Prayer Burdens, week of August 1, 2021
Summer School of Truth
• Pray for the Summer School of Truth in Virginia Beach and those being conducted throughout the churches this summer that these times would be under the Lord’s blessing that this generation of young people would become those separated unto the Lord for His purpose.
• Pray that each young person would be drawn to the Lord and enter more into a personal and affectionate relationship with the Lord and pursue Him with other companions in the church life.
• Pray that the serving ones will be richly supplied to serve in newness of spirit and with the burden to impart Christ into the young people.
The Burden for the Gospel
No shepherding can be prevailing if we do not have a love for people, an interest in them, a burden for them, and adequate prayer. Love, interest, burden, and prayer are the essential, basic elements of proper shepherding. Most of us were born with no interest in people. We do not like people, and we do not wish to be bothered by them, invited by them, or visited by them. We would rather live on top of a mountain. This is our natural tendency. However, if we keep this kind of disposition, we will be finished with the building. We need to love the new ones as the Lord loves them, be interested in them, and take care of them. Then we must have a burden for them and adequate prayer. (CWWL, 1973-1974, vol. 2, “The Normal Way of Fruit-bearing and Shepherding for the Building Up of the Church,” pp. 626-627)
Please pray that we would have a love for people, an interest in them, a burden for them, and adequate prayer for them. May we even practice writing down their names, praying for their spiritual welfare constantly, call them regularly, and establishing them in the church life.
Strengthening of the Prayer Ministry of the Church
May all the saints be watchful and prayerful concerning the age that we are living in and be willing to give themselves by redeeming the times (specifically the prayer meetings of the church) and cooperating with the Lord in His heavenly ministry to carry out His eternal economy to consummate this age.
