Being Watchful for Our Prayer Life

“But the prudent took oil in their vessels with their lamps.” (Matt. 25:4)

“Be filled in spirit.” (Eph. 5:18b)

“By means of all prayer and petition, praying at every time in spirit and watching unto this in all perseverance and petition concerning all the saints.” (Eph. 6:18)

In the New Testament watchfulness is wrapped up with prayer. Ephesians 6:18 tells us that we should be those watching unto prayer. We need to be watchful, on the alert for our prayer life. Watching unto this in verse 18 refers to prayer and petition. There is no way to get the oil except by praying. If you do not pray, it means that you do not pay the price to buy the oil. Through prayer we receive more Spirit. Every time we pray, we have the deep sensation that some amount of the Spirit has been gained by us in our prayer. To spend our time for prayer rather than for so many other things means to pay the price to get the oil.

Every day in the morning you must go to the Lord, saying, “Lord, thank You that I am here. Fill me up. Saturate me. Soak me. I want to be soaked in You and with You.” We need such a prayer… To pray in this way is to gain the oil in your vessel. (CWWL, 1985, vol. 5, “The Way to Practice the Lord’s Present Move”)

North America College Training Follow-Up

In Luke 4:21, the Lord Jesus, in regards to the jubilee, says, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” The one-week North America College Training concluded on July 20. Approximately 1900 students and 900 non-students attended. In this training, the Lord caused many students not just to know of the jubilee, but to genuinely experience it.

We can testify of the joy, rest and privilege of participating in the 2019 NACT. We thank the Lord for all He has done and will do, and for all the prayers of the saints. We believe that the smooth coordination, the sweet one accord, the precious anointing, and the strong impact of the college training owe very much to the prayers of the saints offered at the incense altar.

In considering the students, we feel that we need 10 more days of prayer with their continuation in view. Please persevere in co-laboring with the Lord and His Body at this critical juncture to fight for these ones to press on in the jubilee. More detailed reports and photos are at http://www.beseeching.org.

As the students return to the routine of their daily lives, please pray:

  1. That the Lord would cover them from any attacks of the enemy.

  2. That they would spend much personal time with the Lord concerning the words spoken.

  3. That they would continue steadfastly in the reading of the word right away and establish this as a lifelong habit.

  4. That they would all have the Lord’s personal appearing and would be emboldened to proclaim the jubilee on their campuses this upcoming school year.

  5. That the Lord would call many to give themselves to go to the FTTA, and that they would respond to His calling.

  6. That this training would have a long-term impact on the lives of each student and on their generation, including those who did not have a chance to attend, and would be a great blessing to the Lord’s recovery and the Lord’s move in North America and across the globe.

Pursue 2019

This summer’s special camp from August 10 to 17 in Los Angeles for our junior high and high school students is called Pursue 2019. This week, please pray:

  • for the Lord to supply and sanctify the parents and households of the young people; and

  • for the Lord to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the prudence of the righteous, to prepare for the Lord a people made ready (Luke 1:17).

Bibles for America

As a result of increasing our Facebook ads for free Bibles, the number of daily Bible orders as a whole has doubled. We also plan to advertise for Bibles in Spanish on Facebook.

Please pray that the offer for a free Bible would continue to reach God’s seekers through Facebook and other ad channels, such as Google. May many more people visit our Facebook page, place an order, and share our free offer with others.

European Young People’s Conference

From July 28 to August 3, three conferences will take place concurrently in Małe Ciche, a village in southern Poland. The Junior Conference will be for young people aged 13 to 15 and the Senior Conference for young people aged 16 to 19. The Parents and Children Conference is for the parents to get into the fellowship regarding raising up the next generation for the church life, and for the children to be with other children from all over Europe.

It is our desire that the Lord would have a way to reach each young person attending this conference, that each young person’s love for the Lord would grow and that they would consecrate themselves in a deeper and more thorough way in this conference. This requires the prayers of all the churches. We therefore ask all the churches to stand with us in prayer as we prepare for this conference and during the conference that the Word of the Lord would be prevailing!
