Pray for Boldness

Day 16 (22 August 2018, Wednesday)

Acts 4:29 And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness.

The church in the times of Acts went through many persecutions.  The disciples were threatened, captured, charged in Christ openly etc., yet they chose to pray.  The beginning of the original text of this verse says that:  “And now, Lord, look upon their threats …”  The disciples were filled by the Holy Spirit with great power, but they sought God in their persecution and asked for boldness to speak His Word and also for God to stretch out His hand to heal and to perform signs and wonders.

The following verse says that “And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit moved when they sought God in unity, and they experienced signs and wonders.  Thereafter, the Gospel spread from Jerusalem to the end of the earth even when they faced greater persecution.  Signs and wonders and healing and deliverance constantly occurred in the early church.

We might not encounter the great persecution of the early church in our country, but we do feel pressurized and obstructed somehow.  We have to pray for the gospel to be made known to all, and we have to trust in the name of Jesus to gain the courage to speak His Word and to stretch out our hands to heal the sick.  The name of Jesus shall bring forth supernatural signs and wonders!

Brothers and sisters, this is God’s given authority to Christians, and the key to turn the city upside down.  We possess the boldness to heal and to perform signs and wonders when we receive the supernatural faith from God!

Pray for the Heads & Governments of Pahang & Johor

Faithful in their Office & Calling

Daniel 6:4 Then the presidents and the satraps sought to find a ground for complaint against Daniel with regard to the kingdom, but they could find no ground for complaint or any fault, because he was faithful, and no error or fault was found in him.

Show No Partiality in their Leadership

Leviticus 19:15 “You shall do no injustice in court.  You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbour.
