Pictures of prayer

What are some pictures that we typically use for prayer? An open receiving hand? Someone kneeling at the bedside with clasped hands, closed eyes and an earnest look? I recently came across this one which I thought was so sweet. But, however sweet, this image doesn’t help build my faith that Abba God will grant me my prayers. The most common image of prayer of supplication is the open receiving hand. It is a symbol of attentiveness and of waiting. The hands is open and empty, waiting for God to fill it up. Although it is true that answered prayers Continue Reading

Justified in Mandarin and Hokkien | New Creation Church Worship Album

称義 Justified is the first worship album by New Creation Church in Hokkien and Mandarin. It is 2-disc album. One disc features Mandarin songs, the other disc Hokkien songs.   专辑内侧的说明: 義 这个繁体字其实是由两个字 — “羊” 和 “我” 所组成的。当“我” 把 “羊” 给穿上时,就成了“義”。 对于基督徒来说,这只羊所指的就是耶稣基督 — 上帝的羔羊。 当我们穿上基督这只羔羊时, 我们就得以称義。 而这张专辑就是为了庆祝这个真理而录制的。 马克牧师说: 在我们还是罪人的时候,耶稣已经为了我们被钉死。 因他在十架上的赎罪完工和他的复活,上帝得以名正言顺地称我们为义。事实上,上帝赐予我们如此公义的身份,我们如今只管坦然无惧地来到他的面前,呼叫他 “阿爸,父”!而我们所需要的只是相信。随着我们被称义,平安与福气来到了我们的生命中。今天,让这些歌曲触动您的心,告诉您什么是完全的公义!

Jesus, Anchor of My Soul

The sure promises of 2011 is an anchor of the soul. Hebrews 6: 13-20 13 For when God made the promise to Abraham, since He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, 14 saying, “I WILL SURELY BLESS YOU AND I WILL SURELY MULTIPLY YOU.” 15 And so, having patiently waited, he obtained the promise. 16 For men swear by one greater than themselves, and with them an oath given as confirmation is an end of every dispute. 17 In the same way God, desiring even more to show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness Continue Reading

Dwell on these things – true, honourable, right, pure, lovely, of good repute, excellence, worthy of praise

I woke up this morning with this thought in my head – what has been going into my mind lately? Lord Jesus reminded me of this verse in Philippians 4. Philippians 4:8-9 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, *dwell on these things. *dwell on these things The mind is a powerful thing. It affects your feelings, moods and behaviour. Heard of the phrase “garbage in garbage out”? It works on the mind too. Continue Reading

Miracle seed and lasting fragrance for Jesus

Last week, Pastor Prince revealed that this sunday 22 August is going to be Miracle Seed Sunday. Miracle Seed Sunday is an annual sowing event that our church started when we decided to embark on the One-North building project. It was fundraising for the church but it was sowing for me. I am trusting Father God to grow the seeds I sown into a jaw-dropping harvest for me. My first Miracle Seed Sunday was in 2008 and it was a very exciting day. I gave a one-time sum that I considered small but was all I could muster because I Continue Reading
