用真理使他們成聖;的道就是真理。怎樣差我到世上來,我也怎樣差他們到世上去。

約翰福音十17-18

當神把我們分別出來,將使命交給我們時,我們要有三方面的禱告和行動:1. 無論在任何情況之下,都選擇真理,就是神的道。2. 願意讓神的真理把我們分別為聖,更新改變我們。3. 力做一個有使命的人。

1. 雖然現況不如我們的理想,如果神要教導我們做一個常常感恩的人,就求神幫助我們不單是個人的感恩,還要把握機會與教會弟兄姊妹一同慶祝及感恩。為下主日的感恩節崇拜、感恩見證分享會及感恩節聚餐祈禱,求神賜福,讓這天成為我們彼此祝福鼓勵的日子。

2. 感謝神帶領我們面對建堂這巨大的挑戰。求神幫助我們學懂以承擔、愛心付出、憑信心來處理我們的資源;並且在資源運用上盡心竭力地行出神的使命。

3. 當我們思考明年怎樣在資源使用上跟隨神時,求神幫助我們願意讓祂的真理使我們分別為聖地面對。

4. 當我們學習用信心來面對建堂的挑戰時,求神幫助我們能多禱告尋問、多禱告倚靠、多禱告得力,以致有信心勇氣踏上建堂的路。更求神幫助我們把握能一起同心合意祈禱的機會。

5. 為那些正在尋找盼望和指望的人祈禱,特別為正身處艱難困境中的香港居民及智利居民祈禱。求神的公義、憐憫臨到當地,叫擔驚受怕的人都能找到真正的盼望和出路。求神幫助當地教會的眾弟兄姊妹有從神而來盼望和指望,並且可以被神的真理激勵,活出神的使命,不但能彰顯神的真實及憐憫,更能幫助有需要的人找到神的真實和憐憫。

6. 為教會中的各個家庭祈禱,特別為那些有家人身體健康出現問題、家庭經濟出現困難、家人關係出現緊張的家庭禱告。求神幫助弟兄姊妹能選擇真理,讓神的道把我們分別為聖,更新改變我們,使我們願意讓神在家庭中作主作王。

Prayer Items from November 17 to 23:

“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.” John 17:17-18

When God separates us from the world and gives us a mission, we need to pray and act in the following three aspects: 1. In all circumstances, choose the truth, the word of God. 2. Be willing to be sanctified by the truth and be transformed. 3. Make every effort to be a person with God’s mission.

1.      Sometimes the circumstance does not fit to our expectation. If God teaches us to be a grateful one, we ask God to help us be grateful not only individually, but also with brothers and sisters in church. We will have Thanksgiving Worship, Thanksgiving Testimony Sharing and Thanksgiving Dinner. Ask God to bless this day to be a day we bless and encourage one another.

2.      Thank God to lead us to face the huge challenge in the building project. Pray that God help us allot our resources in bearing, offering in love and faith; and make every effort to practice God’s mission in using our resources.

3.      When we ponder how to follow God next year in allotting our resources, we pray that God help us to be willing to be sanctified by the truth, His word.

4.      When we learn how to face the challenges by faith in our building project, we pray that God help us to pray and seek more, pray and rely more, pray and gain strength more, so that we will have the courage to walk on the path of this building project. We pray that God help us to grip on any opportunity that we pray together in unity.

5.      Pray for those who are still looking for hope, especially for those residents in Hong Kong and Chile who are in turmoil. We pray that God’s righteousness and mercy shine upon them so that those who live in fear will find the true hope and future. We pray that God help those brothers and sisters in those areas hold onto the hope from God, be encouraged by the truth of God and live out God’s mission. We pray that not only God’s truthfulness and mercy be shown through them, but also be found by those in need.

6.      Pray for BAC’s families who are facing difficulties; family member becoming ill, having financial difficulties, having relationship difficulties, etc. We pray that God help brothers and sisters choose the truth and be willing to be sanctified by the word of God and be transformed so that God become the Lord and the king in our family.
