Hope of Jubilee prayer booklet
NECF Malaysia apologises for the graphic oversight in the design of the 40-Day Fast & Prayer Hope of Jubilee booklet. The map of Malaysia on the cover inaccurately shows the Peninsula as disproportionately larger than East Malaysia. We apologise for any ill-feelings caused to East Malaysian brothers and sisters. The mistake was unintentional and we are taking steps to rectify the versions published online.

Dear Coordinator/Pastor/Elder/Prayer Leader/Partner,
Suggested Program for 40-Day Fast & Pray Launch
As we enter into the month of July, different states, cities, towns and churches will be preparing for their local launches of the annual 40-Day Fast & Pray campaign which will start on 7 August and last till 15 September.
To aid you in your local launch, we have prepared the following downloadable resources:
Prophetic Intercession - We have invited Pastor Julius Suubi to speak at our Pastors and Prayer Leaders Retreat in Peacehaven, from 13 - 14 September as well as at our Prayer Seminar at FGT USJ on 15 September. The next day, on 16 September, he will speak at the Klang Valley Hope of Jubilee Celebration, also at FGT USJ. Pastor Julius' ministry is widely received here in the Klang Valley and has impacted the prayer lives of many pastors and churches.
Finally, our prayer booklets are still available for order. If your Church has yet to order the prayer booklets, kindly download the order form and send it to us. For further inquiries, kindly contact Rev Andy Chi at 016 2030561 or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for your participation and support. God bless you.

Dear Pastors, Elders & Church Leaders,
2012 Hope of Jubilee 40-Day Fast & Pray Booklet
Greetings in Jesus’ Name.
We are pleased to inform that NECF has started printing the 12th Edition of the 40-Day Fast & Prayer booklet. This year the theme will be ‘Hope of Jubilee’. Malaysia on September 16, 2012 will enter into her 50th Jubilee year, as a nation. Jubilee as understood in the Bible presents to us a national promise and hope of restoration, liberty and rest.
As Christians, this is our longing and desire for our nation. We will together seek God again from August 7th to September 15th, to pray that as our nation ushers into Jubilee, we will witness God’s destiny for Malaysia.
Kindly download and fill in this order form for your prayer booklets and fax/mail it to us for processing and delivery.
Looking forward to see God at work in our beloved nation.
Serving you with joy
Rev Chan Theam Lai

40-Day Fast & Prayer on Jubilee
A key event in the NECF calendar is the 40-Day Fast and Prayer in August and September which culminates in the Malaysia Day Prayer Rally. This year, in line with NECF's emphasis on 2012 as Malaysia's Jubilee, the theme for the 40-Day Fast and Prayer is "Hope of Jubilee: Restoration, Liberation, Rest".
Why this theme? In the Bible, Jubilee is the year for national restoration, liberty and rest. It is God's desire for every nation and individual to experience Jubilee. The article 'The Year of Jubilee in the New Testament' on page 10 is a helpful read to give us the context of Jubilee in this day and age.
On the national level, Malaysia enters her 50th year as a nation on 16 Sept 2012, the anniversary of the date when the Malay Federation and the sovereign states of Sabah and Sarawak (and Singapore, until 1965) came together as one nation.
Christian leaders in Sabah, Sarawak and West Malaysia have grasped the spiritual significance of Malaysia Day in 2012 and see a correspondence between Jubilee and the Malaysian Church's desire for national transformation.
The 40 Days of Fast and Prayer will continue the Church's cry for transformation and nation-building with the Jubilee framework in mind.
It is also a platform to educate Christians about the importance of building up the Bahasa Malaysia-speaking native congregations of Sabah and Sarawak which, combined, form more than 60% of the country's Christian population. (See article The Significance of Sabah and Sarawak for Malaysian Christians.)
Through Jubilee, may the churches of East and West Malaysia be united in purpose, and through prayer, may the Church of Malaysia realign herself and the nation with God!
The 40-Day Fast and Prayer will be held from 7 Aug to 15 Sept 2012. Prayer rallies in different languages will be held on 15 and 16 Sept in conjunction with Malaysia Day. Prayer booklets can be ordered from NECF from April.
