Dear Pastor, Elder and Church Leader

Scripture: Daniel 10:1-21
 
The Prime Minister has announced the dissolution of the Parliament on 7th April, 2018 to pave the way for GE14 to take place.
 
The Election Commission has set 9th May, 2018 as our election date.
 
Regardless of our “preferred outcome” for the election, we, as responsible citizens of the nation, should always be found praying for the well-being and destiny of our nation as mandated by the Holy Scriptures.
 
God’s servant Daniel was a model, who prayed for the land and served the nation whilst being exiled. On receiving a disconcerting vision, he set himself to mourn for three weeks, ate no choice food, no meat nor allowed wine to touch his lips and used no lotions (Daniel 10:2-3). His objective was to seek understanding of the vision and the times and its duration.
 
Daniel earnestly sought God for 21 days in prayer and fasting. In response, God heard his prayers, revealed His plans and strengthened him (Daniel 10:12).
 
NECF remains non-partisan, and this is not a call for a change of government, but a call to all our members to humbly seek God so that He will hear our prayers and His sovereign will be done in our nation and that all Malaysians will be blessed by God.
 
Our sincere desire is to see good men and women, from both sides of the divide elected into Parliament and into the State legislatures.
 
Like Daniel, we want to “set our heart to understand, and to humble ourselves before God” (Daniel 10:12).
 
This season to seek understanding of the times, is also a season for the Church to repent.
 
So much of what has been expounded in Revelation with regards to the “seven lampstands” are prevalent in our modern-day Church. Unless the Church is willing to put Him first, serve Him unreservedly, honor His Word, acknowledge we are all on a pilgrimage, and once again make His House a House of Prayer, we will not doubt like our forefathers “drink from the river and die in the wilderness.” (1 Cor 10:1-6; Psalms 78:16)
 
God will not use an unrepentant, prideful Church to be an agent of change in the nation. Today, both the Church and the nation need prayer.
 
With effect from 21st April, 2018, we will start our 21-Day of Prayer and Fasting,
 
As part of the preparation, let us do the following:
 
1. Clear your calendar to set aside this period of time to pray a minimum of 21 minutes at 2100 hour (9.00pm) for 21 days, every day.
 
2. For the next 21 days, get your family involved or organize a small group of like-minded believers to pray together (create social media eg. Whats App group to remind and encourage one another).
 
3. Decide on the type of fast you and your group will be doing. eg no meat; no dinner; no media; etc…and continually encourage each other.
 
4. And pray for the following:
 
A. Before the Election: 21st  April to 8th May (Day 1-18)
 

Church:
 
1. The Church to humble herself before the Lord (1 Peter 5:6)
2. The Church to seek the Lord (2 Chronicles 7:14)
 
Nation:
 
1. The eyes of the Nation to be enlightened (Ephesians 1:17-18)
2. The Nation to hope in God (Isaiah 45:22)

 
 B. During the Election: 9th May (Day 19)
 
Church:
 
1. The Church will arise and shine (Isaiah 60:1)
2. The Church to sow in righteousness (Hosea 10:12)
 
Nation:
 
1. The Fear of God to overshadow their hearts (Proverbs 9:10)
2. The Lord to direct their path (Proverbs 16:9)

 
C. After the Election: 10th & 11th May (Day 20-21)
 
Church
 
1. The Church to be ceaseless in prayer (Isaiah 62:6-7)
2. The Church as the House of Prayer to be restored (Mark 11:17)
 
 Nation
 
1. The rulers will govern with justice and righteousness (Proverbs 14:34)
2. The land will be blessed with peace (Leviticus 26:6)

 
Let us humbly submit ourselves to the Holy Spirit’s guidance as we take this 21-Day journey.
 
Daily devotionals will be sent out to help us in our prayer time.
 
May God bless you as you seek to be a blessing to the Church and our beloved nation.


Sincerely,

Rev Andy Chi
Assistant Secretary-General
