Planning for Special Prayer Session for India

I am planning to call for a special prayer for India next Friday (Oct 3, 2008) evening, for our brothers and sisters who are suffering in persecutions, and also uplifting the relief efforts that is ongoing.

Heart4Japan Monthly Prayer Meeting will be from 12am to 7am on every first Saturday of the month. The special prayer will be conduct for an hour prior to our monthly prayer. 

There will always be a corporate prayer by the church, and a slot will be set for Japan prior to our meeting on first Friday evening of the month in Elim Church. The time is from 9.30pm - 11.30pm.

I'll confirm with you the time again for the special prayer session for India when I have more information. Meanwhile, please keep India in prayers, keep this prayer meeting in prayers! 

When One billion of Indians had never heard of the name of Jesus Christ in this lost land, there is also 128 million of Japanese who cut themselves, tending suicides, hiding in, not because of persecution, but the lost of meanings in life! When the Lord is remembering India, He had never lift His eyes off Japan, that is the reason for us, Heart4Japan troops to persist, and to remember our bodies in India the more!

Sep 5 Meeting: Report 1

Thank you for praying with us! The prayer meeting here was showered by His love and grace.

The Korean church had covered us with their corporate prayers before we started our prayer meeting. Michael Karpf came over from Tokyo to join us in meeting, we were given the chance to share about the needs in Japan and the ministry of Heart4Japan. Phoebe and Tim Wan joined us in the meeting, we made it till 7am the next day.

The meeting was a combination of sharing of field needs, worship, scriptures and praying. Our prayers were in different languages including tongues. Guess I was the only one who pray in tongues that night, yet God is definitely amazing, and allow His Holy Spirit to tear down the walls between denominations.We had prayed for a certain things, including: the missionaries' need and corporation with local church; the suicides and homicides; sexual industry, elderly, quakes, ijime and school system. Few scriptures came to us: John 4: 1-38; Rev 7 :9-12

As approaching the end, Scott called us from California through skype and we prayed for each other, the Lord gave us a scripture through Scott's sharing: Romans 8: 18-25

I called Chauncey earlier before we started, and we believed that Brownwood, Calgary were praying before and after us at the stated time. I'll update more to the group by end of this week. I'm still waiting for the feedback from the other centers. :-) Several updates and notes had been posted by the participants in either Heart4Japan group wall, or the prayer meeting wall. Please feel free to look at it.

Couldn't you watch with me even for one hour?

It's never easy to do overnight prayer, in fact, it's often not easy even just keep ourselves awake only for few hours. 

"Couldn't you watch with me even for one hour? Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!"

Obviously, Peter, James and John were tired, terribly tired. 

I can't remember how many times I dozed off in payers, how many times I felt asleep when I was supposed to watch. Yet, Jesus constantly reminded me, "Couldn't you watch with me even for one hour?"

It's never easy to pray, to ask for Him before we start on, before we go on with what are in our minds. We use the gifts He gives freely, use it in ways that "please" Him, for His Kingdom. Yet, we often forget to ask Him about what He wants, from us, for the Kingdom. 

Some people asked me, how could I be so clear of the Vision He set for me, how could I know where I should be the next step... without giving time to Him, without setting aside for Him, one will never know -- what He wants, what one should be to align in His will.

God will anoint all who seek Him and put Him first. 
God will anoint all the prayer locations, where they are praying for His heart for Japan!

As we pray, we are keeping Jesus in company. He had never stop working for Japan. In fact, He is waiting for us. Let's keep watch for each other!

"Couldn't you watch with me even an hour?" Mat 26:40

祷告 -- 你、我的本分


虽然说,“凡两三个人奉我的名聚在一起,哪里就有我在他们中间。”而且每一次我们也尽尝上帝同在的恩典。在得着恩典的时候,也着实为弟兄姐妹似乎对服事的次序先后错乱,而白白流失了生命本应得的祝福,和应许里更大的恩赐而感到惋惜。 比方说,有把本分的事误以为是使命。然后也有以为去宣教就是要先有储蓄等等的。熟不知,在这呼招里有过程......
