“Let the name of God be blessed from eternity to eternity, for wisdom and might are His. And it is He who changes the times and seasons; He deposes kings and causes kings to ascend.” (Dan. 2:20b-21a)
“I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings be made on behalf of all men; on behalf of kings and all who are in high position, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all godliness and gravity.” (1 Tim. 2:1-2)
The elections for the U.S. president and congress will take place next Tuesday, November 8. We pray to release on earth the authority of the “Ruler of the kings of the earth” (Rev. 1:5) for His choice of elected officials.

Southern California Young People

Over the last two weeks the young people in Southern California have been hearing a fresh word from the Lord at the junior high and high school conferences.
This past weekend the high school conferences covered the topic: Daniel – A Pattern of a Person Used by God to Turn the Age. Like Daniel and his companions, may all of the young people in LA be bold to stand with God by refusing to eat the king’s choice provision, by joining themselves to God through His Word, and by pursuing the Lord with companions.
Please pray that the word released this weekend would continue to encourage, strengthen, and operate in each young person in the coming days.

an encouragement for prayer

In Col. 1:3 Paul says, “We give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always concerning you.” In 1:9 he says, “Therefore we also…do not cease praying and asking on your behalf…” In 2:1 he says that they have never seen his face. May this encourage us likewise to pray for those we have never seen.

Rosendale, New York

On October 23, 137 saints and 22 children gathered to celebrate the first Lord’s table of the church in Rosendale, New York. After the Lord’s table meeting, which lasted 1.5 hours, the brothers gave testimonies of the Lord’s wisdom in bringing the saints in the Mid-Hudson Valley area together over the past two years. The brothers also shared their earnest desire to keep the oneness of the Spirit (Eph. 4:3-6), that the world may know the reality of Christ and the love of the Father (John 17:23).
Please pray for the saints’ stand on the ground of oneness for the Lord’s testimony and for the Lord’s blessing of life, growth, and multiplication. A two-page report describing the Lord’s move in the Mid-Hudson Valley is available at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer.

Leeds, England

The first Lord’s Table in Leeds was October 30. It was wonderful! We had the highest enjoyment. The saints in Leeds waited 10 years for this. So now there is officially a lampstand in Leeds! About 400 saints came from all over UK, Paris, and Taiwan. About 35 saints are from Leeds. Praise the Lord for His move in the UK!

Shepherding in Germany

Most of the visiting team members laboring in Germany to shepherd refugee believers will depart in the final weeks of November. This shepherding is centered in Berlin, Stuttgart, Frankfurt, and Düsseldorf, but also involves travel from these centers to places 30 to 60 minutes away. Some of the shepherding is in afternoon times when local saints are working. Please pray for a rich supply to the local saints and for the Lord’s wisdom to the teams and local saints about how to have a smooth transition of refugee care from the teams to the local saints.
Pray also for the refugee believers to grow in grace and in truth.

Europe

Four one-week trainings at Bower House began October 31 and continue until November 26. The subject is “The Four Great Pillars in the Lord’s Recovery: Truth, Life, the Church, and the Gospel.”
Attendees include saints in the churches throughout Europe and also seeking ones contacted through the spread of the ministry and the campus work. Please pray for the perfecting of the saints and the gaining of the seeking ones for the Lord’s recovery in Europe.
Attendees will spend some time with FTT London and with the church in London or surrounding churches. There will be particular fellowship regarding daily life, practicing the vital groups, entering into the spread of the divine truths throughout Europe, fulfilling the Lord’s desire that we all would be fruitbearing branches in the vine, and developing our function for the building up of the local churches.
