“The opening of God’s work on earth depends on our prayer. God’s work matches our prayer, and His work is as extensive as our prayer. God wants to do many things, but He cannot do anything if we do not pray…Our prayers are our coordination with God’s work.” (WL, The Meaning and Purpose of Prayer, pp. 34-35; published by LSM)

Abiding, Fruit, Joy

“Abide in Me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing….These things I have spoken to you that My joy may be in you and that your joy may be made full.” (John 15:4-5, 11)
Beseech the Lord for more abiding, much fruit, and full joy everywhere in Los Angeles.

South Africa

Bill Lawson is at the training in Pretoria teaching the class: The Full Ministry of Christ. He will finish the class this Wednesday. The 13 full term trainees are 9 brothers and 4 sisters. They are almost all college grads and all with excellent, preserved humanity. A good number are new to the church life and the Lord’s recovery but very open and receiving. Pray for their apprehension of the deeper truths, their growth in the divine life, and their contacts Tuesday- to Friday at the University of Pretoria. The campus is walking distance around the corner of our training center and has about 40,000 students.
When Bill Lawson leaves Pretoria, Roger Good from Anaheim arrives at the training.
(After the class in Pretoria, brother Bill travels to Kiev, Ukraine for a weekend conference May 3 to 5, then to FTT-Moscow May 7 to 10, then to Kyrgyzstan for a weekend conference May 10-12.)
