Not Letting Down Your Prayer Shield
Dear beloved Brothers and Sisters in NLRC,
We are well into the second half of 2020. With the pandemic, it is a trying time for many in the world. We give thanks to the Lord everyday for His favour and protection upon us and our loved ones every day and in every way. I thank the Lord for you in keeping your faith in the Lord vibrant and fervent. It was reflected in your attendance at online prayer and services during the months of lockdown. This is indeed commendable.
In this pandemic and lockdown, many things changed. I know the spiritual life of many have changed for the better. Many testimonies from our NLRC churches have been heard Sunday after Sunday as I follow the services of our churches online. I never cease to find joy and encouragement from them.
In crossing over this period, know what we are in the middle of. Keep abreast of what is in the world.
Pray whenever you are in the company of brothers and sisters. Fellowship must lead to prayer one for another and for what the Lord puts into your heart. Otherwise the makan-makan is incomplete.
- Keep our prayer alert to uphold our brothers and sisters and our families in health and at work.
- Keep our prayer alert to uphold our dads and mums in our families. They must be strong in the Lord.
- Keep our church business people to experience special favour and grace amidst economic challenges.
I heard testimonies of our business people who had taken my message of the kingdom to heart. Today, despite many in business hardships, they experience business upturn. This is like Isaac who planted in the time of famine and reaped a hundred-fold harvest. Only God can do things like that. In a particular testimony, that brother says he knew his business is for God and His kingdom purposes. His business volume is so high he has to turn down some. He cannot cope. This is kingdom business!!!
NLRC, don’t forget! The Lord has revealed to us about His kingdom, about your kingdom family, and now about building spiritually strong dads to lead your family. You pray for him, and he will rise up!
My sincere blessings over all of you!
