A Day of Prayer for The Nation Poster

大家都熟悉创世记第18章所多玛和蛾摩拉被毁灭的事件。试想这两个城市完全被歼灭是因为她们的罪恶满盈或是因为义人数目不足呢?亚伯拉罕为这两个城市代求,若是上主真的找到十位义人,历史是否就改写了呢?我们知道上主的恩典永远超越罪恶的肆虐,我们这称为上主名下的子民,是否愿意付上代价认真的为国家代祷求恩呢?马来西亚的国情和国民是否等待着我们基督信徒向天上的父的祈求?

是否

等待着我们马来西亚的教会同心合一的祷告呢?

今年我们众教会的领袖定了624日(星期五至星期日)为为国家祷告日。呼吁众教会特别腾出24个小时为国家祷告。若能以崇拜开始或以崇拜结束,那更为佳。我们在此寄上从王怀德会督收到的崇拜/祷告集会礼仪和祷告事项供大家使用。请大家教导、鼓励及动员会友们有实际行动地去为国家祷告求恩。此时此刻的祷告岂不直接影响马来西亚的前路、教会和我们子孙的前程吗?

我们也印了“为国家祷告日”的海报,请多多宣传推动。谢谢!

愿认识耶和华荣耀的知识充满马来西亚,好像水充满洋海一般。

We are pretty familiar with the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah recorded in Genesis 18. Think about it, were the two cities destroyed because of the fullness of their sins or because the number of righteous was insufficient? Abraham interceded for the two cities, were the Lord to find 10 righteous within the two cities then, would history be different? We know the truth that the raging of sins could never overtake the grace of God. As people called by God’s name, are we willing to pay price to seriously intercede for our nation? Is the condition of our nation and her citizens not awaiting the intercession of Christians to our Heavenly Father? And the prayer of unity of the Malaysian Church?

This year, the leaders of our churches have set June 2nd – 4th (Fri-Sun) as “A Day of Prayer for The Nation” calling all churches to set aside 24 hours to intercede for the nation. It would be good to arrange to start this 24-hour prayer time in a Service or end with a Service. We attached herewith the bilingual suggested Prayer Outline for a church service/prayer gathering received from Bishop Ong’s office for your use. Please educate, encourage and mobilise our members to take action to intercede for our nation. Will not the prayers being offered at such a time as this directly affect the future of our nation, the church and our future generations?

The poster for “A Day of Prayer for the Nation” has been printed for publicity. Kindly promote and mobilise. Thank you!

May the knowledge of the glory of the Lord fill Malaysia as the waters cover the sea!

合神心意的教会 A Church after God’s Own Heart
