The Methodist Church in Malaysia organized its own school of Intercessors at the Port Dickson Methodist Centre from the 13th - 15th June 2016. 250 intercessors from all the annual conferences gathered to worship God and gain knowledge and inspiration on how and what to pray for the country and the church. In this school all the intercessors were challanged to be watchmen - who will boldly intercede for individuals, church and country.
Apart fom plenary talks and group prayers, the MSI also provided platforms for the participants to pray through different stations. These stations - the National Prayer Stations, and Personal Prayer station, gave ample opportunities to all the participants to ponder and cry out to our Lord in prayer.
In the closing challenge, Bishop Ong Hwai Teik called the intercessors to use the example of the people of Issachar in the Old Testament, who, after knowing the times, knew what was needed and took action by getting involved with the work of God through King David.
“... if my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14) “from Issachar, men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do...” (1Chronicles 12:32)
