December Semi-Annual Training
- Pray that the Lord’s hand will follow His word from the semi-annual training, that this word would operate mightily in the saints to produce the response He desires so that He can make an advance in carrying out His move in His recovery.
- Pray for all the churches that are still carrying out (or in the future will carry out) the training via webcast, that all the webcast trainings will be well attended and be under the Lord’s blessing and protection to bring the saints everywhere into the same particular speaking and burden that the Lord has released.
The Russia-Ukraine Situation
- Pray that the Lord will meet all the practical needs of the saints as the cold weather of winter settles in.
- Pray that the brothers who are fighting in the war will be preserved by the Lord in their tripartite being.
- Pray that the local saints, serving ones, and trainees will be blended with the refugees by being through the cross and by the Spirit to minister Christ to one another for the building up of the Body.
Meeting Hall in Stuttgart, Germany
- Pray for the closing of the purchase of a meeting hall in Stuttgart, Germany, and for the release of funding (500,000€) needed for Phase I renovations.
- Pray for the planning, design, and permits needed for Phase I renovations.
Digestion of, and Entering into, the Speaking in the December Semi-Annual Training
- Pray that this week the saints in Irvine will begin a good digestion of, and an entering into, the speaking in the semi-annual training, which we believe is the Lord’s present burden for His recovery.
- Pray that the saints will gain both the objective truth and the subjective truth so that we can be reconstituted personally and corporately to become God’s testimony.
A Fresh Consecration in 2023
- Pray that at the beginning of 2023, the saints will freshly rebuild the altar, taking Christ as the absolute One to be a living sacrifice.
- Pray that at the beginning of 2023, the saints will spend much time before the Lord to consider our ways and to be made those who take care of God’s house first – preaching the gospel, shepherding the new believers, and taking care of others for the building up of the church.
New Quarter at UCI
- Pray that in the upcoming quarter, the Lord will continue to gain the many new ones contacted on the UCI campus.
The above are some of the current prayer burdens that the saints may bring to the Lord in their personal or corporate prayer; however, the saints should be exercised to follow the leading of the Spirit in their prayer.
