Prayer for God’s Will to Be Done on Earth

“You then pray in this way: Our Father who is in the heavens…; Your kingdom come; Your will be done, as in heaven, so also on earth.” (Matt. 6:9-10)

“And this is the boldness which we have toward Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” (1 John 5:14)

The ministry of the church is to bring the will in heaven to earth. How does the church bring the will in heaven to earth? It is by prayer on earth. Prayer is not as small and insignificant as some may think. It is not something that is dispensable. Prayer is a work. Prayer is the church saying to God, “God, we want Your will.” Prayer is the church knowing God’s heart and opening its mouth to ask for what is in God’s heart. If the church does not do this, it does not have much use on earth.

What then is the prayer ministry of the church? It is God telling the church what He wants to do and the church praying on earth what God wants to do. This prayer is not asking God to accomplish what we want Him to do but asking God to accomplish what He Himself wants to do. (CWWN, vol. 22, “The Prayer Ministry of the Church,” p. 143, 147)

LA Gospel – Ministry and Good News

“I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he who sits on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went forth conquering and to conquer.” (Rev. 6:2)

We need to pray with the full realization of God’s view of human history by seeing that the gospel is speeded up and even maximized by war, famine, and death and by seeing that we need to gain God to the fullest extent to accomplish the goal of His divine economy. (Memorial Day Conference, msg. 1, V.B)

In line with this burden, the church has been presenting a weekly Lord’s Day ministry and gospel time in English from 11:00 to 11:45 am through Zoom. The view is to warmly welcome friends and relatives, whether saved or not, as well as younger believers, to an approachable and applicable time of fellowship with singing, praying, and speaking. Recent topics have included choosing life, loving the Lord, and not losing heart amidst the current situation.

All saints are welcome to invite guests and accompany them to this time. The Zoom link is http://tinyurl.com/lachurchmeeting. Videos from the previous meetings may also be viewed and shared at any time at http://youtube.com/churchinlosangeles.

Lord, expand Your burden for the gospel in our hearts to multiply Your testimony in Los Angeles!

Semiannual Video Training – Jeremiah and Lamentations

The upcoming semiannual video training will be conducted as an online training. In LA it will be June 29 to July 7 for English, Chinese, and Korean, and June 29 to July 10 for Spanish. Messages will be scheduled for evenings and weekends.

The firm registration deadline is Saturday, June 13. Cost is $100 per person (no shared seating). Details are at http://tinyurl.com/summertrainingla.

May the Lord bring us all to the training to be infused with His word for our enjoyment, growth, prayer, and building together. May we all exercise to maintain a high training atmosphere in LA for the receiving of the Lord’s up-to-date word. Pray for the speaking brothers that the burden of this training may be fully released.

North America College Training

This summer, July 9 to 19, we will have a North America College Training online on the topic of Samuel the Nazarite. We believe that in the midst of the upheaval in the world situation, the Lord will speak a special word to us. Registration is open only until June 14. Please pray that the Lord will call many students to sign up right away and to be today’s Nazarites, separated and consecrated unto the Lord, to meet His need today!

SSOT 2020

This year’s Summer School of Truth from June 6 to 27 is being carried out SoCal-wide via Zoom. Over 150 saints from LA are participating, including more than 80 young people. May the Lord use these three weeks to encourage our YP and lead them to know the truth (John 8:32). Please pray:

  • for the Lord to gain the hearts of the YP to pursue Him during these three weeks;
  • for the serving ones to have a heart of love and wisdom to take care of the YP;
  • for the group times to be blessed with mutuality, openness, and building; and
  • for the Lord to blend the YP across LA and Southern California.

Bibles for America

BfA has a blog (https://blog.biblesforamerica.org) with helpful posts that address topics many believers struggle with or wonder about concerning their faith and relationship with the Lord. Please pray that this resource, and four additional languages at Bibles for Europe, will continue to reach people all over the earth to spread the truth. May the Lord bless these posts and cause them to make a meaningful difference in the lives of God’s children.
