Dear HIM Family,
Let us arise and seek the face of God together! He is calling us to be communities that will continually be reliant upon God and be powerfully transformed by the Lord in our every day living. As we walk confidently in the Father’s love and His Word, may our transformed lives speak forth God’s goodness and His power to restore, refresh and renew lives. May many be ministered to consequently. It starts with us calling upon the Lord, humbling ourselves before Him and posturing our hearts to extend His Kingdom. So, let’s come together in fasting and prayer from 9th to 13th January 2023. I believe God will do so much more as we His people seek His face earnestly! We shall be praying together live on Facebook at 9.30pm Brisbane time and it will be recorded so that others could join us in prayer in their different time zones. I humbly exhort you to join in with the HIM Elders in seeking the Lord Jesus!
Praying for you and with you,
Ps Lai Ling
Key Passages to Meditate Upon
And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to the prayers. Then fear came over everyone, and many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles. Now all the believers were together and held all things in common. They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as anyone had a need. Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple complex, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with a joyful and humble attitude, praising God and having favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to them those who were being saved.”
And let us be concerned about one another in order to promote love and good works, not staying away from our worship meetings, as some habitually do, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”
