Kuching, May 2, 2013 – “The victory belongs to the Lord,” called Ps Luke Siva to the church at Good News Fellowship here tonight. With just days to the general election (GE13), the churches in Kuching are gathering for corporate prayer in the past few nights.
Joel 1:14 tells:
“Declare a holy fast; call a sacred assembly. Summon the elders and all who live in the land to the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord.”
In 2 Chronicles 7:14,
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land,” and
Esther 4:16 tells:
“Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.”
“Transformation begins with you and me. Let us consecrate our lives together and surrender our lives to God,” he said, as the people continued to pray.
Ps Jeffrey Wei from Good News Fellowship continued leading the prayer tonight, focusing on prayer for the election process. In the last four nights, the prayer focuses were on the nation, church, voters and candidates.
“Never ever in the history of Malaysia has the stakes been so high,” he said about the GE13. He also stirred the church to pray for a level playing field. Pray for God to give us a level playing field, he said.
Proverbs 11:1 tells, “The Lord detests dishonest scales, but accurate weights find favor with him.”
Tonight, the prayer points covered praying for the elections, including prayer for a clean, fair and safe election. The church pray that no Malaysians will be denied the right to vote, either through fraud or administrative negligence. Also, for no phantom or illegal migrants voters that could influence the outcome of the election.
The people also pray for issues of vote buying and disinformation, fair media reporting and for the people to discern the truth. For a fair election, SPR do their duties diligently and fairly, with fear of God and not man. Finally, pray for the candidates not to use religion and race to divide and incite the people; no violence and hatred but for the people to be united in love for the country.
Meanwhile, other pastors, leaders, and members are also gathered for the Kebaktian Suku- Suku Bangsa at First Baptist Church, Kota Sentosa for corporate prayer tonight.
On Saturday night, there will be a “Night to Dawn Prayer” prior to the election from 10pm to Sunday 7am at Certain Place, Good News Fellowship, Kuching.
