Praying parents, unite!

Jun 2017    

Praying Parents Unite (PPU) is a gathering of parents to pray in unity for revival in the family, schools, and nation. Since its inception about four years ago, there are now more than 30 schools which are covered by “praying parents groups”. The vision of PPU is for every school in Singapore to be covered by praying parents groups.

The PPU also serves as a place of connection and support for parents who are seeking to start prayer groups in their children’s schools, as well as parents looking for other parents to pray with, regardless of the level (pre-school through to tertiary) or system of education (mainstream, special needs, home-schooled, or school of life) that their child is currently in.

In the last two PPU meetings, praying parents shared testimonies on what God has been doing in the schools and re-dedicated their personal prayer altars. In addition, spouses personally and corporately repented of any and all wrongdoings in their relationships with each other so that their prayers for their children would not be hindered. Parents also stood in the gap and corporately repented of sins pertaining to the family and prayed for the nationwide restoration of the family unit.

The next PPU meeting will be held on 8 July 2017, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the Music Room of Anglo-Chinese School (Barker Road).

Please register your intention to attend at http://bit.ly/PPU-3 to assist our administrative preparation, or contact Carol (9847-6180) or Anne (8623-2866) for more information.

Hilda Toh, Tina Tan, and Anne Soh –

are parents of children in Christian mission and secular mainstream schools.
