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.

June 27, 2020

Day 9: Prayer to pray persistently as overcomers who are living by the linking faith

June 23, 2020

Pray that we will pray persistently by the linking faith, by the Triune God moving in us to link us to His unsearchable riches, knowing that the God to whom we pray is a God who hides Himself while He is doing many things for us in a hidden way, so that when the Lord Jesus returns, He will find us as His overcomers who are living by the linking faith—Luke 18:1; Isa. 45:15; Rom. 1:17b; Gal. 2:20; 2 Cor. 5:7; 1 Tim. 1:4; Luke 18:8b.

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).
