Prayers for the nation and for release of ISA detainees

Mustafa K Anuar reminds of what ‘Living in the holy month of Ramadan’ means:

Ramadan, the ninth month of the Muslim year, is a time to fast for the sake of God, and to offer more prayer than usual.

During Ramadan, Muslims seek forgiveness for past sins, pray for guidance into the future and for ways of avoiding daily evils, and also to try to purify themselves through self-restraint.

It is also during this month that Muslims are required to make extra efforts to spread love, peace, harmony and goodwill.

Hence, in the spirit of Ramadan, I pray that Malaysians, irrespective of their ethnic and religious backgrounds, would make an extra effort to work together towards our collective happiness, peace and harmony.

Furthermore, in the spirit of love and peace, I also pray for the early release of ISA detainees Raja Petra Kamarudin and Teresa Kok as well as other detainees in Kamunting.

May God bless us all.

Jamaah Islah Malaysia (JIM) deputy president Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh, for his part, tells us why the ISA is against Islam.

Meanwhile, a special Mass will be held at the Holy Spirit Cathedral in Penang at 8.00pm today to pray for justice and peace in our nation and for the early release of all ISA detainees.

Over at the Bangsar Lutheran Church in Kuala Lumpur, Sivin Kit informs us that a silent prayer vigil will be held tomorrow, 16 September (Malaysia Day) from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. “People can come and pray for 5 minutes, or others 50 minutes, it’s up to them,” he says.

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18-19

And here is a prayer published in yesterday’s Herald:

A prayer for our nation

Let us proclaim the name of the Lord;
And ascribe greatness to our God!

Lord your work is perfect.
And all your ways are just.

Let Your voice be heard today by all the nations!

O God, Judge of the nations,
Put fear into our hearts
So that we may know that we are only human.

Father, the whole of creation groans and labours
to be delivered from the bondage of corruption,
into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Lord Jesus, send forth Your Spirit of Truth and let this Spirit prove to ‘the powers that be’ how wrong they are about sin, righteousness and judgement.

O Lord, declare the power of your works to Your peoples and let us be filled with the knowledge of Your glory as the waters cover the sea.

Gather us O Lord in Your name and may all worship the One True God. Amen.

(A prayer composed from various Scripture verses of the Bible)

We serve a living God! Heb 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Eph 1:16 Cease not to give thanks for you (RPK & Teresa Kok), making mention of you(RPK & Teresa Kok)in my prayers.

Please join forces to pray for their early release and from harm.
