Answering God’s Call to Turn the Age through Prayer

“And of the children of Issachar, men who understood the times that they might know what Israel should do…” (1 Chron. 12:32)

“So I set my face toward the Lord God to seek Him in prayer and supplications with fasting and sackcloth and ashes.” (Dan. 9:3)

People on earth are suffering calamities, and the churches are in hardship; this is not the age of God’s heart’s desire but the age of God’s procedures. God is using His procedures to fulfill His heart’s desire. To turn from the age of procedures to the age of God’s heart’s desire, man must pray the age-turning prayer. Daniel was such a man. The earth is suffering calamities because people on the earth do not want God and do not care for God’s affairs. Therefore, if the saints are to pray to end the time of calamities, they must answer God’s demands and care for God and His needs. Oh! These many calamities today should wake us up to no longer live to the earth! Oh! Today we should truly consecrate ourselves to answer God’s demands on behalf of the church so that God may have a way to come in and to turn this age of procedures into the age of His heart’s desire. (CWWL, 1932–1949, vol. 2, p. 27)

Labor Day Weekend Blending Conference

From September 4 to 6, the churches in the entire state of California will blend together in an online conference. Such a conference of all the churches in California is unprecedented and should be a further advance in the blending of the entire Body for the Lord’s unique testimony.

The four meetings will be conducted online and will include both spoken messages and breakout sessions for mutual sharing and blending of all the saints. Translation of the messages and all special fellowship will be provided in Chinese, Korean, Russian, and Spanish. Details regarding the meeting schedule and links to join the meetings for each language can be found at <http://www.labordayconf.com>.

Let us sanctify the Labor Day weekend by setting aside our time and presenting our tripartite beings to hear what the Spirit would speak to the churches. May the Lord infuse us with His words and His burden for His present move and interests on the earth.
