Peninsular Malaysia’s largest state is the home to the country’s largest national park, Taman Negara and two famous natural lakes, namely Bera Lake and Chini Lake. The royal family of Pahang traces its lineage to the rulers of the ancient Melaka Sultanate.

Genting Highlands, known as the Las Vegas of Malaysia, is the only legal-based casino on a mountain resort straddling the border of Pahang and Selangor. Tourism remains the state’s main earner.

PRAY
1. God’s blessings upon the people that they will know Him who is the source of serenity.
2. Necessary measures to reverse the environmental damage, effective management of eco-tourism. [Mismanaged tourism development in the famous Chini Lake has resulted in its ecosystem dying and high levels of bacteria in its water. This has affected the villagers, particularly the Jakun people.]
3. Freedom for those who habitually gamble in the casino, hoping to strike a fortune. [Gambling gravely affects social and family structures]
4. Freedom from all forms of superstitions and witchcraft. [Black magic ritual objects frequently found at Kuala Pahang.]
5. Pray for greater accountability and better management of the state funds. [Pahang has been listed as one of the states with the most serious financial problems.]
6. All efforts to combat drug abuse and rehabilitate drug addicts will be successful. [Drug addiction remains a chronic problem, particularly among the youth in the Felda plantation schemes.]
7. Church: play an active role in social concerns; more leaders, workers and teachers of the Word; relevant evangelistic efforts and good follow-up.

“Prayer is the breath for our spirit life, as oxygen is the sustenance for our physical life” – Rev. Richard Ong
