Weekly Prayers

親愛的匯點人:

在他被捉拿前(約翰福音17章),耶穌為幾件事情禱告: 他自己得榮耀(1),門徒得保護不受惡者的攻擊(15),門徒透過真理成聖(17),門徒同心合一(21)。透過復活, 耶穌已經得榮耀,不過我們仍然需要祈求保護,成聖和合一,尤其是未來一個星期,當我們的心靈朝向加略山的時候,耶穌當天晚上的禱告也應該是我們的禱告。這些日子,病毒常被形容為我們的的仇敵。但是基督徒明白,我們真正的仇敵是謊言(約翰福音8:44)和爭競(雅各書3:16)之父魔鬼。因此讓我們記住為打敗惡者禱告!

Dear Crosspointers, 

In his prayer before being arrested (John 17), Jesus prayed for his glorification (v1), the protection of his disciples from the evil one (v15), the sanctification of his disciples by the truth (v17), and the complete unity among his disciples (v21).  Through his resurrection, Jesus was already glorified. Yet, we must continue to pray for protection, sanctification, and unity – especially in this week as our mind is set on Calvary. What Jesus prayed that night should be our prayer focus. These days, virus is often spoken as our enemy.  But Christians understand that our real enemy is the devil, who is father of lies (John 8:44) and strife (James 3:16). Let’s pray for the defeat of the Enemy!

Blessings,

Pastor Gideon Lee
