CFM MEDIA STATEMENT
MERDEKA DAY AND MALAYSIA DAY 2012
INVEST IN THE FUTURE OF MALAYSIA
Together with all Malaysians we give thanks to Almighty God as we celebrate our 55th anniversary of Merdeka and on 16th September we will enter into the 50th year of the founding of Malaysia. In this celebratory occasion let us dream a new dream for all Malaysians. We pray to Almighty God that He will grant us a new vision of Malaysia for ourselves and all our children.
We are a nation truly blessed with so much potential in our multi-ethnic, multicultural and multi-religious communities.
Let us forge ahead and invest in building a progressive and better Malaysia for all of us. Let us mutually share all our resources, our wealth and opportunities and be a model nation to the nations around us.
We can begin to do this by loving God and our neighbours as ourselves. Let us be responsible citizens of our beloved Malaysia. Let us care for those in need like the orphans and widows. May we meet the needs of the marginalised and others left by the wayside. In concert, let us jointly prosper our neighbours first. As Malaysians we step forward together in unity and harmony for all Malaysians and not pay heed to the strident voices of some with their narrow interests.
The churches and Christians join all Malaysians in praying for the good health and well-being of our King and Queen, the Rulers and all the Yang di-Pertua Negeri, the Prime Minister and his Cabinet, the Mentris Besar and Chief Ministers of the states, our parliamentarians and members of the state legislatures, and all the men and women who carry out their duties and responsibilities in the interest of all Malaysians.
Let us desire that justice and righteousness abound all the more and also the strengthening of our common bonds of friendship, unity and harmony amongst all peoples and religions in our beloved Malaysia.
