For the prayer meeting, we suggest taking the following verses from HWMR of Knowing the Truth, Being Absolute for the Truth, and Proclaiming the Truth in the Present Evil Age Week 1 Day 6 Eph. 6:14 Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth and having put on the breastplate of righteousness.

1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding that we might know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

European Young People's Conference (July 26 — August 15)

The general subject of the conference is Patterns of Living an Overcoming Life. The conference this year will be held regionally. For the UK, it will be held at Woodland Camp, starting with the juniors in two weeks and the UK seniors and most of the other countries the following week. Please pray for the Lord’s blessing on the YP conferences in Europe, and especially in this dark age, the Lord would gain a group of young people who will be one with Him to consummate His eternal economy by building up His organic Body for His coming back. The Church in Atlanta Gospel burden

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. North America Chinese-speaking Saints Perfecting Training (July 24 - 31)

Please continue to pray that the spoken word would perfect the saints in the truth, life, gospel, and service unto the work of the ministry and unto the building up of the Body of Christ. Distribution of the Recovery Version in Israel

Please pray for those who have received Recovery Versions in Israel over the past few months, that they would be poor in spirit and hungry for the unsearchable riches of Christ in His word. Also, pray for the long-term shepherding of these seeking ones that many of them could eventually be reaped for the testimony of Jesus.
