Sing a Prayer With Your Heart

Every Time I Pray ... God Will Make a Way ... Above All ... He ... Who Has Promised ... In His Time.

Now ... Hum Along in Silence

(Ng Wah Lok & Voon Yuen Woh)

I will come to You in prayer
I will seek Your face
I will stand within the gap
There will I intercede

For every time I pray
I move the hand of God
My prayer does the things
My hands cannot do
For every time I pray
The mountains are removed
The paths are made straight
And nations turn to you.

I am weak and helpless Lord
You, my strength shall be
Guide me with Your gracious hand
There will my victory be.

(Don Moen)

God will make a way,
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength for each new day
He will make a way,
He will make a way.

By a roadway in the wilderness,
He'll lead me
And rivers in the desert will I see
Heaven and earth will fade
But His Word will still remain
He will do something new today.

God will make a way,
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength for each new day
He will make a way,
He will make a way

(Michael W. Smith)

Above all powers above all kings
Above all nature and all created things
Above all wisdom and all the ways of man
You were here before the world began

Above all kingdoms above all thrones
Above all wonders the world has ever known
Above all wealth and treasures of the earth
There's no way to measure what You're worth

Crucified laid behind the stone
You lived to die rejected and alone
Like a Rose trampled on the ground
You took the fall and thought of me
Above all

(Richard Mullen)

He can turn the tides
And calm the angry sea.
He alone decides
Who writes a symphony.

He lights ev'ry star
That makes our darkness bright.
He keeps watch all through
Each long and lonely night.

He still finds the time
To hear a child's first prayer.
Saint or sinner call
And always find Him there.

Though it makes him sad
To see the way we live,
He'll always say, "I forgive."

He can grant a wish
Or make a dream come true.
He can paint the clouds
And turn the gray to blue.

He alone knows where
To find the rainbow's end.
He alone can see
What lies beyond the bend.

He can touch a tree
And turn the leaves to gold.
He knows every lie
That you and I have told.




因你是我主,我避難所, 我盾牌和詩歌﹗
你永在我心窩﹗ 唯你有永生江河,



In His time,
He makes all things beautiful
In His time,

He makes all things beautiful
Lord, please show me everyday
That You'll do just what You say

In Your time,
in Your time
You make all things beautiful
In Your time,
In Your time

Forgiveness : The Way to Happiness

The virtue of forgiveness ran through my ears three times in a row over the past weekend:
(1) At a Mandarin Fellowship group sharing on Friday, the leader quoted from a U.S. survey that one of the top three ways to gain happiness is to forgive. Another way is to be altruistic, i.e. having unselfish interest in the welfare of others. I don't quite remember the third way. It has something to do with being religious.

(2) At my Team of Love group sharing on Saturday, the air suddenly smelled apologetic. There were public apology for wrong attitudes, followed by hugs of forgiveness. I could literally 'hear' the release of built-up inner pressure through uttering of the three magic words "I am sorry".

(3) During the Sunday sermon, a visiting preacher quoted from Phil 4:19: "And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus." Though the message was mission focused, it dawned on me that as we forgive one another in Christ Jesus, our heavenly Father is glorified AND He will richly meet all our needs, including the healing of our hurt emotion and lifting of low self-esteem.

My take home lesson : there is always healing joy through forgiveness in Christ Jesus.

Vision of Badminton Ministry

I propose this slogan for our upcoming Badminton League as part of our long-term vision to outreach to unbelievers : FAIR, FUN, FRIENDSHIP, and FELLOWSHIP. God will certainly smile if we Christians and unbelievers act and play on the court as a happy FAMILY.

My First Band Experience

I just got off from my very first band practice of a Praise team - with keyboard, base guitar, acoustic guitar, drums, vocalists, etc. It was an eye-opening experience for me, because I've never played guitar in a band, nor have I jammed music with so many people at the same time.

God created music not only for us to praise Him, but also our own enjoyment and satisfaction. The joy of being able to hear other instruments while playing mine on the guitar is indescribable. You need to be there yourself to feel it. In a word, it is very very 'JEN' (非常'正').

May God be pleased as everyone in the Grand Praise team does his/her best to exalt and praise Him. Amen!

Displaced Person

I remember long time ago I read a novel for my freshman English class titled "Displaced Person". These two words have stuck in my mind for a long time. Recently, I learned from the cover story of "Westways" - AAA magazine - that a person by the name Will Rogers (he was supposedly a famous rich cowboy with an Indian heritage back in the early 1900s) had once said, "I never met a person I didn't like."

These eight words also stuck in my mind as I pondered my new year resolution in 2007. I have been blessed by my CSAF small group this year in that everyone has tried to support one another in love. How I wish that Will Rogers' motto continues to live on among us that no one (whether belivers or unbelievers) will be left displaced or disliked. May we work harder to appreciate one another. In God's eyes, no one is of absolute zero value, and everyone is eternally priceless.
