TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
All glory to God whose faithfulness we have seen through all generations. I am honoured to share in His faithfulness shown to the Women’s Department of the Singapore Baptist Convention for the past 50 years.
Since it first started by some faithful sisters who saw the need of praying together for Singapore churches and for one another, it has now extended to praying for missions locally and globally. As such, our World Day of Prayer (WDOP) to pray for the seven Continents would indeed continue as long as God is willing.
“…not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:25; NIV)
It is with this verse in mind that I hope we must not give up meeting and praying together for one another. May God continue to bless the Women’s Department in seeing more sisters gather together celebrating His goodness and mercy day by day.
Jesus said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” I pray and believe that our Baptist sisters will know where to place our treasures so that God is pleased with us.
Sisters, let us arise and shine for Christ as the Women’s Department of the Singapore Baptist Convention continues to serve our faithful God faithfully in this prayer ministry. Our God deserves all our praise and His name endures forever!
