Many churches in Malaysia has also set aside this day to join hands with about 3 million people from around the world to pray for our nation of Malaysia. Let us as Malaysian citizens rise up to the occasion and jump in the band to pray for “Justice To Prevail” for our beloved Nation.
Many Churches with have their Church doors opened for a 24 hour prayer time in the Church. On that day Christians will gather for a time to reflect on the challenge that we all have in our daily lives to stand up for justice within our community, our country and the world. 
Let us take heed to the prophet Micah words, 
“What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8).
