Sunday, (Nov 24) – Praise God that He has placed each of us in the Body of Christ, and has given each one gifts to build up the Body, His church. As the Lord has no greater respect or regard for one person over another, pray that we will not have a higher regard for some people, but not for others, and learn to recognise that everyone in the Body of Christ is important. Pray that every one of us will make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace in our homes, church and communities. Pray that God will give us grace to diligently seek after all those things that are well-pleasing in His sight, so that we may live in unity – one with the other, to His praise and glory.
Monday, (Nov 25) – The year end school holidays have just begun. Pray for families as they go on vacation – for journey mercies, good family bonding, and time to relax and recharge their batteries. Pray for the children and youths who will be going for Christian camps that God will nurture the soil of their hearts and grant them a greater sensitivity to the Holy Spirit, so that they will grow in the knowledge and grace of Jesus Christ. Pray that they will experience an ongoing transformation by having their minds renewed. Pray for God’s hand of protection upon them wherever they go.
Tuesday, (Nov 26) – Pray for the Nation: The Prime Minister said that a Cabinet reshuffle has ultimately become a necessity as critics have attributed the defeat of the Tanjung Piai by-election to underperforming ministers. Nonetheless, he warned that a Cabinet reshuffle may not be the answer to the government’s problems. In the event of a Cabinet reshuffle, pray for God’s wisdom upon the Prime Minister to come up with a Cabinet that will be competent and focused on rebuilding the nation.
Wednesday, (Nov 27) – Pray for the Kids’ Holiday Camp. Pray for more children to register for the camp, as around 110 children have registered so far. Pray for God’s guidance and wisdom upon the teachers and helpers as they prepare for the lessons, games, etc. in the camp, and for the worship teams as they practice for the worship sessions. Pray for God’s anointing upon the speakers, Pastor Steven Low and Brother Ponraj Navamani, as they prepare for the lessons. Pray also for the children, that God will enable them to understand the lessons, especially for those who do not understand English very well.
Thursday, (Nov 28) – Praise God that 3 of the Orang Asli (OA) children who will be staying in the Raub Orang Asli Hostel next year passed their UPSR exams. Pray that they will continue to do well as they move to secondary education. Pray also for Pastor Rizal, who works with the OA community in Pulau Carey, that the Lord will continue to bless the ministry, and that many of the OA there will come to faith in Christ. Pray that Pastor Rizal, and Pastors Reso and Norraini (in Kg Lallang & Kg Kerchau) will always be rooted in Jesus, and they will minister to the OA out of their abiding in Christ.
Friday, (Nov 29) – Pray for TRAC: Thank God for the smooth-running and success of the 44th Session TRAC at PDMC (November 16-18, 2019). Rev Chang Choy Quin will be transferred to Nusajaya Methodist Church (Johor Baru), and Rev Eric Tan will take her place as pastor in Life Methodist Church, Puchong. Pray for Rev Chang’s move, as both the church and the pastor have grown to love one another over her three and a half years of ministry in Puchong. Pray that Rev Chang will settle in well in her new church in 2020, especially since the potential for student ministry is great in Nusajaya. Pray for good relationship to be made with the leaders and members there.
Saturday, (Nov 30) – Pray for the World: Thailand is more than 90% Buddhist, and Buddhism is seen as an essential part of Thai identity. Christians are estimated to make up less than 1% of the population. Churches and evangelists can operate freely in Thailand, but converts are often marginalised and rejected for having embraced a “foreign” religion. Pray that those who have lost their families by leaving Buddhism to follow Christ will continue to be faithful to Him, and by their lifestyle and love, will win over their families for Christ.
