Prayer by Thomas Merton

 

My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going.

I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end.

Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.

But I believe that the desire to love as Christ loved does in fact please you.

And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing.

I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire.

And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore, I will trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death.

I will not fear, for you are ever with me and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.

~ Thomas Merton

Song for SG55 – One

Enjoy this newly composed National Day song by HeartDriven Music, words and music by Ryan Kong.

 

Taken from the Song Story, shared by the composer, Ryan Kong:

This National Day, HeartDriven Music, Project Providence and the Alliance of Guest Workers Outreach (AGWO) are collaborating to release this song, ONE, as a rallying cry for every one of us to play our part in whatever capacity we can, as one nation. While we look forward to resuming our normal lives again, let us not forget the life lessons which Covid-19 has taught us. Let us not waste this opportunity to go the extra mile, to reach out in love beyond what is convenient for us.

Project Providence helps to house homeless and stranded foreigners in Singapore. AGWO aims to reach out to all guest workers in Singapore – to care for them and cater to their essential needs, while also adopting a spirit of hospitality for a welcoming environment that is free of discrimination and prejudice.

Loving Singapore Block by Block

On the eve of Singapore’s National Day long weekend, the Day of His Power event was held online for the first time. A number of notable church leaders in Singapore shared from their hearts about the state of the church and missions in Singapore. Pastor Lawrence Chua from Living Sanctuary Brethren Church shared the strategy of “Loving Singapore Block by Block” as his church has sought to be a good neighbour over the years.

Jason Wong from the fathering movement, Elijah 7000, also pondered about Singapore as a land of beautiful houses yet with broken homes. Truly, today more than ever, as believers, we need to be sharing the hope we have in Christ to rebuild the broken homes in our beautiful nation. Happy National Day Weekend to all Singaporeans!

Watch the full Day of His Power event recorded “live” here and read the article published by Thir.st for more insights on a segment of the event that focused on the family here.
