Pursuing Intimacy With God
Psalm 77:6 “…My heart meditated and my spirit asked.”
2 Timothy 2:19, 21 ““Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.” Those who cleanse themselves from the latter (common vessels) will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.”
Dear Abba Father, We thank You and praise You as we enter the 5th day of prayer and fasting. Sustain us with Your strength as we spend time with You in the secret place. The psalmist in Psalm 77: 6 meditated with his heart and found You grace; Father, we also want to search our hearts carefully and diligently while basking in the presence of Your light. Father, shed Your light on me so that any sin in the depth of my heart may be revealed. Reveal to me when I have refused to repent, have been self-justifying or even been oblivious to my sins. Father, I am willing to humble myself and bow my head in the dust and ask You to help me see all the hidden faults in my thoughts, motivations, emotions, responses and desires. In the light of Your revelation, let all my hidden sins be exposed, such as pride, rebellion, unbelief, jealousy, selfishness, ambition and greed. Abba Father, I long to be close to You, closer and closer, to hear Your heartbeat. We don’t want to stay in our current state for You love us and desire us to be vessels of honor. Help us repent often and die to self; remove impurities from inside of us and let no barriers come between us so that we can have deeper fellowship with You. May the light on Your face release forgiveness and mercy, giving us new life. Your grace is like the spring rain, making us truly feel the joy of the Father!
In the name of Lord Jesus Christ we pray, Amen!
Repentance for Self 05
Isaiah 5:20Woe to those who call evil goodand good evil,who put darkness for lightand light for darkness,who put bitter for sweetand sweet for bitter!
Abba Father, signs in the heavens and signs on earth are all pointing to the fact that we have already entered into the end times. We have seen nation rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and famines and earthquakes in various places. Even as darkness covers the land, help us to rise and pray as the enemy prowls around seeking to devour.
We dwell among a generation that “calls evil as good, darkness as light, and bitterness as sweet“; there is no understanding of what is righteous or just. Lord, we need You as we live among such a perverse and rebellious generation. Encounter us! Give us a broken spirit and a contrite heart, so we can fully recognize our need to repent of our sins, transgressions, and iniquities, whether known or unknown. Help us to repent on behalf of ourselves, our family, our community and nation, and those who are in authority over us. Give us the urgency to cry out to you without ceasing, until Your grace, loving-kindness, and compassion is established in our midst so that we dwell in hope even until the end.
Lord, forgive me for failing to prioritize my time to draw near to You. I have focused on my own personal pleasures, my own plans, and have despised Your blessings and Your priorities. I have gone my own way and sinned against You. Forgive me O Lord! Give me wisdom and strength to order my days before You in this new season! Renew my spirit and increase my faith to experience Your grace of physical, emotional, and spiritual wholeness, so me and my household can rise up and love You, serve You, and glorify You in unity! In Jesus’ Name, amen!

Pray for the United Kingdom and China
ENGLAND: May the seven spirits and seven stars tread throughout England. May the living water that flows out of Your throne flood over the barren land of England and fill this land again and again. “They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy.” (Revelation 3:4)
[Background: During the 16th century, a number of new denominations originated in England. She was also the center of many revival movements during the 18th and 19th century. To name a few – Robert Morrison, Hudson Taylor and David Livingstone were all from this land. However, nowadays many churches are almost non-existent and people’s hearts are hardened and resistant to the gospel. The government also despises Christians. If Christians bring their faith to their work place, they would risk having their jobs terminated. In July 2013, same sex marriage was legalized in both England and Wales. According to statistical reports, Islam will become the largest religion within 10 years. There are 1.2 million PakistanianMuslims. It has become a major concern as they are building mosques all over the country.
The spiritual condition in England: People are seriously bound by witchcrafts, sorceries, Free Masons and Satanic worship; hence, churches are seriously affected.]
- Pray that God strengthens His children, those who have been revived and awakened: God has raised up a number of His children. We pray that God strengthens them, along with the network of prayer warriors and churches.
- Pray that God revives the dying Christians (like the church in Sardis) that they will press on for righteousness, not allowing the enemy to destroy God’s glorious church through the issue of homosexuality. Lord, breathe on them and cause the dry bones to come to life as a vast army. Let the fire of prayers burn again in England and prayer altars be established to usher in breakthrough and transformation. Lord, cover the churches in England with Your precious blood. Cause them not to fear evil but boldly proclaim the gospel. May spiritual revivals come upon the churches and those whose hearts have been cold. Lord, raise up godly Christians to influence the areas of politics, economics and media etc.
- Lord, forgive Your churches for having the reputation of being alive, but are dead, like the church in Sardis. They pursue materialism and physical enjoyment. Due to their lukewarm condition without aligning with God, they do not sense the crisis of Islam taking over England. Lord, may Your love deeply draw them to You again, revive and awaken them so that they will rise up to contend for the destiny of England and to take back what has been lost. Lord, rescue England from the invasion of Islam.
- Younger generation of Christians: Pray that England will experience the Welsh Revival again. Lord, bring those Christians with cold hearts back to the church. Lord, we ask that the zeal and fire of the “Cambridge Seven”from over 120 years ago will be restored. May the vision of evangelism be restored in the younger generation.
- Evangelize to the Muslims: May the spiritual revival of England begin with God’s children and may they bring the Muslims to Christ. There are 1.2 million PakistanianMuslims in England, and yet, there has not been a church for this people group over the last 50 years. Pray that the Lord will call those who are willing to evangelize to the Muslims. Lord, raise up churches to pastor the ones with Muslim background.
- Pray for the revival of the Chinese churches in England: that they will not only pursue wealth, but also care about the spiritual condition of England. May they rise up, along with the Caucasian churches, to contend for the destiny of England.
- Purify and revive the Monarchs of England:Thank God for Queen Elizabeth II who has been faithful in her position for many years. Lord, allow your holy fire to come from heaven to cleanse and purify the monarchs. Cause them to magnify the Lord again. Sovereign Lord, establish Your throne in England and the monarchy so that they no more adhere to humanism. Forgive them, Lord, and cause them to do away with adultery and fornication.
China – Prayer breakthrough and transformation, prepare for the 70 years fullness of time, China will walk into Gos’s appointed Destiny
- Refine Chinese Church with the fire of the Holy Spirit: As China’s economy grow accelerate, the crisis of the church also increases. Facing the temptation of mamon and the love of the worldly things and pleasurism causing the church to become complacency, losing the pure and first love for God., and the focus on mission. We pray the fire of the Holy Spirit to refine the church once again, rekindle the pure first love, and the heart to be martyred for the gospel.
- Capture the youth and children of China through the revival of God: [Current event: Publisher in Beijing has already published textbook teaching on homosexuality as correct concept. False sex education has infiltrated into China, will share more specific information concerning the content of the textbook in our next posting. Homosexually has become a serious issue.] The youth and children have grown up in a very protected environment, like the flower in the green house, they are too immature to be cultivated to take on the responsibility of the great commission. We pray especially for the church to be revived by the fire of God. Revive the youth and children, reveal to them, to draw their hearts back to God, to walk away from sins of pronography, computer gaming, sexual relationship, fornication, living together before marriage and abortion.
- Remove corrupt governmental officials, uncover any illegal business dealing, seeking only profit, irregardless of the lives of the people, making phony rice, milk, meat, oil, even health damaging chemical and preservatives etc. May God uncover all the crooked business people and governmental officials.
- May God awaken them to the first love for Jesus: May God give mercy to Chinese church, during the time of persecution, they may see that God allows persecution to refine the church, awake Chinese church to align with God, to be clear-minded and self-controlled, take back authority and enter into destiny. Because of the economic take-off in the past few years, the church began to enter comfort, compete for power, pursue financial blessings, and even the porno film through the mobile phone and computer, deeply defiled the the Chinese church, coworkers, and brother and the hearts of brothers and sisters. Therefore, the Chinese church lost the presence of God and the authority to minister and warfare.. May God forgive and cleanse the church, gain back His bride, restore the devoted love for God, seeking His face.
- were ways for God to refining the church, to awaken them to their first love, it is the good will of God, to come out of their complacency, the influence and infiltration of mamon, and the crisis of pronography. In this perversion and the influx of evil current through cell phones, satan is crumbling the church, to divert their attention from focusing on mission and contending for their destiny. May God awaken their first love for Jesus.
