Global Day of Prayer 2007, 27th May Pentecost Sunday

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for blessing Hong Kong on May 27th, the Global Day of Prayer with 30,000 Christians gathered together in Hong Kong Stadium! Thank You for coming to Hong Kong in the form of rain and thunderstorm as the bible says, “He will come to us like the rain, like the latter and former rain to the earth” Hosea 6:3. Your strong presence was so evident throughout the event starting from worship and all the way for the ensuing 3.5 hours!

We thank You for the worship team – the Stream of Praise – for leading worship and managing to keep all our spirits high despite the fact that the musical instruments were ‘rain-stricken’. The rain unified our spirits and we were left to worship with what You designed and created – our voices and our hearts. The worship was great!

We thank You for the people from the nine different nationalities who went on stage in their own national costumes to bless Hong Kong in their own languages: “How good and pleasant it is when brothers live in unity!” Psalm 133:10. It was such a pleasant sight!

We thank You for the leaders of the community for leading the Prayer for the World. It must be so pleasing to You when Brothers and Sisters around the world pray together in unity!

We thank You for the youth for their sincere prayers of repentance and proclamations that they will honor and obey the Bible and will be bold and courageous in professing their Christian faith.

We thank You for all the pastors of the 18 Districts for leading prayers which were filled with repentance, thanksgiving and petitions. We were touched to see the people in the stadium responding to these prayers and being prayed for by the people surrounding them. May You mightily bless and manifest Your Presence in all the different districts in days to come.

Thank You for stopping the rain and for drying the ground immediately after the prayers of the 18 Districts. This enabled the symbolic wall of fire to be formed around the Hong Kong map by all the participating pastors and prayer intercessors, as in Zechariah 2:5 “ ‘And I myself will be a wall of fire around Hong Kong (it)’, declares the Lord, ‘and I will be its glory within.’” May Your Glory fall in Hong Kong!

The “passing of the baton” from the pastors of the older generation to the younger generation was such a moving and incredible sight! Over 1,000 passionate youths held up their batons marked with the words “Here am I. Send me!” Isaiah 6:8 and were led by a fiery youth leader to proclaim their faith and dedication to You! Many people were touched by the Holy Spirit and cried when they saw the 1,000 youth running around the track filled with hope and joy for their future in Christ! Lord may You mightily bless the young generation and may You also raise up more spiritual fathers and mothers who can encourage and mentor them. May these future leaders be a praying generation rooted in Your word – the Bible and be a Joshua generation.

Heavens opened, eagles were flying and the event was wrapped up with two high - energy dance performances, one from a Korean Church and another from a Filipino Church.

We thank You for all the helpers who overcame all challenges with peace and joy, embracing each other with the patience and love of God!

At 5.00pm I saw GDOP (HK) broadcasted on God TV with Hong Kong connecting with the world! Before the broadcast I saw Rory and Wendy, the founder of God TV, praying for us. It was indeed encouraging and comforting to know that the Christians who tuned in to this program were praying for us as well.

We praise You, Lord God, for Your love for us and the city of Hong Kong. May You pour down Your blessings into Hong Kong and the nations like never before.

We pray in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,
Amen
