Important Fellowship from the North American Co-workers Regarding the Current COVID-19 Pandemic (dated March 21, 2020) English Chinese Spanish Korean
Prayer for the World Situation We would like to sound the call to all the saints in Northern California to sanctify the next two weeks—from Tuesday, March 24, through Monday, April 6, 2020—as a special time of prayer in response to the unprecedented changes in the world situation due to the coronavirus pandemic. This past Lord's Day (March 22), Brother Minoru gave an hour-long fellowship by video conference to a group of 250+ brothers in Northern California, in which he shared a very heavy burden for all the churches—not only in Northern California but throughout the Lord's recovery—to rise up to pray. As he stressed to the brothers, the primary function of the church is to pray for God's will in the heavens to be carried out on the earth; furthermore, all the blessings that we have received as believers are for the church to fulfill her function of prayer. In light of the seriousness of the current situation, our brother and all of us are strongly burdened that the church should fulfill her prayer ministry to match Christ's intercession in His heavenly ministry, so that God's will can be done on earth at this critical time. As such, we strongly encourage the saints to do the following: Sign Up—Sign up at http://tiny.cc/norcal-prayer-signup to schedule your daily and weekly prayer times for the next two weeks:
Personal Prayer—Schedule a fixed time to pray personally to the Lord for 15 minutes or more each day
Prayer with Companions—Schedule weekly times to pray with companions for 15 minutes or more each time Prayer Items—Use the list of prayer items given by Brother Minoru: Our brother listed seven categories of prayer items that we can pray for, one for each day of the week, as a practical help to our prayer exercise in these two weeks The list of prayer items (by language) can be accessed using the following links:

20200324 NorCal Prayer (Korean) (will be uploaded to http://norcalchurches.org/norcal-prayer/) For further updates, please go to the http://norcalchurches.org/norcal-prayer/ website. Please do your best to fellowship the burden for this special time of prayer with the saints that you know, especially those who may not be on this NorCal email list. May the Lord richly elevate the church's prayer ministry and function at this critical time for His universal administration. Amen.
