Pray for Youth Missions

Perhaps if there were more of that intense distress for souls that leads to tears, we should more frequently see the results we desire.’ Hudson Taylor

‘He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.’ Jim Elliot

‘Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell.’ C.T.Studd

Today, there are 6.4 billion individuals in the world, a figure that is increasing by the minute! Of the approximately 16,000 people groups in the world, 6,900 remain least reached. Least reached is a missions term which means “lacking an indigenous community of believing Christians with enough resources and numbers to evangelize their own people group”. So that means 1 in 4 people have very little chance of hearing the Gospel. (Ethne 06)

In South East Asia alone, “least reached” describes 49.3% of the combined population. Yes, that’s nearly half of all South East Asians. For the non-math geeks, that’s about 271,769,000 people! (Ethne 06)

Pray for Missions:

1. That a youth mission movement to arise from this generation.

2. That young people may be challenged to live differently.

3. That young people will think of their calling and vocations as more than just fulfilling material needs and wants.

4. That Malaysia will send out more than 100,000 missionaries from our generation.

Quotes on Prayer

“To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.” Martin Luther.

“Let your prayer for temporal blessings be strictly limited to things absolutely necessary.” St. Bernard.

“Triumphant prayer is almost impossible where there is neglect of the study of the Word of God.” Reuben Torrey.

“”Prayerlessness is a sin.” Corrie Ten Boom.

“Against the persecution of a tyrant the godly have no remedy but prayer.” John Calvin.

“”Shall I give you yet another reason why you should pray? I have preached my very heart out. I could not say any more than I have said. Will not your prayers accomplish that which my preaching fails to do? Is it not likely that the Church has been putting forth its preaching hand but not its praying hand? Oh dear friends! Let us agonize in prayer.” Charles Spurgeon.

“Whole days and weeks have I spent prostrate on the ground in silent or vocal prayer.” George Whitfield.

“Bear up the hands that hang down, by faith and prayer; support the tottering knees. Have you any days of fasting andprayer? Storm the throne of grace and persevere therein, and mercy will come down.” John Wesley.

“Have you noticed how much praying for revival has been going on of late – and how little revival has resulted? I believe the problem is that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying, and it simply will not work. To pray for revival while ignoring the plain precept laid down in Scripture is to waste a lot of words and get nothing for our trouble. Prayer will become effective when we stop using it as a substitute for obedience.” A.W. Tozer.

“Prayer – secret, fervent, believing prayer – lies at the root of all personal godliness.” William Carey.

“Groanings which cannot be uttered are often prayers which cannot be refused.” Charles Spurgeon.

“Prayer is the breath of the new creature.” Richard Baxter.

And I love this the best:

“I have seen many men work without praying, though I have never seen any good come out of it; but I have never seen a man pray without working.” Hudson Taylor.

A few social injustices in our country

Malaysia is ruled by the rich and the powerful. With money, all manner of evil and injustice is tolerated and perpetrated. There is blood and a curse over our land because of great wrongs done so that the powerful can remain in power. Here is a list of injustices we would want to ask the God of Heaven to pardon, and may He intervene!

1. Unjust judicial system: The guilty declared innocent

2. Police force injustice/murder: Teoh Beng Hock and 350 others dying in custody

3. Religious intolerance perpetrated and instigated: Usage of Allah, revoking of permit of Herald, cow head protest

4. Foreign workers victimized: RELA officers mistreating, threatening and abusing our foreign friends

5. Innocent woman murdered by the govt, her blood cries out!

Why must we pray?

MYPG is covered and supported by key national leaders in Malaysia. We are affiliated with the Malaysia National Prayer Network, a relatively new network (only officially launched in 2008) that works with all mainline churches under CCM and ‘charismatic’/independent churches linked under NECF. 

See this video comprising senior pastors and leaders encouraging young people to pray.
