Invitation to Join the Global 40-Day Prayer and Fasting – Unity, Revival, Harvest
The Global 24/7 Prayer Wall will spearhead a new ‘40 Day Fast and Pray from August 20, 2019 to September 28, 2019. We believe that God wants to lead the nations into a new season of closer connections. New level of breakthroughs, transformations and anointing will break the deadlock and bring about a new wave of revival into our nations. Therefore, at this critical moment, especially with:
- the re-election of the Prime Minister in September this year in Israel
- the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China
- unrest in Hong Kong
- next Year’s Presidential Election in Taiwan and the United States
- the Global Islamization, e.g. Europe is at her critical turning point that the Islamization today has evolved from “quantitative change” to “quality change
- the Gay culture and homosexual education infiltrate and poison the minds of our next generation
- The global economic situation
We believe that only through the continuous united fasting and prayers of global Christians and the 24-hour day and night prayers, overwhelming victories and breakthroughs will come to all nations. And God will rise up to an unprecedented spiritual awakening to transform our cities and nations that the Holy Spirit will hover, reign and bring transformation on seven mountains (religion, family, education, media, politics, commerce, art).
To God be the Glory, we are grateful for God to answer our prayer in unity and brought victory and spiritual breakthroughs to many nations in 2018. Our mandate for 2019 is to connect our hearts as one, sanctify ourselves, repent and turn our hearts to God. God will raise up the dry bones into a holy victorious army and follow the Captain of the host to make spiritual advances to possess lands and to harvest souls!
Joel 2:12-14 “Even now,” declares the LORD, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. Who knows? He may turn and relent and leave behind a blessing— grain offerings and drink offerings for the LORD your God.
- Unity : When the Global churches connect as one church to pray in unity to break the work of the devil and bring about city and national transformation.
- Revival: Revival started from repentance. We believe that greater awakening and revival will surely come to personal, family churches and nations with powerful kingdom-wise prayer movement. It is through united corporate prayer and repentance that mountains be removed, national calamity be stopped, epidemic be controlled, wars be turned to peace, economy be recovered， corruption be wiped out, racial conflicts be reduced, political crisis be stabilized, government authorities turn to Jesus and open doors for evangelism, evil powers of darkness be expelled and the captives be set free.
- Harvest: We believe that this prayer movement will release the power of corporate prayer and authority to defeat the ruler of the kingdom of the air and the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedience. Children of God will experience glorious visitation of Holy Spirit and they will be empowered by Holy Spirit to enter into end-time harvest, especially in the 10/40 window countries.(Acts 2)
Hereby, we cordially invite you to participate in the global 40-day prayer and fast of 2019. Please click here to register on line if you wish to receive daily prayer from us. We hope all nations can participate. We believe your participation will bring the Holy Spirit outpouring and transformation to your own nation and the world.

Letter From Home: Chinese Homecoming Gathering – Oneness
by Pastor Hsu from New Jersey
I didn’t do much at his Hong Kong Homecoming, the airplane was delayed for 17 hours due to the weather, sat on the plane for 5 hours, then got off, waited for another 12 hours at the airport, finally arrived Wednesday afternoon, left earlier on Saturday morning, so my total stay in Hong Kong was only two days plus one night, plus jet lag, but it’s all worth it. A gathering of more than 10 thousands people, what are we doing there? Do we need to get on the stage to have our faces seen? No. What we want is to show Father God our heart in oneness. Understanding this proves our maturity in the Lord. We offer up our obedience – those who need to come, come; those who need to stay, stay. People can not see our heart, but God can and considers it precious. God is touched, comforted and happy, so He takes what we offered as 5 loaves and 2 fish, as jars of water turning into wine. Beyond language, background and nationality, beyond history, hurt and hate, supernaturally God works and amazingly step-by-step we become one. Truly the dwelling of God is with men! …Click to read more

Pray For Israel
Pray for Israel: Pray for Israeli Election in September
【Background: The Israeli election campaigns are in full swing. By 7/31 all parties or coalitions have submitted their lists in order to be eligible to run in the September 17th elections. There were a lot of jostling for positions and agreements/disagreements happenings before that. Many Israelis are running on summer-mode. We surmise that most are not paying attention to the campaigns or are so burned out by all the political shenanigans that they just do not care. However, before the Election Day, we must continue to pray for those who will serve in the government.】

Oh God, You carry the Israeli government on Your shoulders. We ask You to raise up a generation of young leaders like king Josiah to sit on the throne of David. We declare and believe that You are preparing them to govern the land in both the local and central government of Israel. They will follow the ways of their father David, not turning aside to the right or to the left, and they will follow after Your own heart (2 Chronicles 34:1-3). With the fear of the Lord and knowledge and understanding, they will lead the people like a shepherd. We ask You to surround them with counselors who can hear Your voice that they might govern the people according to Your will. Let all levels of the government work together in one heart and let them usher in the wind of change to refresh Israel. Oh Father, establish Israel in righteousness and truth forever. Let the zeal of the Lord Almighty accomplish this.
We pray in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen.

Ebola virus is a common virus for humans and animals, and the infection route is “bodily fluid infection ” Symptoms include vomiting and diarrhea, body aches, high fever, and body bleeding. The mortality rate is 90%. It is one of the most horrible infectious diseases in the world.
- Rebellion Conflict and Conspiracy Theory: The WHO investigated the epidemic in the “ Northern Kivu Province ” and “Ituri Province” , which are in conflict with the eastern border rebellion and civil war. Since October 2018, there has been a fierce clash between anti-government forces and government forces. However, the “conspiracy theory” is prevails among the people- the legendary Ebola virus is a fake news, the virus is brought by the central government and the Western forces, the epidemic prevention personnel are human traffickers who steal blood and steal organs, and some epidemic prevention personnel are being killed repeatedly by the mob, causing the virus to deteriorate and get out of control. It is now on the verge of collapse.
- Trust Disintegration And Terrorist Threats: The control of the epidemic requires strict isolation control. The medical team needs the full support and assistance of the government and the community, but the corrupt government has long lost the trust of the people, and many procedures cannot be carried out. ISIS from Syria is also took advantage of the situation to cause trouble. A terrorist attack was launched near the epidemic area. At the same time, war criminals of various races existed in North Kivu.
- Restrictions On Inferior Rescue Conditions: The shortage of materials and the difficulty of logistics in the rural front-line , can not reach the basic requirements to control the epidemic; several unexpected explosions make the epidemic doctors needing a safe rescue environment urgently.
- International Neglect: Although UN, Red Cross, WHO, MSF, peacekeeping forces, and other humanitarian agencies have all invested in the epidemic. According to statistics on July 15, 2019, the number of vaccines, epidemic prevention, international support and civil assistance, none was able to help effectively.
- Local Burial Custom: The ground burial custom is not conducive to the complete elimination of Ebola virus, but the traditional concepts and customs of Africans are difficult to change.】

Letter From Home: Chinese Homecoming Gathering – Oneness
by Pastor Hsu from New Jersey
I didn’t do much at his Hong Kong Homecoming, the airplane was delayed for 17 hours due to the weather, sat on the plane for 5 hours, then got off, waited for another 12 hours at the airport, finally arrived Wednesday afternoon, left earlier on Saturday morning, so my total stay in Hong Kong was only two days plus one night, plus jet lag, but it’s all worth it. A gathering of more than 10 thousands people, what are we doing there? Do we need to get on the stage to have our faces seen? No. What we want is to show Father God our heart in oneness. Understanding this proves our maturity in the Lord. We offer up our obedience – those who need to come, come; those who need to stay, stay. People can not see our heart, but God can and considers it precious. God is touched, comforted and happy, so He takes what we offered as 5 loaves and 2 fish, as jars of water turning into wine. Beyond language, background and nationality, beyond history, hurt and hate, supernaturally God works and amazingly step-by-step we become one. Truly the dwelling of God is with men!
It is the 7th time, but the 9th year of “Homecoming” in Hong Kong. The atmosphere in the first night is like the last – celebration! Same as the 2nd and 3rd night. It is present perfect tense, not future tense! Some may not understand, but why would it matter? We are like pieces of puzzle, as long as God knows, that is enough. For those who have walked with the Family Journey for many years, they all sensed that we have moved to a new level and the unity in John 17 has become a reality. On an empty canvass God has painted an eternal picture, from nothing into something, from just a few to nations, from one generation to multi-generation, from no relationship to oneness. God has done so much – countless stories on stage and off stage, personal ones as well as national ones…, only because there is a group of people, willing to humble, lay down oneself, determining to cross the politics, religion, history, language and all hindrance, setting their mind to embrace each other just to please God…, so God sent His words, angels dispatched and the darkness fled. God is the painter, It’s His hand behind al these…
In 2013, we did a prophetic act: Leaders of the nations took grapes, crushed them and put in one bowl – I am in you and you in me. After years of waiting, carefully preserved with no contamination, now the crushed grapes has become fine wine. Through 10 years of Family Journey, full of blood, sweat and tears, God weaved us together fabricating His work in our lives. The quintuplet representatives came on stage holding the bottle together, poured the wine into a big bowl, releasing the fragrance of the Lord. Our hearts rejoiced, God’s heart comforted, angelic hosts and cloud of witness cheered! What‘s the secret? Only the little grapes willing to be crushed, poured out before God, wanting to satisfy Father’s heart, and that has caused God to do such a great thing!
When the key of leadership was handed over to the Chinese in 2012, we didn’t have any clue how to lead. Since we don’t know anything, we can only seek the Lord. The only thing we have is our determination to corporately continue to submit to the Lord, whatever God says we will follow. The Holy Spirit only leads those who don’t know, since those who think they know will not seek Him. So this little seed started in Canada spread to greater Chinese, then to Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Israel, Europe, Egypt…, flowers are blooming everywhere, healing is happening, orphans become sons and daughters, pastors become fathers and mothers, lives are being transformed, the concept of church is greatly amended. When we come together, we do not talk about ministries, just love on each other, family is being formed, we also bless the government… God turns what is not possible to possible, does what we can’t do or didn’t do. God restores church to family, thousands years of ministry mindset are changed, not because it was wrong, but because our knowledge of God are being expanded. Fathers and mothers appeared, sons and daughters emerged, the cold structure of miniseries shifted to passion of loving one another, church has truly become family, I can hardly believe it! Being a pastor for almost 40 years, I often say, “No great ambition I have, only wish church is a family.” And now it is truly happening! The hurt and wound healed, thousands years of legalism hovering the church driven away, leaders become fathers and mothers, sons and daughters rise up to align with them. We have been through countless crushing in this process, shed many tears…, and finally we understand – God wants us to lead the nations not by preaching high and loafy theology but through presenting the family love like an old bottle of fine wine to bless nations.
Because of this whole series of healing and transformation in recent years, God is raising up the next generation in an amazing speed. Young people are simple, they hate hypocrisy, they are watching with their bright eyes, to see whether we are sincere when we embrace them, whether we really mean what we say, or truly release them to be themselves. We told them, “Don’t tremble when talking to us, don’t perform in order to please us, don’t need to dress or talk like us, we now repent of our being religious…” They also say to the older generation, “You kept saying you love us, you accept us, we were afraid to disappoint you. But now we sense you really mean what you say, you truly want us to stand with you, you say we don’t need to be afraid of failing in the family, it is real that we are allowed to make mistakes, it’s true that you can still love even being offended…” They no longer see their parents’ belief as being religious, but begin to see Christ in their parents’ lives, and they are no longer disappointed. Therefore one by one they stick out their head, stand up, and tell themselves they can trust, they can follow, they are even willing to go across the gap, the disagreement and the division, to receive the blessings and legacy from the older generation. 10-15% of this Homecoming attendees is over 60 years old, 40-50% is under 40 years old. In the last few years, the young people suddenly have grasped the true heart of the Homecoming. Aligning with the older generation, they are ready to take up the baton to protect this family with their love and life. Hearing this at the leaders’ meeting, David Demian couldn’t help himself and broke out crying, we cried also. Together we offered up the fruit which the Lord has done in us to the Lord. It’s no longer a theory, but reality. May this day, on this land, Father God find His dwelling place, and delight Himself among us – His genuine disciples who truly practice loving one another.
God’s church is being restored from institution to family, from self focus to Kingdom awareness, from minding one’s business to connecting in one heart, from self centeredness to understanding Father’s heart… This change is huge, history is in the making! In worshipping, dancing, declaring, making covenant under the white wedding huppah, taking communion with ten thousand and more people together, we all cried many tears. I cried, because I think of Father God, how happy He must be at this moment! How comforted His heart is! From Genesis to Revelation what God has been dreaming of is finally coming to past – Behold, the dwelling of God is with men! (Rev 21:3) This is no longer an old testament story, nor something for the millennium, it is happening now. What Jesus prayed for in John 17 – may His children become one, is happening right before our eyes. It’s not a slogan, it’s flesh and blood with tears; it’s visible, tangible, with heartbeats; it’s alive, it’s real. As the city is facing severe conflict and turmoil out on the streets, we declare: in the blood of the cross, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, and oversea Chinese, the quintuplet, will become one and nations will line up with God and will love one another as a family! By our fallen nature this is impossible but with God it is possible – The Israel spies facing the giant in Canan is impossible; virgin Mary bearing a child, impossible; Zechariah’s wife getting pregnant, impossible; but from the beginning of time God is looking for a group of people who believe in Him in spite of the impossibles, then God will turn the impossible to possible. I believe soon we will see more of the spiritual accomplishment manifested in the natural.
In the three days we gave God our highest thanksgiving and praise, we offered Him the greatest honor. He did miracle, turned water into wine! We sang, “Only you are eternal Father, Your name is beautiful above all the earth, how thankful we are…” We sang, “His love lasts forever, His faithfulness lasts forever, His power never changes…” It’s 9 PM yet we were still singing, dancing, our hearts full of thanksgiving and our eyes filled with tears. We sang again and again, “We are thankful, You are faithful!”
In the Family Journey, we learn to keep our spirit activated, not only in prayers or preaching, but in daily life. Not to seek God with our mind, but to discern Holy Spirit through our spirit. “For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.” (1 Cor 2:11) Our spirit needs to be born again and kept activated so our mind be renewed and transformed. (Ro 12:2) At the last session we reminded each other: unity is not the end, after unity, the journey continues, just like after being married, we still learn to adjust, after having children there is added responsibility, we discuss who gets up at night to change the diapers and feed the baby. So we made covenant together: For the next 40 days we will circumcise our heart. It is not about fasting, but something more, we consecrate our eyes, mind, ears, mouth, hands, feet, money, relationships… We will not do anything which is not pleasing to the Lord, If we fall, we will repent, rise up again and not stay in the mud.
The gathering ended with beautiful songs and dance. During worship the international family came forward, raised their hands and blessed the Chinese. This Chinese song sound a little sad, and the dance steps are solemn: “Blessings Chinese, standing in the storm, blossoms in tribulations. Blessings Chinese, clouds of blessing to the nations, glory spread to the world. Blessings Chinese with all our prayers. May peace and abundance be with you… ” We sang over and over, wept again and again, thankfulness overflows my heat. Then another song began: “Our great God and Father, it’s you who lifted us up from the dust. We will talk more about your love, sing more about your righteousness. In this broad earth who will not praise you…!” Again we sang and let tears run. The hearts of the international family were melted. Lord, I thank You, I worship You, I love You! You brought us here, more than ten thousand people, we didn’t do much, only sang and cried, but that was enough, just like the disciples in the upper room. May the heart we offer up, bring You joy, do what we can not accomplish by ourselves. Reign in us. We are one body under one head, one flock under one Shepherd, snd one family under one Father. We are carriers of Your presence, through us may Your presence come to our home, work, school, church, street, market, car, airplane, wherever we go. We are the ambassadors of Your Kingdom declaring with authority, “The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice!” (Ps 97:1)
