Pray for the group leaders and ask God to help them have the wisdom to share the gospel to their group members.

Ask God to guide and help us to grow up in the word of God and to be more intimate with God and to lead Christlike lives.|
|05||May Kuan: Please pray for my mother. I feel that my mother has fallen into the trap of the devil and the confusion of paganism. She always believes that my father and my brother's problems stem from being cursed. She is a baptized Christian and still has a misconception that money can be used to redeem her family. Ask God to let her truly understand the meaning of belief in the Lord Jesus Christ and that she will learn to entrust her family to God.|

|09||Sy Wei: My mother officially retired this year. She was originally a Word Place staff and will now be a volunteer. As a result, her economic resources have also decreased tremendously. Please pray for my mother and ask God to continue to supply my mother's needs and keep her healthy. Also ask God to give her wisdom and know how to use her time wisely.|
|10||Kok Siang: I am following up a young Form 1 Christian student - Song Jie. He is young in faith. He is the second youngest among 8 other siblings. Only his sister and him accepted Christ in his family. Please pray for Song Jie that God will help him to take his relationship with God more seriously and to be assured of his salvation.|

|19||Kok Siang: Please pray for me; I feel excited because I am interested in media, but the challenge is that I can’t just rely on myself to complete different projects. I need to mobilize and nurture more people who have related skills to partner together. Another challenge is that it has been almost 2 years since I kept up-to-date with current media technology, development and practices. I have much to catch up and to learn.|
|20||Yick Ken: Recently, I am thinking about should I continue to improve, or should I maintain? I have been thinking and struggling with this issue for a long time. Lately, many people around me have persuaded and encouraged me to keep improving myself and to lose weight. I want to make up my mind to improve myself and become a child with whom God is pleased. Please pray for me that I can discipline myself and not give excuses anymore. Pray that I will not give up easily, and not to be impatient to look for quick success.|
|21||Wee Shyan: Ask God to give me strength and health so that I can help and support Peter so that he can focus on YFC’s ministry.|

Ask God to help students value this ministry and be willing to participate in our ministry.|
