PraySingapore is a call to all. A national day of prayer and fasting. A historic first uniting all who are hungry enough to fast and desperate enough to pray for Singapore. The high point in this Year of Prayer. A spiritual act in unity, in humble obedience to God. A sacred trust to shape the future of our nation. A strategic step towards God’s promised revival-harvest in this kairos window.
Seek the Welfare of the City
Seek the welfare of the city… and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare …
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord …" (Jeremiah 29: 7, 11-14)
Singapore is a miracle nation admired around the world. Yet, beneath that gleaming facade, there are signs of decline that threaten to undo her.
We see a weakening sense of duty to stay faithful in marriage, to pro-create, and to parent our children. We see the rise of secularism and youth shunning religion. We see a society fragmented along class divides.
We are not in the pink of health. We are a nation at war with diabetes and depression. As one of the fastest ageing societies in Asia, eldercare will escalate. Dementia could become a national crisis sooner than expected.
We see a lack of rootedness and emotional bonding to Singapore. ESM Goh Chok Tong has warned that Singapore will decline when her people cease to value her, and begin to treat her as a stepping stone, a temporary station in life to get an excellent education, grow wings, and fly off to sink roots somewhere else to seek their own fame, fortune, and future.
We cannot be complacent. We cannot brush these issues aside and conveniently leave them for future generations to tackle. That would be totally irresponsible. God expects us to do the right thing on our watch: Humble ourselves. Repent. Seek his face. Seek the shalom of the city.
God loves Singapore. When we seek him wholeheartedly, he promises to show up. He will show the way, turning Singapore Godwards. To God be the Glory!
Let's together pray with One Heart One Voice as a church, One Foundation One Future as a family, One Name One Hope for the harvest, and One People One Destiny as a nation.
