“In the beginning God”
Genesis is a book containing all the seeds of the divine truths. All the divine truths in the whole Bible were sown in this book. (LS of Genesis, msg. 1)
As we begin our morning revival in Genesis, let us ask the Lord to be a new beginning for each one of us. May we each gain more of the Spirit, more light, more of the Word, and experience more separation of light from darkness and more separation of spirit from soul.
Let us also ask the Lord to make Genesis 1 and 2 a prevailing gospel throughout Los Angeles.

FTTA Boston Extension

This is from a Boston graduate who is now serving there full time.

  1. The training center was not ready for the start of the fall term. Pray for the timely completion. We realize that the “delay” in its completion is not an accident but the Lord’s sovereign arrangement to bring the training to Newton (a city near Boston where there is a church).
  2. Pray for the church in Newton hosting the training. Pray for such a sweet and pleasant coordination and blending with the saints and the trainees.
  3. Pray for the 21 trainees. Pray for them to be strengthened daily into their inner man that Christ would have a way to make His home more in their heart. Pray for their continual opening to the Lord that the Lord would truly have a way to train them in their time in Boston.

Dallas, Pennsylvania

Because of their burden for increase, four saints meeting in Dallas, Pennsylvania, recently took out two ads in a local newspaper. The first ad informed people about the new two-book set from Bibles for America (http://biblesforamerica.org/newbooks) and let them know how to order the books online. The second ad read, “Friends of Watchman Nee want to meet with you and share thoughts.”
A group of six believers responded to the second ad, calling it an answer to their prayer. The saints have met with these three couples several times, and some from the group have attended the Lord’s table. They contacted another believer who responded to the ad and who touched the church in the 1970s. Additionally, the saints plan to a follow up with people in the area who have ordered the two-book set.
Please pray that the Lord would supply the saints with grace and wisdom in how to care for each person they contact. May the Lord gain many enjoyers of the ministry in this locality!
