Many matters require the church’s prayer. The items of prayer listed below are offered as a help to focus and enrich the prayer of the saints and of the churches. They are not meant to be restrictive or exhaustive, nor are they meant to be legally adopted. In the end, it is the Spirit who intercedes for us, in us, and through us according to God and His will. The intercessors’ responsibility is to be one spirit with the Lord and one mind with Christ to discharge the inner burden with Spirit-inspired utterances. In light of the current world situation, let us persevere in prayer with a strong spirit.

Day 8: Prayer to pray with God as our faith by speaking to “this mountain”

June 22, 2020

Day 7: Prayer to live in the divine history

June 21, 2020

Pray that we will live not merely in the outward human history but even more in the inward divine history, that is, in the church, writing God’s today’s history by being one with God in His history to carry out His ultimate move in His economy, which is focused on His central work—to work Himself in Christ into us, His chosen and redeemed people, making Himself one with us to be our life, life supply, and everything for His expression (Rom. 12:1-2; 1 Cor. 1:2; 6:17; Eph. 3:16-17a, 19b, 21a; 4:15-16).

Day 6: Prayer for a clear view of the divine history within human history

June 20, 2020

Pray that we will have a clear view of the inward divine history within the outward human history, the divine history being primarily the history of God in man, beginning from Christ’s incarnation through His ascension to become the life-giving Spirit, continuing with His indwelling His believers through God’s organic salvation to make the believers the glorious bride of Christ, culminating in Christ as the Spirit marrying the church as the bride, and ultimately consummating in the New Jerusalem as the bride, the wife of the Lamb, at the end of the thousand-year kingdom (John 1:14a; 1 Cor. 15:45b; Col. 1:27; Eph. 5:27; Rev. 19:7; 22:17; 21:9-10).

June 19, 2020

Pray that we will see the precious, excellent, and enthroned Christ—the God-man, the mingling of God and man, the centrality and universality of God’s move to carry out His economy, the worthy Lion-Lamb, the King of kings and Lord of lords—as the preeminent One in the spiritual scene behind the world situation and the center of God’s administration according to His eternal economy (Dan. 10:5-6; Rev. 5:5-6, 12; 17:14).

Day 4: Prayer to see a spiritual vision of the throne of God and the ruling of the heavens

June 18, 2020

Pray that we will see a spiritual vision of the throne of God as the center of God’s administration throughout the universe and see the ruling of the heavens by the God of the heavens over all human government on earth to match the eternal economy of God for Christ to do two great things: (1) to terminate the old creation for the germination of the new creation through His first coming, and (2) to smash and crush the aggregate of human government and establish the eternal kingdom of God in His second coming (Rev. 4:2; Ezek. 1:26; Dan. 4:25b, 26b; Acts 17:26; Dan. 9:26a and footnote 261; 2:34-35; Rev. 11:15).

June 17, 2020

Pray that we will devote ourselves to and persevere in prayer, while “discerning the signs of the times,” becoming God’s faithful channels of prayer for the carrying out of His economy with His elect for Christ’s coming, always aiming our prayer at the interests of God, that is, at Christ and the church as God’s interests on earth, for the fulfilling of God’s economy (Dan. 6:10; 9:3; Acts 6:4; Col. 4:2; Matt. 16:3b; 1 Kings 8:48).

Day 2: Prayer to be the overcomers

June 16, 2020

Pray that we will be the overcomers as the riders of the white horse—those who learn the divine truths of the gospel and proclaim the gospel of the kingdom, the full gospel, the gospel of God’s eternal economy, in the whole inhabited earth before the end of the age, as a preparation for the Lord’s coming back to bring the recovery and restoration not only to Israel but also to the entire creation—2 Cor. 4:4; Rev. 6:2; Eph. 1:13; Matt. 24:14; 19:28; Rom. 8:21; Isa. 11:9.

Day 1: Prayer to be men on earth with God’s heart

June 15, 2020

Pray that we will be in our spirit in order to be men on earth with God’s heart, men to whom heaven can be opened to see the vision of God concerning the destiny of the world, who see that the world situation is the indicator of God’s move on earth, and who realize that all the major events of human history have been arranged and matched by God in His sovereign authority for His move on earth—Rev. 4:2; Ezek. 1:1; Acts 17:26-27; Dan. 2:34-35; 5:30-31 (and verse 30, footnote 1).
