“If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.” (John 15:7)

The real significance of prayer is to contact God in our spirit and to absorb God Himself. Prayers in which we contact God, inhale God, absorb God, and are filled with God are genuine prayers. If we would have genuine prayers, we must pray in the Holy Spirit; praying in the Holy Spirit means that we and the Holy Spirit pray together in the fellowship of the two spirits. (Week 1 outline, I, I.C, D)

Young People

High school conferences are March 22 to 24. Junior high school conferences are April 5 to 7; registration deadline is March 24. May the Lord use these conferences to infuse our young people with Himself as the strength to stand for Him and not be carried away by the current of this age.

Bibles for America

The gospel trips to eleven target cities in North America concluded mid February. Over 6,000 copies of the New Testament Recovery Version and the ministry books were given out, as well as over 17,000 gospel tracts and BfA brochures. About 1,500 people were open for further contact and nearly 250 came to either a home meeting or seminar. Though the trips are over, the saints in these cities continue to shepherd and care for the many seeking people they met during this time.
Please pray that the saints in these areas would be strengthened and supplied for their long-term labor. Pray also that the Lord burden some to migrate for the sake of His testimony in these cities.
