One Accord for the Increase and Spread of the Church

“I beseech you, brothers, through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ…that you be attuned in the same mind and in the same opinion.” (1 Cor. 1:10)
“Truly I say to you that if two of you are in harmony on earth concerning any matter for which they ask, it will be done for them from My Father who is in the heavens.” (Matt. 18:19)
In order to have the increase of Christ for the increase and spread of the church, we must have the one accord; the Greek word for one accord is homothumadon from homo, “same,” and thumos, “mind, will, purpose (soul, heart)”. The one accord is the master key to every blessing in the New Testament; to apply the oneness is to keep it, and to keep it is to practice the one accord. (Memorial Day conf, msg 4, I, I.A)
Lord, enrich and strengthen our experience of one accord, and release many twos and threes to pray regularly for the increase and spread here in Los Angeles.

Summer School of Truth

LA’s Summer School of Truth concluded Saturday. We ask for your prayer this week for a strong continuation. Please pray that:

  • The Lord would continue to open the hearts of the young people;
  • They would experience the divine Spirit mingled with their human spirit in their daily life;
  • The young people would be blended and build relationships with each other;
  • All of the serving ones would continue steadfastly in one accord;

College Freshmen Orientation Times

In the weeks and months before the school year begins, every college has orientation times for new students. These orientations and the first two weeks of the school year are the best time for our Christian Students Clubs to contact new students. Please pray for many contacts, for continued communication with each one in the weeks after initial contact, and for them to be brought into participation in club activities early in the school year.

European Young People’s and Children’s Conferences

The conferences are July 29 to August 4 in Poland. The purpose is to provide an atmosphere of truth, love, blending, and enjoyment that imparts light and life, and builds up and inspires the young people to consecrate their lives to the Lord and take positive directions in their Christian walk.
Over 1200 young people, parents, and children are expected to attend. Please continue to pray for:

  • The Lord to release a timely word that will meet His present need among the young people of Europe;
  • The young people to receive a vision of the testimony of Jesus that they could give their lives to;
  • The binding of the enemy and all his distracting tactics;
  • The serving ones to be brought into the Lord’s heart for the young people.

The Lord’s Move in Germany

To continue the gospel trips that took place in Germany during the first half of 2016, a door has been opened for saints to serve in Germany for a period of one to three months. For more information, see http://germany2016.amanatrust.org.uk. Please pray that the Lord will burden the saints for the ongoing care of the seeking ones in Germany.
In Germany, the refugees are primarily from Syria and Iran. Those from Syria are mostly fleeing the war; a large number from Iran are Christians fleeing religious persecution. The saints have made contact with individual Iranian believers as well as groups of believers who are searching for spiritual food. We need to pray for adequate translators. We also need to pray that the Lord would have a way to quickly get more ministry books into Farsi (the language spoken in Iran) in order to feed these hungry ones.

Recent Attacks in Germany

In recent weeks, several attacks have been carried out in Germany by asylum seekers. These attacks have unsettled the Germany people and have the potential of changing the attitude of the German people toward the refugees. Please pray that the Lord as the heavenly Administrator in God’s government will maintain a favorable situation for His work in Germany and will use the recent events to open the hearts of the German people and the refugees.

Lord’s Move in Vietnam and Turkey

The current LMA newsletter presents the history and current advance of the Lord in Vietnam, where there are 45 churches with about 1800 saints meeting regularly and a larger number who meet occasionally. More than 200 young people came to a three-day summer camp earlier this month. Last year the saints bought land and now are building a training center.
The newsletter also has something about the recovery in Turkey.
