YOUNG PRAYER WARRIORS AT COCHRANE ROAD SCHOOL (Circa 1973 -74)
Let me continue with how I first attended the KL JSM.
Sometime in year 1973 when I was on my way to BETHEL BAPTIST CHURCH
I used to pass by the JESUS SAVES MISSION in Jalan Kenanga, KL, which is conducting a Church Service as well. Someone invited me to attend the Meeting. So I decided to check it out.
Brother Samuel Loh & Kok Wei spoke to me. (I couldn’t recall what they said). Then they closed in prayer
And this is their very red hot fervent prayer in confession
PLEASE FORGIVE US OUR SINS FOR OUR THOUGHTS ARE EVIL, OUR LIPS ARE UNCLEAN, OUR HEARTS ARE WICKED, OUR EYES ARE LUSTFUL AND OUR HANDS ARE SOILED WITH SINS…….”
While Brother Samuel Loh laid bare his soul in confession Brother Kok Wei who stood beside said
“IT’S TRUE LORD. IT’S TRUE”
“IT’S TRUE LORD. IT’S TRUE!” AMEN.
These were very fervent heart rending confessions!
Ha! I was totally taken aback and shocked!
In the Baptist Church I never heard this kind of prayer or confession. It was but a very formal cold type of prayer
And so I was afraid.
I didn’t go back to the Jesus Saves Mission until one day I decided to hear their Sermon on Sunday.
I heard how they prayed. I was curious to know how they preached.
To be continued….(August 19, 2019 entry)
Today we will share on how they preached
One night Rev. (Dr) Peter Ng was in KL for preaching
His message was on Esther, Mordecai & the wicked Haman
Never have I heard such a powerful, piercing and penetrating sermon before.
The words came forth like a sharp sword piercing into the very innermost soul
I was astounded, speechless & humbled under the mighty power of the Word!
12 For the word of God is quick (alive), and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.(Heb. 4:12)
From whence cometh such power?
The words came not in word only, but also in power & in the demonstration of the Holy Spirit
Later I attended the All Night Prayer from 10pm Friday night to Saturday 4am (a 6 hour marathon of earnest prayer, interspersed with singing praises & hymns
Ha! This is the secret of his power. Power through prayer! A powerful praying pastor will also be a powerful preacher. Prayer & preaching power go hand in hand
But how was the Sermon prepared?
For that it will be another story when we enter SOM (School of Mission) in Singapore from 1975 to 1978
May God have all the Glory & Praise
