Prayer Concerns
a) Praise God for the awesome 35 Days of Worship Essentials 2014. Praise Him
for the vision of mobilizing the whole church to embark upon this spiritual
journey together. Praise Him for the Organising Task Force chaired by Ms
Serene Lai and the participation of over 300 children, youths and adults. Pray
that the 35 Days that we had spent on the development a deeper life of worship
and service will continue to grow in Christ.
b) Praise God in particular for the Evening of Praise (18 Oct 2014) where we
gathered as a Family in Christ for a special Service. All glory be to our Lord for
His love, blessings and the manner in which He has inspired us to continue to
worship Him and express our devotion to Him via sacrificial offering and
Micah 6:8 Engagements.
c) Continue to pray for all who are going through difficult trials. May the Lord
raise faith among us and declare that He is indeed the Sovereign Lord of us all!
d) May the Lord restore peace and bring about reconciliation among different
groups of people in countries such as Syria, Israel, Indonesia, Hong Kong etc…

What gifts or special abilities has God endowed upon you?

3.
What are your weaknesses?
4.
How do you plan to deal with those tasty temptations associated with your

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind.
And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when
you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
