Pray that the saints in all the churches would be strengthened to pray the prayer of the age, the prayer of the church as the Body of Christ, exercising the authority of Christ as the ascended Lord, and Head of the Body, for the fulfilling of God’s economy (Isa. 45:11; 62:6-7; Ezek. 36:37; Matt. 18:18-19).

Isa. 45:11—Thus says Jehovah, / The Holy One of Israel and the One who formed him, / Ask Me about the things to come concerning My sons, / And concerning the work of My hands, command Me.

Isa. 62:6-7—Upon your walls, O Jerusalem, / I have appointed watchmen; / All day and all night / They will never keep silent. / You who remind Jehovah, / Do not be dumb; / And do not give Him quiet / Until He establishes / And until He makes Jerusalem / A praise in the earth.

Ezek. 36:37—Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Moreover for this I will be inquired of by the house of Israel to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a flock.

Matt. 18:18-19—Truly I say to you, Whatever you bind on the earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on the earth shall have been loosed in heaven. Again, truly I say to you that if two of you are in harmony on earth concerning any matter for which they ask, it will be done for them from My Father who is in the heavens.
