December Semiannual Training

“And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, Oh that You would richly bless me and enlarge my border, and that Your hand would be with me, and that You would so keep me from evil that it would not grieve me! And God caused what he had requested to come to pass.” (1 Chron. 4:10)

This week’s Semiannual Training is being held in-person in Anaheim and by webcast in Los Angeles and around the world. This training on Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther will be the completion of the crystallization-study of the Bible.

Please pray for the release of the Lord’s timely word and burden in this training. Pray for the Lord to richly anoint the release and receiving of His word and take a further step in His move on earth to build up His Body and prepare His bride for His return.

FTTA Gospel Trips

Pray for all the planning and preparation for upcoming FTTA and FTTA-XB gospel trips in January and early February.

Bibles for America

Our hearts are full of thanks to the Lord for all He has done through BfA this year. By the Lord’s mercy, we’ve been able to give away more Bibles this year than ever before. With the generous support of our donors, we reached a wonderful milestone: in August, we gave away our 2 millionth Bible! Furthermore, since April of this year, we’ve been giving away the Basic Elements of the Christian Life to US residents. Lastly, in 2022, 1.4 million people visited the BfA Blog from all over the world.

Please pray that every person who has received a Bible over the past 22 years would be fed and nourished by the Word of God. Also pray that all the blog visitors would find answers to their questions, be nourished with God’s Word, and continue to grow in the divine life of God.

Please pray for the migration of burdened saints to six designated European cities—Barcelona, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, Rome, and Zurich. Also pray for the strengthening of the new lampstand in Lisbon and the recovered lampstand in Zurich. More details on these cities can be found at http://amanatrust.org.uk/page/reports.

European Winter School of Truth

This year’s Winter School of Truth is on “The Triune God and the Person and Work of Christ” and held in five locations between December 26 and January 2: The Netherlands (December 25 to 30); Spain (December 26 to 31); London, UK (December 30 to January 2); Leeds, UK (December 27 to 30); and Ireland (December 28 to 30).

Pray for every young person to learn and grow in their spiritual life as well as experience and appreciate the Bible like never before. May the Lord constitute our next generation with the truth for His move and testimony in Europe.

Stuttgart Meeting Hall

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 also for the planning, design, and permits needed for these renovations. A report that includes details, photographs, and instructions on how to give for this need can be downloaded from http://lordsmove.org/reports.html.

Saints in LA who are burdened to contribute may give through the Church in Los Angeles designated for ‘Stuttgart Meeting Hall’.


Please continue to pray that:

  • The Lord will keep all the saints in the involved countries open to Him for their experience of the divine dispensing in all the situations of their daily living.
  • The brothers who are fighting in the war will be preserved by the Lord in their tripartite being.
  • The Lord will shepherd the refugees and establish them in the church life.
  • 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.
  • Saints in all countries involved will be kept in the oneness of the Body and the reality of the new man.
  • The tripartite being of saints in besieged cities will be protected and preserved for the Lord’s interests.
  • The Lord will comfort and sustain those who have lost loved ones in the war.
  • The enemy will be bound in his attack on the Lord’s interests in Russia, Ukraine, and Europe.
