The spirit of unity is propelling Malaysian churches forward and this is evident in the new movement started a few years back called Dream Malaysia. RunNat is proud to be part of this movement and we pray that we will be effective in fostering greater unity amongst the churches!

Runner crosses Finish Line
For an extensive coverage of Dedication Day and RunNat Day 2012 in the Klang Valley read Christianity Malaysia’s articles:
From Lost Sheep to Runner for God (2010-2011) to Building new Prayer-Runners in Nepal (2012)
By Loh Yuen Tuck
Celebrating the finish of the first ever RunNat Nepal (YT Loh on extreme left)
I personally witness the seedling and building of the first Run for the Nation Nepal 2012 that took place along the busy streets of Kathmandu city@ 6.15 am October 6th by God’s divine appointment and grace. It was really by His design and purpose, as I had already registered a team in AG7 Pantai Sector for RunNat Malaysia 2012. God always has a better plan and all He ask of us is to boldly take that step of faith with His strength and not ours. No doubt there were many encouragement with brothers in Christ alike for example the chairman and founder of RunNat Malaysia Victor Chua whom I first knew in year 2010 (my mentor for my first RunNat participation) took responsibility to assist in terms of resources and planning. In Nepal two brothers in Christ namely Buddhi Khadka from Nepal Bible Church and Franklin from Living Baptist Church took on the task to plan the prayer routes and gather the prayer warriors together. The body of Christ indeed works best together when we are in sync with the fruit of the Spirit for His kingdom sake.
In late September when I found out that my Nepalese friend Buddhi’s wedding in Nepal was on the same week as RunNat Malaysia I prayed really hard as to what the Lord wanted me to do. I sensed it was not a coincidence that Buddhi was also one my prayer team-mates in RunNat Malaysia 2011. To start a prayer run in a foreign country at a short notice and with limited resources is not easy but you know you can rely on the Holy Spirit and godly friends to undertake this responsibility. If God can put you up to it He will surely take you through it too. I am truly amazed by the path He has taken me from the time when I was a RunNat rookie in 2010 to using me to plant new prayer runners in Nepal in 2012. The good news is that this seed planted amongst the Nepalese brothers and sisters in Christ, is the exact seed that was planted in me in Kuala Lumpur which has now grown, maturing and is now being replicated by faith. God plants the seeds of faith, not us. All glory to Him!
RUNNAT DAY CORPORATE PRAYER AND DECLARATION
We come before you as
fore–runners, paving the way
for Your Kingdom to come and
Your will to be done in MALAYSIA
We acknowledge and repent of the many
times we have sown negative words over
our beloved Malaysia,
even believing that things will never change,
but Lord, You have put a new spirit
into our hearts as we ran and prayed
This Jubilee Year day will be a memorial to us
that we will be a generation who
will be like Elijah who declared
the word of the Lord, showing the
people that it is He who is in control
not the spiritual powers of evil,
demonstrating to all that You are the
Sovereign Lord over MALAYSIA,
that righteousness and the fear of God prevails,
not man or lifeless idols,
turning hardened hearts back to You
As we ran and prayed, we spoke
what is, over what is not,
declaring Rest, Release and Restoration
into the dry bones of this nation,
this Jubilee Year.
We believe You have heard us and
that You are already at work transforming,
changing the hearts of all
in the 8 spheres of influence in MALAYSIA
and raising up God fearing men and women and Christians in key positions there.
We continue to declare Your word,
announcing THAT DAY when
everything that was lost in
the 8 spheres in MALAYSIA to the
enemy will be RESTORED,
the captives set free
and Jesus Christ will reign forever.
We’re also preparing the way for ourselves
that we will be Your instruments of
transformation in our own community,
Speaking Up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
Declaring Your word and doing what is right.
We ask that You continue to uphold us
with this new spirit of intercession and good works.
This we ask in JESUS Name. AMEN
