DAY OF HIS POWER!
Twenty years ago, LoveSingapore launched its first 40.Day season of prayer with fasting. God's instruction was clear. Start on July First. So, we started counting. Bingo, the 40th day falls on August 9th, National Day! We literally exclaimed: God, you are so smart! There's no better time to culminate a national 40.Day prayer call than our nation's birthday.
God also said three things: Put Your House in Order. Do Not Run On Empty. Be transparent. Today, we believe that God is still saying these three things. They are as relevant as ever given the fact that the Singapore Church (though larger in number now than 20 years ago) is not necessarily a humbler, holier, or hungrier community today. We are not a failed Church, but we all know that we are not at our optimal best for God and for nation. We have fallen short in many ways, especially in our relationship with God.
Like the rest of Singapore, we want happiness, we want prosperity, we want progress, we want peace, we want love. Ask any Christian, and many will say we want God's gifts, we want revival. But do we want God? Did you know that the Lord whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God (Exodus 34:14). He yearns jealously for the spirit that he has made to dwell in us. (James 4:5)
This Day of His Power, let us humble ourselves and wholeheartedly return to God. Will you help us inform and mobilise your congregation to participate? Psalm 110:3 says: Your people shall be willing in the day of Your power. We look forward to praying with God-hungry believers, young and old, from diverse church streams:
See you there!
