hearts. Pray for the teaching sessions, that God’s Word will fall mightily into soft hearts, that the youths will grow in wisdom, and their love for Christ will be fanned into flame above and beyond all rivals. Pray also for the pre-believer youths that the power of the Gospel will bring salvation into their hearts and lives.
Tuesday, (Mar 26) – Pray for the Adult Bible Classes that began last Sunday (March 17, 2019) and will continue for another 3 Sundays. Pray for more people to come for these classes.

Pray that the participants will be “rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” (Colossians 2:7).
Wednesday, (Mar 27) – Pray for the Nation: Pray against individuals or political parties that heap up racial and religious issues and sentiments to gain sympathy and support for their selfish political agenda. Pray for a paradigm shift for the rakyat to think of themselves as Malaysians rather than race, to embrace religious freedom as a way of life for our multi-racial and multi-religion Malaysia. Pray that Christians will set the example in the way they relate to people of different race or religion.
