Lord, Spread and Increase Your Recovery

“This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole inhabited earth for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.” (Matt. 24:14)
If we keep up to date with what is happening today on earth, we will realize that God is controlling the entire world situation for the spreading of His recovery. We need to be more aware of God’s sovereign arrangement of the world situation, more concerned about the crucial time in which we live, and more burdened for God’s move in the present world situation. (Special Fellowship, msg. 2, III.G-H)
Lord, give us more concern for Your move to spread Your recovery around the earth and to increase here in Los Angeles. Raise up more twos and threes to pray for spreading and for specific increase locally.

Summer School of Truth Starts This Week

Please pray that the Lord would answer the promise in his word to give life to our young people. John 10:10b says that the Lord came that we may “have life and have it abundantly.” Pray that this Summer School of Truth would be a time where the Lord fills our young people with Life.

A Time with the Parents

During the Summer School of Truth, on Wednesday, July 26, we would like to invite as many parents as possible to come and have a time of mutual fellowship on the important role of a parent in God’s economy in caring for both the human and spiritual development of their children.

L.A. Korean-Speaking Family Retreat

The L.A. Korean-speaking saints will have a retreat at Oak Glen this weekend, July 21 to 23. Forty-eight adults and 30 children from halls 1 and 2 have registered. We will enjoy the messages on ‘The home praying for carrying out and living out God’s economy’. Please pray that all the saints realize the importance of the family in the economy of God and receive the burden to start vital living with family members.

Emigration Training

The emigration training in Anaheim continues to August 4. About 100 are participating, among whom about 20, including Craig and Henna Hall from L.A., will migrate soon afterwards to Germany. Lord, abundantly supply these saints, bring them fully into coordinated serving, and be their wisdom and prudence with moving and all the changes they face.

Chinese-Speaking Perfecting Training

There is a Chinese-speaking serving saints training July 21 to 23 in New York, followed by a students’ training July 24 to 28.

College Trainings

Four more one-week college trainings in other parts of the country began July 14, 15, or 16. The topic is very particular on “Knowing, Seeing, and Gaining God in an Age of Godlessness.” Ask the Lord to work in everyone to:

  • willingly receive the Lord’s penetrating light to know God and be saved from the godlessness of this age;
  • aspire to be constituted with the truth in God’s word through their college years;
  • consecrate themselves fully to the Lord to satisfy Him and to bear fruit for His glory.

European Young People’s Conference

The annual conference for young people in Europe will be July 23 to 29 in Małe Ciche, Poland. There is also a simultaneous Parents’ and Children’s Conference. Please pray that the Lord will take a further step in Europe by speaking a timely word to all the European young people and their parents.

Thessaloniki, Greece

We have been endeavoring for three years to live a normal, vital church life in Thessaloniki, and we believe that the Lord is making slow but solid progress. We now have about ten adults and five children meeting regularly on Lord’s Day. Three adults are local Greeks. They are older saints but are enjoying a fresh new life with the Lord among us. A one-page report is at www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer.
Please pray that:

  • all 16 participants in the young people’s conference in Poland (July 23–29) will arrive safely and be open to receive all the speaking and enter into all the fellowship;
  • the many practical details for the October 9–13 blending tours and October 14–15 regional conference here will be met for the full pouring out of the Lord’s blessing on every attendant.
