Last Sunday, the monthly prayer was conducted at Lundu, a small town about 2 hours drive from Kuching. It has been the Kuching Minister Fellowship's (KMF) objective to pray and bless the churches outside of Kuching city. Last month it was held at SIB in Bau.
It was encouraging to see a few hundred Christians from various denominations attending this prayer meeting. Of late we have been witnessing the coming together of various denomination for a common cause, that is to pray as One body. Despite our traditional differences we know the central focus should be Jesus our Lord.
Church members from Kuching were also there to pray with our brothers and sisters in Lundu. Churches from Lundu were e.g SIB, Anglican, Catholic, and independent churches.
We prayed for our nation, political leaders from the government and opposition parties to uphold justice and to carry out policies in righteous manners. The pastors from Lundu were asked what were their important needs amongst the Christians. A pastor said that we need to pray for the young people who are very much involved in worldly matters and not interested in church, she also requested to pray for them to be kept away from vices. One pastor also requested for prayers for the pre-school pupils who are alleged to be taught Islamic ways in school. Recently there are news on this subject in the local newspapers as well as on-line news. To read this article click on the title of this post.
Praise God that all churches are coming together to pray and uphold each other. We are also praying for revival to come to Sarawak.
