40 DAYS OF PRAYER (2021)


Day 10 – The Present Opportunity

Praise God! Because of the protection of Your mighty arms, because of the overseeing of Your eyes, we are able to dwell in peace and comfort. Praise God! Because of the guidance of Your hands, because of the supply of Your words, we are able to stand firmly in You.

Facing the impact of the pandemic, man’s faith towards God is tested, as we learn to trust You in God with everything, this is an opportunity for life breakthrough and spiritual growth.

All the busyness of life came to a stop, we have more time to reflect upon our relationship with the Father God, this is an opportunity for life transformation and maturity.

The failure to place God in the first place is in the past, now it is all about seeking first God’s kingdom and His righteousness, this is a great opportunity for repentance and restoration.

Through difficult circumstances, I now see clearly of my pride, so I turn to follow You in the ways of a child. As Paul said, “Whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ.” (Philippians 3:7)

Praise God for giving us opportunity to re-prioritize our lives, allowing us to count the grace of God even more so in the midst of crisis.

Now that life is full of expectation, there is no longer a fear of change. Having been refined, “Transformation” is no longer scary.

My heart is touched from every little things, there is the sign of grace everywhere, I trust God will continue to guide us and keep us according to His abundant love and promises.

“Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21)
