| 40 days of fun and laughter



poking makes dimples bigger *koff*


For such an event, all we had was 2 and a half nights of practice. The first night, we practiced two songs, Lebih Dari Pemenang and Mujizat Itu Nyata. The second night of practice we ran through all the songs. The half night was at the venue itself where it sounded quite bad from upstage. So yea, if it sounded good that Friday, it wasn't our doing, it was God's.


what good is an instrument without it's Player?


likewise, what good are our works without God's hand in it?


It would be very long to type out all that happened that Friday so I'll try to be brief.. try.. I'm not good with briefs.. I wear them though but nonetheless, I'm still not good with'em. ahaks~


let my lips sing Your song, let my mouth sing Your praises all day long


It started off pretty slowly with the national anthem, marching, flags and stuff. Then the intro riff of Lebih Dari Pemenang kicked in on high gear. People were a little stoned but receptive nonetheless. Elaine led the people into worship with Mujizat Itu Nyata while Jess played the violin!! The final song, Pastor ended the worship beautifully, giving glory to God with the song How Great is Our God.


Name above all names, You are worthy to be praised


Rev Wong Kim Kong gave a speech after worship. Singers get to sit on the front row chairs, musicians, sat on stage. hur hur~ This year, NECF plans to do a, mobile rukun tetangga. Honestly, it was quite a shocker to hear that but I guess it's just me. Me no like the police.. only nice ones though like the guy who belanja'ed me roti bakar when I was in high school.


let my hands do Your work, let my feet go Your way


Then we had communion and we sang one of my favourite songs, The Wonderful Cross, from there we had a bunch prayers for the pastors, people and the event itself during which we sang You Deserve The Glory. Pastor James closed the event and we played Lebih Dari Pemenang again but this time, we rocked it out. heh~


for the Father above, He is listening with love


The funny part during the closing was to see the bunch of youths in the front jumping and praising God with all their hearts and then when you tilt your heads up a little, you'll see the row of MMU students just standing there, mouth half-open, with the usual stoner face. Hahahah~


MMUcf! w00t!! *ahem* to God be the Glory - amen~



it was fun to play with you guys.. again~ rockin on for Christ


So another tiring and exhausting day had just ended. Most of us ran a whole-day-shift with an early morning 8am class and without rest till after the event. Personally, I was already tired even before the event started but I guess I had some Dude backing me up. Now that the 40 Days Fast and Prayer has launch, let us pray~

let us pray

i hear you say your heart is aching
you've got trouble in the making
and you ask if I'll be praying for you please
and in keeping with convention
i'll say yes with good intentions
to pray later, making mention of your needs

but since we have this moment here at heaven's door
we should start knocking now, what are we waiting for?

let us pray, let us pray, everywhere in every way
every moment of the day, it is the right time
for the Father above, he is listening with love
and He wants to answer us, so let us pray


so when we feel the Spirit moving
prompting, prodding and behooving
there is no time to be losing, let us pray
let the Father hear us saying
what we need to be conveying
even while this song is playing, let us pray

and just because we say the word, "Amen"
it doesn't mean this conversation needs to end

let us pray, let us pray, everywhere in every way
every moment of the day, it is the right time
let us pray without end and when we finish start again
like breathing out and breathing in, let us pray


let us approach the throne of grace with confidence
as our prayers draw us near
to the One who know our needs
before we even call His name

let us pray, let us pray, everywhere in every way
every moment of the day, it is the right time
for the Father above, he is listening with love
and He wants to answer us, so

let us pray, let us pray, everywhere in every way
every moment of the day, it is the right time
let us pray without end and when we finish start again
like breathing out and breathing in, let us pray


our Father which art in Heaven
hallowed be Thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in Heaven
let us pray
