Praise the Lord, Prayer for the Nation was held on February 28, 2020 at Aula Serbaguna- Balai Besar Rehabilitasi Sosial Vokasional Penyandang Disabilitas, Ministry of Social Affairs, Cibinong, Bogor.
Bad weather did not stop employees of government institutions in district of Bogor, TNI (Indonesian National Armed Forces), Polri (Indonesian National Police), and private employees from coming to this event.
The service was opened in prayer and worship by Rev.Jhoni Kolang, followed by opening speech delivered by Mrs.Juena Sitepu, Ministry of Social Affairs.
The event was continued with prayer for the nation by Major Yohanes Heru (Kodim, Military District Command), Mrs.Juena Sitepu (Ministry of Social Affairs), Jhoni Kolang (Jangkar Iman). They lifted up prayers for the government, national security, and for the wealth and economy of this country. They also prayed specifically for all the people of Indonesia so that God protect them from coronavirus.
The Word of God was delivered by Rev.Boston Silalahi from Luke 7:11-16 which was about Jesus who raised a young man in Nain. He conveyed that Jesus Christ cares for all human beings and He knows how to help human beings because He created them. Therefore, we need to believe and have faith in Him. The people were challenged to believe in God and many of them lifted up their hands declaring that they wanted to believe that Jesus is their only saviour and helper.
A healing testimony film was shown. The servant of God read from Isaiah 53:4-5. A woman came forward to be prayed for. Still in the atmosphere of prayer, the servant of God gave a challenge to those who wanted to serve God. There were 14 people who came forward and were prayed for so that God use their lives.
God truly touched the hearts of those people who came that night. Before the event was closed, Pantai Rehabilitasi Cibinong lifted up a song of praise. Praise be to God who had visited the people who came from government offices, TNI, and Polri in Cibinong, Bogor.
