Remembering Lee Kuan Yew

You have been selfless in leading the nation.
We are blessed because you first believed.

50 years ago, you wept for a nation.
Today, this nation weeps for you.

In life, you built a nation.
In death, you united one.

Thank you, Sir.
Mr Lee Kuan Yew



The Lord is my shepherd;
    I have all that I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows;
    he leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
    bringing honor to his name.
Even when I walk
    through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
    for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
    protect and comfort me.
You prepare a feast for me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
    My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
    all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord
    forever.     Psalms 23

Lee Kuan Yew

Mystified

Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul? Why are you crying the blues?
Fix my eyes on God – soon I’ll be praising again.
He puts a smile on my face. He’s my God.

When my soul is in the dumps, I rehearse everything I know of you,
Then God promises to love me all day, sing songs all through the night!
My life is God’s prayer.

Sometimes I ask God, my rock-solid God, “Why did you let me down?
Why am I walking around in tears, harassed by enemies?”
They’re out for the kill, these tormentors with their obscenities,
Taunting day after day, “Where is this God of yours?”

Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul? Why are you crying the blues?
Fix my eyes on God – soon I’ll be praising again.
He puts a smile on my face. He’s my God.

Clear my name, God; stick up for me against these loveless, immoral people.
Get me out of here, away from these lying degenerates. I counted on you, God.
Why did you walk out on me? Why am I pacing the floor, wringing my hands over these outrageous people?

Give me your lantern and compass, give me a map, So I can find my way to the sacred mountain, to the place of your presence, To enter the place of worship, meet my exuberant God, Sing my thanks with a harp, magnificent God, my God.

Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul? Why are you crying the blues?
Fix my eyes on God – soon I’ll be praising again.
He puts a smile on my face. He’s my God.

Psalms 42-43

Wait for me… Lift me.
I will soon be praising again… He’s my God…

Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for the wonderful life I have, and because it was Your life for mine. You took my cursed life and made it good. You are my source of my inheritance and blessings. I am rich and highly favoured. I am fully protected in You and are restful in You. I am deeply loved by You. My heart is glad and joyful as Your Holy Spirit leaps and carries me. You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

Lord, You alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine.
The land You have given me is a pleasant land. What a wonderful inheritance!

I will bless the Lord who guides me; even at night my heart instructs me.
I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for He is right beside me.

No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice. My body rests in safety.
For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your holy one to rot in the grave.
You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.
Psalms 16:5-11

Give me your hand my son

Dear Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your sacrifice and divine exchange on the cross. You were despised and rejected so that
I can be accepted. You were grieved and sorrowed so that I can be in joy. You were pierced and crushed so that I can be whole. You were willingly bounded and crucified so that I could be free. And I know that You not only freed me from death and hell for eternity, but Your freedom start here today and every day in my life. Thank You, Lord, that when You set me free, it is a complete work and I don’t ever have to again go into bondage to that thing from which I was liberated. Restore my life, whatever the locusts had eaten, whatever time I have lost, whatever that is robbed from me in my sins. Help me to live in the freedom, deliverance, and restoration You have for me. Show me anything I need to be free of today. Give me a life in victory in Your name.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

He was despised and rejected—a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, punishment for his own sins! But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.   Isaiah 53:3-5

If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.   John 8:36

Lord Jesus, You are my God of my Faith and my Hope. Faith is the confidence that what I hope for will actually happen; You give me the assurance about things which I yet cannot see. My hope is in You and I find hope in Your promises. I pray that You would so fill me with Your hope, joy, peace, and thankfulness that I become strong and unwavering even in my present circumstances. Help me not to be shaken or become weak in any of these areas when difficult things happen. No matter how negative the situation or people around me are, help me to remain strong in the positive attributes of hope, joy, peace, and faith. By the power of Your Spirit, help me to overflow with Your love toward others every day. That others will know You in me.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.   Romans 15:13 (NLT)

Prayer For Deliverance From Fear

Dear Lord Jesus, You are my Peace and my Refuge. Set me free from worries for the future and fear from all the bad things that could happen to me. I break these bondages of fear, sense of doom and anxiety over me in Jesus’ name. And I set free the Holy Spirit in me that brings life and comfort in Jesus’ name. Help me to focus on your goodness and faithfulness instead on the circumstances I face today. Assure me with Your great power and I know You will see me through each challenge victoriously. Bless my health, my work, my relationships, my decisions, my finances, my friends, and my family. I place my life fully in Your hands and my trust is in You, Lord. As You walk with me, guide me on the path to complete wholeness and success in life, for Your glory.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
    will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
    he is my God, and I trust him.
For he will rescue you from every trap
    and protect you from deadly disease.
He will cover you with his feathers.
    He will shelter you with his wings.
    His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
    nor the arrow that flies in the day.
Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
    nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
Though a thousand fall at your side,
    though ten thousand are dying around you,
    these evils will not touch you.
Just open your eyes,
    and see how the wicked are punished.

If you make the Lord your refuge,
    if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
    no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
    to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
    so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
    you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
    I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
    I will be with them in trouble.
    I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
    and give them my salvation.”   Psalms 91

A Prayer To Stand Strong In Times Of Weakness

Dear Lord Jesus, I draw close to You to dwell in Your wonderfully presence. I cannot face all that is ahead of me unless You are with me to give me strength. You are my help in time of need, and You are my shield in the midst of the battle. I need Your strength and power in my life today to sustain me and keep me standing strong. I confess that sometimes I feel too weak and tired to do what You have called me to do-even in my everyday life, but you give me the will to persevere. Thank You for helping me to stand strong at all times. I know I will win, because You are with me.

In Jesus’ name. Amen

We put our hope in the Lord.
He is our help and our shield.

In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.

Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord,
for our hope is in you alone.   Psalm 33:20-22
