As the famous Russian Christian and novelist Leo Tolstoy puts it:
“Seek among men, from beggar to millionaire, one who is contented with his lot, and you will not find one such in a thousand. Each one spends his strength in pursuit of what is exacted by the doctrine of the world, and of what he is unhappy not to possess, and scarcely has he obtained one object of his desires when he strives for another, and still another, in that infinite labor of desire which destroys the lives of men. He who makes 300 rubles would rather have 400; he who makes 4000 rubles would rather have 5000, and he who makes 1 million rubles would climb after 2 million, and so on to the top of the ladder. And so goes the life of men, they sacrifice their lives for this same God–Greed, and then they die, without realizing what they have lived!”
How does one approach God in prayer? What was it that this disciple wanted from Jesus in the Gospel reading when he asked Jesus, “Lord, teach us to pray.” When was the last time, that we ask someone this question? Do we even care that prayer will be answered? Or perhaps, we only engage in prayer when there is a need to be met?
Questions can direct us on a journey to explore what is possible. Assuming that this is the approach taken by the disciple, Jesus’ answer seems rather intriguing followed by a longish explanation. Do we understand the prayer taught by Jesus?
We repeat the prayer at each Sunday service after the intercessions. Some of us are accustomed to an older version owing to familiarity. Others prefer more contemporary versions that are often contextualized to our current reality. However, whatever versions that we use, does the prayer offer us any resolutions to our pleadings in prayer?
In Acts 2:42, Luke wrote – “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”
So let us meet up this Sunday at worship together,
ICB – Caring for Displaced People through partnership Life Raft International
An updated document relating to the above has now been uploaded to the Policies section of our website. The ICB Council has been working with Life Raft International for many years in seeking to relocate people to various countries for resettlement. The uploaded document gives clear parameters of our relationship with Life Raft International.

(NOTES for in-person congregation)
At our new Location
SCC Creative Space Coffee Shop
Student Christian Center
328/1 Phyathai Road
A very short walking distance from BTS Ratchatewi. Click here for Google maps reference or follow the map near the top of this newsletter.
Please remember the COVID Code:
All are advised to follow social distancing to keep others safe. A temperature check is required. We have members who have been infected lately and we do not wish others to be infected. If you are not feeling well, please stay at home and join us on Zoom. For safety precautions, the ICB Council has advised against any form of fellowship events for the time being. Bottled water will be available.
If you plan to come in your own car:
It is best to enter Phayathai Road from the Patumwan intersection (at Discovery Center/MBK) and drive across Hua Chang (elephant head) Bridge, taking the left-most lane. Then, immediately over the bridge, turn left into the SCC/CCT compound just before Evergreen Place and Asia Hotel.
There are limited parking spaces (free) just inside the compound but if full, you can park in the CCT Tower Building at the back of this same compound (there maybe a small charge p/hr)
ICB Evening Service at
Bangkok Christian Guesthouse (BCGH)
has been suspended until further notice.
Fellowship is essential for the wellbeing of any true community – but it’s not so easy when we cannot all meet personally face-to-face, and have no social events.
At ICB, we wish to develop new ways to extend Christian fellowship among all of us during 2022. We invite you to help with your ideas for such fellowship activities.
