The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made. (Psalms 145:8-9, ESV)


Wishing everyone a blessed New Year filled with God’s grace and mercy and a life with abundance and joy!

As we enter the New Year, let us allow our gracious God to renew our hearts and align our priorities in our lives.

With this purpose in mind, our pulpit series in January emphasises fixing our eyes on God and worshipping Him wholeheartedly. Over four Sundays, we will focus on God through four perspectives: Worship as a Covenant Renewal; Passionate Worship; To Worship in Spirit and in Truth; Genuine Worship is Submissive and Sacrificial.

In February, we shall turn our eyes upon Jesus: the first Sunday we will listen to Jesus’s invitation to “Come and See”; the second Sunday let us look at our responses “When Jesus Calls”; the third Sunday (beginning of Lent), we will learn from Jesus’s Transfiguration to attend to our Heavenly Father’s instruction and “Listen to Him!”; on the first day of Chinese New Year, we will look into our “Credibility as Christians”; and the last Sunday of February we shall look at how Jesus faced the temptations in the wilderness and learn from Him in “Wilderness Time – A Time for Learning”.

I would like to encourage all of us with a prayer. May this be our prayer for this year. This prayer comes from Jonanthan Coussins, an Itinerant Methodist minister in the 18th century during the Wesleyan revival. The first part of the prayer is as follows:

Grant me, gracious Lord, a pure intention of heart,

and a steadfast regard to your glory in all my actions.

Possess my mind continually with your presence, and fill it with your love,

that my whole delight may be to repose in the arms of your protection.

Be light to my eyes, music to my ears, sweetness to my taste,

and full contentment to my heart.

Be my sunshine in the day, my food at the table, my repose in the night,

my clothing in company, my succor in all necessities.
