The Opening of Our Mouth

Ephesians 6:18b-19, “praying at every time in spirit and watching unto this in all perseverance and petition concerning all the saints, and for me, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known in boldness the mystery of the gospel.” Lord, grant us all the utterance to make Your gospel known where we are.

Human History, Divine History

In human history the United States, more than any other nation, is a melting pot. Within this melting pot God desires to bring forth the reality of the new man with people out of every race, culture, and language. The new man is the divine history in the melting pot of human history.

Europe and Beyond

Bibles for Europe reports the number of New Testaments distributed up to middle of last week was 41,689, with 13,844 distributed in the first week of the Olympic Games. (This is more divine history in human history.) Over 60% of the recipients requested further contact. Four seminars for recipients were held the past weekend and more are scheduled and planned for the coming weeks.
Please continue to pray that the Lord will

  • draw each recipient to read and enlighten each through the reading,
  • richly supply the saints laboring in the follow-up in all the nations where these recipients live,
  • shepherd many recipients into the church life.

Young People

After a wonderful summer school of truth on the topic of the church, we ask that the Lord would continue His care for all of our young people during this next school year. Los Angeles Unified School district begins Tuesday, August 14 and other schools in the area, whether private or public, will also be beginning in a few weeks. Please pray that:

  • our young people would enter increasingly into the practical church life where they live,
  • our young people would enjoy continued organic connections with one another and with college saints and community saints,
  • the Lord would provide the young people with opportunities to announce the gospel of peace to their fellow students.

European Young People’s Conference in Poland

Please continue to pray for the European young people who attended the conference in Poland July 29 to August 4. Pray that the Lord will cause the word that they heard to operate in them to supply them, save them from the world, and equip them to bear a strong testimony in their schools and in the churches.
