Design by Koh Aitee


“Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.” – Psalms107:6, ESV

Thank God that we can come to Him by faith, trusting Him to deliver us when we are in trouble. Even when we are not in need, we can always come to the Lord in thanksgiving prayer. Shalom.

Prayer Pointers – 25 March 2021


“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.” – Philippians 4:4, ESV
What a privilege to be able to rejoice in our Lord, from whom all blessings flow and who protect us from all danger and harm. May He grant us supernatural joy and shalom peace as we place our trust in Him through all circumstances of life.

Pray in accordance to His will


1 John 5:14 “And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.”

To “pray according to his will” simply means to pray following the plans that God has laid out for us in his word. Ephesians 5:15-17 “Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.”

As long as we do so, God will hear our prayer. Think back to your prayers this last week, have you prayed in accordance to His will? If not, what changes will you make to the way you pray?

Do not be anxious, find peace in God

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


Similar to Matthew 6:25, Peter echos Jesus’ instructions to not be anxious about anything. Turn to God for everything; from the clothes we wear, the food we eat. In prayer, bring Him all our thanksgiving and requests.


Today, EAST held our first eOpen House and moments before going live, we encountered some technical difficulties. While we figured out the problem, the anxiety and panic began to build. At this moment, we prayed for God to be with us and if he willed it, to help us execute this eOpen House to the best of our ability. The problem was resolved, and the eOpen House was carried out and completed smoothly.


Sometimes, it will be difficult to stop ourselves from feeling anxious. It is very human to panic in the face of uncertainty. This verse from Paul and Jesus’ words in Matthew reminds us to stop constantly looking forward and around us during these times and instead look up, and find peace in our God who will guard our hearts and minds.

A personal relationship with God


In Hebrews, “draw near” is frequently used to mean approaching God. Such an act requires one’s sins are forgiven through the sacrificial and an intermediary, such as a high priest.


Fortunately, as Christians, we have the privilege of a personal relationship with God. We are free to approach and be personal with Him through the death of his Son Christ Jesus. We should not doubt our relationship with Him. With confidence and without shame, we will receive mercy and grace in our times of need.


Have there been things you haven’t spoken to God about recently? Be it due to shame or guilt? Or even because you feel it is too insignificant to pray about? This verse tells us to bring all these to God in our prayers, to treat is as a most personal relationship in our lives,
