Cell Group 2013 - Fasting & Praying (week 1: 22 to 28 Jan 2013).
Jan 22


The Bible told us in Psalm 91: 15 & 16 that, “He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation”.


Brethren, this year 2013 is a very crucial one to us as individuals, church, families and as a Nation. The time we spend with the Lord in prayer can release the most dynamic, historical-changing power that this world has ever known. We need to trust God for His divine intervention, the manifestation of His power and the outpouring of His glory. In view of this, I would like to encourage us to be part of this spiritual exercise, Luke 18:1 …”for men ought always to pray, and not to faint”. As you choose to dedicate yourself to waiting upon Him, He will surely show you those great and mighty things that you never and will ever have known in Jesus name.


Please open your Bible to read (even though I have written them below for you) & mark them for future meditation. I’m available to further explain or make these scriptures/prayers clearer to you by just dropping me an email or call me:

  1. Ps. 90:12-14, “So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom. Return, O Lord! How long? And have compassion on Your servants. Oh, satisfy us early with Your mercy, That we may rejoice and be glad all our days!”
  2. Rev. 7:3; “saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.””
  3. Ezek. 9:4-5, “and the Lord said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.” To the others He said in my hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity.”



Spend the whole week meditating these Bible verses and pray. Below are suggested prayer guide. Please ask these questions while praying: Have I fully trusted Jesus on God promises? How do I make it works for me, my family and my church in a practical manner? Who can I seek help/support/counsel when facing daunting challenges to trust God? Invite the Holy Spirit to be your prayer partner.



Grenadine (for the lady) & myself are available to be your prayer partners. Just call or email us, and we will be most happy to serve you.


As Jason has suggested, please kindly forward this email to whoever would like to participate in this time of seeking God’s favour.


Let His light shine upon our soul. Take care.

P.S. Humphrey & John, please kindly uphold us in your prayers.
