Pray that the saints would respond to Christ’s activities in His heavenly ministry by seeking the things which are above, having one life and one living with Christ so that their hearts may be with Him in heaven, where He is interceding for the churches, supplying the saints, and administrating God’s government (Col. 3:1-4; Heb. 7:25; 8:2; Rev. 5:6).        

Col. 3:1-4—If therefore you were raised together with Christ, seek the things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things which are above, not on the things which are on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ our life is manifested, then you also will be manifested with Him in glory.

Heb. 7:25—Hence also He is able to save to the uttermost those who come forward to God through Him, since He lives always to intercede for them.

Heb. 8:2—A Minister of the holy places, even of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, not man.

Rev. 5:6—And I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures and in the midst of the elders a Lamb standing as having just been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
