The Global Day of Prayer - Last day:
One Event, 31 May 09 @ 7 pm @ Penang Christian Centre (PCC)

It's my usual van driving day.
Since it was a lesser-crowd, we only needed 2 vans and I told the other driver:
"Hooray... I can go home and don't need to drive"

But, somewhat, I just went upstairs to Shalom Hall to see what it has got for me.
Just the day before during service, one of my church member asked me to go there to pray for the issues in my work place.

As I walked into the room, i see 'harp and bowl'.
What is that??
Just learnt a new term from wikipedia, which is derived from Rev 5:8 - a type of worship.
Harp represents the music and the bowl symbolizes our prayer.

8And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.

So, the Lord really revealed himself tonight.
God's presence was strong and powerful.

I did not get the 3rd point from the speaker, April, but got the 2 points:
1. God is on our side
- justice happens only through Jesus and God wants us to set apart to be a standard of righteousness, eg. at my workplace.

I have always seen unfairness treated among the different people of different teams.
I have always seen favouristism.
I have always seen how ass-kissers never get into trouble.

But, today, I realised that all these do not matter at all.
Because God is just.
If nobody at my workplace is on my side, GOD is on MY SIDE.
I once believe that God is my true employer. And he'd be fair.

2. God is righteous and Just
Sickness is injustice.
Healing is justice.
Abortion is not right in the eyes of GOD because everything that God made is GOOD stuff, including me.. :)

and another point was..
when doubt falls, our faith rises.....
I should stop my doubts, worries, else my faith would not rise.......
I should trust God's never-ending love for me, and stop relying love from others.
I have to start to receive God's love, and stop searching my heart somewhere else..

Wah.. suddenly so holy pula. Beh tahan. Many times we do not understand the situations we are in, but end of the day, when we depend on Him, our faith rises, our relationship with Him improve and we are Victors! Man gives selfish love and GOD's love is never-ending.
