Ten years ago, churches and Christians in Singapore gathered at the very first National Day Thanksgiving Service as one Body in Christ to pray for our country. On August 12, 2004, as Prime Minister Mr Lee Hsien Loong was being sworn in, Singaporean Christians prayed for our nation, its Cabinet, its Parliament and its Civil Service.

This spirit of unity and love for our nation has not wavered over the past decade, as year after year saw the return of this key event in the local Church body, organised by the National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS). Born out of a desire to pray and worship together as a community of believers, the event is attended by diverse people: clergy and lay leaders of the Church, politicians, government officials, civic and community leaders, and church members.

Yet, their goal remains the same: To come together to praise and thank God for His merciful blessings on Singapore, and to pray for the country’s continued peace, prosperity and stability.

This year’s service will be held at the historic venue of St. Andrew’s Cathedral, following a simple form: a time of thanksgiving and prayer, anthems and scripture reading. The newly-elected President of NCCS,

Bishop Dr Wee Boon Hup, will preach a sermon titled “Arise, O LORD!”, based on Psalm 9:19.

Will you come and join Christ’s Body in praying for Singapore?
