Drawing Near to God - A Day of Reflection

Prayer Camp was awesome!! (* this is for people who missed it :P Aha! Do you feel left out now? xD )

There were only 21 of us in all, including the teachers.. Though the numbers were small, we still made something out of this camp. We gathered in church on Friday night ( 8:00p.m.), Uncle Gerald prayed for our safety & so, the journey started up the winding roads of Genting! Throughout the entire trip, there was much laughter and chatter. There was a whole lot of secrets being told during the car ride too.. Muahaha! (* interested? Ask the people who went. :) ) We arrived at Peacehaven, Genting at around 10 something. Everyone was tired by then, so after the checking-in stuff were done, bed sheet sorting were done, it was time for bed.

The next day, we arise at 8:00a.m., had breakfast and started our first session. The first session was about reflection. Su handled this session, asking us a few hardcore questions. "Why do you come to church?" , "Why do you come to YF?" , "Jesus died for us, so what?" , "Where would you be now if you weren't a christian?" and many many more. It was intense. Few of the youths emerged red eyes moments later, a few were emotionless and some wore pondering looks. I guess everyone had something to think about then. After the session, we were required to write a testimony for ourselves. This testimony would help in times to come when you need to tell someone about Christ and serve as a reminder of why we choose to believe what we believe. 

After the session was lunch. Food was awesome as usual, but the fellowship we had was even aweso-mer. ;) The second session commenced after that. Our lovely Amy took charged of this session. She led us through a number of games, each meaning to teach us more about distractions. What is distracting you in this time, in this world? Pray about it. Later, we had 2 hours of free time. Captain ball!!! :D Everyone had fun except the teachers, they wanted to play monopoly deal. >_> *laughs* 

The third session took on a much more serious tone as we gathered to pray for the world, our country, our church and ourselves. The world: Earthquakes, tsunamis and war are frequent nowadays. They say 2012 is the end of the world, you think so? Pray for the victims of these current events, and pray for their salvation. Pray for the missionaries at these particular places, that they'll be strong in faith and just keep trusting the Lord. Our country: Corruption cases and stuff to do with the rights of each Malaysian citizen. Did it get better in year 2011? Did it really? Pray for the leaders of Malaysia, that they'll be just and not be corrupted. Pray that they'll lead Malaysia to be a better country. Pray too, for the younger ones. That many more christians will rise up to be a leader. (*coughs* Hong Ken prime minister *coughs* xD ) Our church: We often neglect the leaders and the ministries in our church, thinking they do not need our prayers. But we should learn to be more aware of these people and ministries. The elders, that they'll continue to stay close to Him and not stray from the right path because the church depends on them. For the ministries, such as tuition ministry, music and arts ministry and Sunday school. They constantly need to be kept in our prayers. Ourselves: To treasure our family members and love them before all is too late. For non-believers, that they'll accept the Lord Jesus as their personal Saviour. 

On the last day, we had our Sunday morning breaking of bread service. Followed by a short sharing from Kok Cheong about the importance of prayer. We ended our 2011 Prayer Camp with a group photo and hugs and kisses and much more laughs. Truly, through this camp, many of us youths have been touch by Him. May we continue to grow deeper in Him and let us not stray from the path of righteousness.
