Late last week, two youths (brothers) were sentenced to five years imprisonment each, for setting fire to the Metro Tabernacle Church in early January. To read more, please refer to this The Star newspaper article. A week or so earlier, another youth was acquitted of the offence due to lack of evidence. And if you were to read this other news report about what one witness testified and what the judge found of another witness' account, it makes you wonder why the court proceeding is just like another summon to the principle's office - where the naughty boys are telling the headmaster whatever that springs to their mind just to cover their asses. Obviously these dudes don't understand the severity of lying in court and probably are expecting some 'unseen powers that be' to put up a big show but save their hinds eventually. Very sad case indeed.

A similar situation is occurring in Indonesia. The government has bowed to the pressure of radical Muslim groups, allowing the church attacks to continue and one town council even shut out the church from a venue they usually congregate at. To read more about this issue, you can read either this secular news Website report or another one from a Christian news site

We are so blessed in the sense that we are able to legally exercise our right to practice our religion. So much so that we have taken it for granted till the point where we did not hear the alarm bells ring. Little by little, this right is being taken away (I leave you to make your own conclusion on what I'm referring to).

We need prayer.

You Said (Hillsong Music Australia)

You said ask and you will receive
Whatever You need
You said pray and I’ll hear from heaven
And I’ll heal Your land

You said Your glory will fill the earth
Like water the seas
You said lift up your eyes
The harvest is here
The kingdom is near
You said

Ask and I’ll give the nations to You
O Lord that’s the cry of my heart
Distant shores and the islands
Will see Your light
As it rises on us
