Trust in the Lord

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3: 5-6 ESV

 

With the spread of COVID cases in Singapore over the last few days, the government here has decided to reintroduce some restrictions to social gatherings and international travel.

 

Many of our church leaders are having emergency meetings today to decide whether or not to continue with physical services or move online once again. We pray that our leaders will trust the Lord to make straight their paths and grant them the wisdom to choose the best course of action for their respective churches.

 

As a school, EAST will be affected by these new restrictions also. Heavily restricted travel into Singapore will affect our overseas admissions and Extension Centre Staff. We pray for the Lord to help us in overcoming these hurdles placed suddenly before us.

 

Individually, these new restrictions will affect us in varying magnitudes. Be it having to face the possibility of delaying a marriage ceremony, or something smaller, we need to look to the Lord to guide our decisions and choices over these next three weeks. If there is any way that EAST can pray for you, we welcome you to let us know here.

Prayer Pointers – 15 April 2021

 

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” – Philippians 4:6, ESV

We have a loving and all-knowing God, who hears our prayer and provide for all our needs. We are to abide in Him, share our needs, and trust in Him to provide for us. We are, therefore, grateful for His calling and raising various stakeholders to minister and serve with EAST.

Thank God for:

  • Calling and raising all our stakeholders in their ministry to EAST

Pray for:

  • God’s blessing and protection for EAST board members, ministry financial partners, and field education supervisors
  • Field education supervisors to effectively guide, mentor and minister to students under their charge

 

Pray for all

 

1 Timothy 2:1 ESV: “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people.”

 

Paul’s instruction here is simple, pray for everyone, everywhere. Not forgetting about our neighbours as we draw close to God in our prayers.

 

The verse is followed soon after with 1 Timothy 2:3-4 which states “This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.“.

 

Do you have any blind spots in your prayers? It can be difficult to identify things we are missing when we pray alone, and finding a partner to pray with can be helpful in finding our blind spots.

 

Paul calls us to pray for all. Today can think of something or someone you haven’t prayed for in a while and bring it to God.
