Message from Pastor-in-Charge, Ps. Sim Shiu Kee
The theme for this year 40 days fast and pray is based John 15;7-8 He says, ”If you abide in me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this my Father is glorified that you bear much fruit; so you will be my disciples.
The key to a fruitful prayer life is to abide in Him. It is crucial that
we grasp this and live it out because when our prayers are answered the
work of our hands flourish, showing the world that we are his disciples.
Most importantly, this brings God glory.
As Jesus‘ disciples, we ought to always be like our Master, pray fruitful prayers.
NECF (National Evangelical Christian Fellowship) 40 day fast and pray
started 2001 until now. This prayer movement has been mobilizing the
Church of Malaysia to pray and fast for our nation for the last 15
years. The call on Isaiah 62;6 The prophet declares
“ l have set watchmen on your walls. O Jerusalem; they shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent, and give him no rest till he establishes and makes Jerusalem her praise of the earth.
Believers in the church of Malaysia are now called to join hands and rise up for the round-the-clock prayer in the light of our recent disasters and tough challenges threatening the nation and the church.
We encourage and challenge everyone to take part. You can fast
a meal a day, and pray according to the 40-Day Fast & Prayer booklet. Booklet is available from the office. We will also be using the prayer booklet in our weekly Monday prayer meeting, cell group meeting and weekend services. We have no excuse not to pray. Because when we fast and pray, it softens our hearts and to turn to God. Let us as a church of Malaysia, be united as one body and spirit to cry out to Him for our nation to prepare the way for God’s sovereign move to align His purposes and His will for Malaysia in the day to come (NECF 40 Day Fast and Pray booklet).
May God move mightily in our lives as we walk with Him in this
40 Day Fast and Pray. Amen.
