A couple of days ago, I signed up to pray for my nation, city, community and neighbourhood with “Thy Kingdom Come”. This prayer movement starts on Ascension Day (21 May) and ends on Pentecost Day (31 May).
It is so touching to see different countries around the world being lit up in prayers!
When I see these lights, the teaching of Jesus comes to mind, “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16, NIV).
Let us all shine for Christ by doing deeds and living a life that glorify His holy Name! Let us all pray for His Kingdom to come to our nation!
Come, let us light up the city!
