[31 Days of Prayer] Day 1: Prayers for Malaysia

Hi all,

I decided to join with Beth Moore and do the 31 Days of Prayer , where we will be praying for 31 days for the month of July. I decided to include my prayers here for each country I am praying for and as the Holy Spirit leads. I pray you will join me.

This is the confidence [I] have before Him: If [I] ask anything according to His will, He hears [me]. And if [I] know that He hears whatever [I] ask [I] know that [I] have what [I] asked of Him.”

1 John 5:14-15, CSB (emphasis mine)

(Using John 1 to guide these prayers)

Father, I pray:

  • That the Word is giving life to the people of Malaysia.
  • That the life of Jesus is bringing life to everyone in Malaysia
  • That the light of Jesus shines in the dark areas and the darkness cannot ever extinguish it
  • That You will raise up witnesses just as You did with John the Baptist to tell about the light of Christ, through the power of Your Holy Spirit
  • That the people of Malaysia will recognize Jesus for who He is
  • That they would believe in Jesus and accept Him so that they are given the right to become children of God
  • That their hearts are softened and opened to the gospel of Jesus Christ
  • That Jesus would make His home among the Malaysian people and they would experience His unfailing love and faithfulness revealed to them
  • that You Lord are raising up those like John the Baptist in Malaysia as a voice shouting in the wilderness to make the way clear for Jesus to come into the hearts of the Malaysian people and to testify that Jesus is the chosen One of God
  • That their hearts are not hardened nor their eyes blinded to the truth of the Gospel
  • That You Lord would reveal how much You love them so much so that You gave Your One and only Son for them, Jesus, the Son of God
  • That as the body of Christ around the globe joins together on one accord under the power of the Holy Spirit of God, revival would break out across the country of Malaysia
  • That there will be a spirit of unity in the country of Malaysia and among the people
  • That various expressions of love will be evident where there was once hate or dislike

In Jesus’ name, I pray. AMEN!

Prayer in Malay

Tuhan Yesus saya berdoa,

Bahawa Firman memberi kehidupan kepada rakyat Malaysia.
Bahawa kehidupan Yesus menghidupkan semua orang di Malaysia
Bahwa cahaya Yesus bersinar di kawasan gelap dan kegelapan tidak pernah dapat memadamkannya
Bahawa Anda akan mengumpulkan saksi seperti yang Anda lakukan dengan Yohanes Pembaptis untuk memberitahu tentang cahaya Kristus, melalui kuasa Roh Kudus-Mu
Bahawa rakyat Malaysia akan mengenali Yesus untuk siapa Dia
Bahawa mereka akan percaya kepada Yesus dan menerima Dia sehingga mereka diberi hak untuk menjadi anak-anak Tuhan
Agar hati mereka dilunakkan dan terbuka kepada Injil Yesus Kristus
Bahawa Yesus akan menjadikan rumah-Nya di antara orang-orang Malaysia dan mereka akan mengalami kasih dan kesetiaan-Nya yang tidak terungkap kepada mereka
bahawa Tuanku membesarkan orang-orang seperti Yohanes Pembaptis di Malaysia sebagai suara yang berteriak di padang belantara untuk menjelaskan jalan bagi Yesus untuk masuk ke dalam hati rakyat Malaysia dan untuk memberi kesaksian bahawa Yesus adalah Tuhan yang terpilih
Agar hati mereka tidak dikeraskan atau mata mereka dibutakan dengan kebenaran Injil
Bahwa Tuhanmu akan menyatakan betapa Engkau mengasihi mereka sehingga Engkau memberikan Putra-Mu yang Satu untuk mereka, Yesus, Anak Tuhan
Bahawa tubuh Kristus di seluruh dunia bergabung bersama dalam satu kesepakatan di bawah kuasa Roh Kudus Tuhan, kebangkitan akan pecah di seluruh negara Malaysia
Bahawa akan wujud semangat perpaduan di negara Malaysia dan di kalangan masyarakat
Bahawa pelbagai ungkapan cinta akan dapat dilihat di mana pernah ada rasa benci atau tidak suka

Dalam nama Yesus, saya berdoa. AMEN!

But before you go…

***Tomorrow is not promised. Today is all we have. If you are reading this and haven’t accepted Jesus Christ as Your Lord and Savior, would you consider doing so right now? Jesus died so He could have a personal relationship with you and so that one day, when you leave this earth, you can spend eternity with Him. You can say a prayer similar to this:

Dear Lord, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and that I cannot save myself. You showed Your great love for me, while I was in my sinful state, by sending Jesus Christ to die for me. Today, right now, I declare that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead. Please enter into my heart, Lord Jesus, forgive me of all of my sins, and seal me with Your Holy Spirit. I choose this day to live for You, all the days of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

If you said this prayer (or something similar) and you truly meant it, welcome to the family of God! Angels in heaven are rejoicing with you on the best decision you will ever make in life, and so am I! Please send me an email (ladyinwaiting222@gmail.com) or respond to this post so I can celebrate with you!

Then the Lord God made a woman
