Day 453: Prayer to break through the three layers of obstacles to the Lord’s recovery in the United States in order to gain the proper increase

Pray that the Lord would gain the proper increase for His recovery in the United States and that the saints would overcome the three blockades to the proper increase in this country—worldliness, the opposition, and the denominations—in order to gain people for the Lord’s recovery (1 John 2:15-16; Rom. 12:2; Acts 4:31; 1 Cor. 1:10).

1 John 2:15-16—Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him; because all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the vainglory of life, is not of the Father but is of the world.

Rom. 12:2—And do not be fashioned according to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of the mind that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and well pleasing and perfect.

Acts 4:31—And when they had so besought, the place in which they were gathered was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness.

1 Cor. 1:10—Now I beseech you, brothers, through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be attuned in the same mind and in the same opinion.
