LEADERS of prayer groups within the Klang Valley gathered at the NECF Malaysia Prayer Commission Thanksgiving Tea last December for a time of reflection and thanksgiving for the intercession ministry in the country. Many among the 147 participants were attending this annual get-together for the first time.
The participation of the newcomers – prayer leaders of churches and para-church organisations – signalled the increasing prayer awareness and mobilisation within the nation, and the realisation among churches for the need to network in prayer. Held at New Life Restoration Centre, Petaling Jaya, the gathering was also a time for the prayer leaders to discuss the coming year’s events.
NECF Executive Secretary (Prayer) Ann Low reflected on the past year’s activities while NECF Prayer Commission Chairman Grace Hee shared the activities that have been planned for the coming year. Participants also agreed to hold a prayer consultation (the first for the commission) in May. NECF Executive Secretary (Research) Lim Siew Foong enlightened the participants on the current issues and threats facing the country that required urgent intercession.
