Let’s pray for the upcoming House Church Seminar for Lay Leaders which will be from October 9 to 11. We initially planned to host 30 participants. However, more than 30 church leaders went through the registration process in less than two weeks since we opened up the online registration. Therefore, we felt the need to receive more participants than we originally anticipated. Now, we have 46 church leaders who will be coming to this year’s lay leaders’ seminar. This is the biggest number so far. But I pray that the number will continue to grow so that we can help and serve more churches understand what it means to build a church in the spirit of the New Testament and transition into doing house church ministry.
Prayer is a humble declaration of dependence on God. It is saying to God that we can’t do anything without Him. God is not using us because we are better than other churches. Rather, He is delighted to use us because we are committed to build His church in the spirit of the New Testament through prayer in humility. Therefore, let’s passionately and desperately pray to Him especially this week so that God’s churches that will be represented during the seminar will be equipped and empowered to build their churches according to God’s way in the spirit of the New Testament.
As you pray for the seminar, please use the following prayer needs to pray so that your prayer will be more specific and focused:
- New Life will go all out in serving our guests so that they can feel the love and power of house church.
- All the house church members from the hosting house churches will be fully present during the seminar especially during Saturday night house church meeting so that our guests will have the maximum experience.
- Pastor Eric will present and teach the house church material clearly and convincingly so that the participants will be fully committed to support their pastors who are trying to do house church ministry when they return home.
- All the shepherds and wives who are asked to share their testimonies will pray hard, prepare well and share their testimonies with conviction, integrity and passion.
- All the volunteers that are needed will be recruited and they will serve joyfully.
- Through this seminar, the represented churches will commit fully to implement house church ministry and, as a result, experience VIPs coming to know Christ and becoming disciples of Jesus!
- Everyone who is involved in the seminar will experience God’s abundant blessings.
- Our hearts will ache and break for God’s churches all over the world that are hurting and struggling without knowing the direction and we will make a greater commitment to do whatever it takes to fulfill God’s will for us which is to serve other churches as a resource church.
- We will have great weather and no accident all throughout the seminar.
- New Life will get more visibility in order to share and spread house church ministry all over the world!
Thank you so much for your faithful and sacrificial ministry! Please read and meditate on these two passages as you serve during this year’s seminar.
“He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives the one who sent me. Anyone who receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and anyone who receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man will receive a righteous man’s reward. And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward.” (Matthew 10:40-42)
“Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:58)
