Pray that the saints would realize their need for God’s Word, would prayerfully read and study it, and would learn to speak the living word as the power for their gospel preaching (Rom. 1:16; Acts 4:31; 8:4, 35; 19:20; 2 Tim. 2:15; 4:2).
Rom. 1:16—For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes, both to Jew first and to Greek.
Acts 4:31—And when they had so besought, the place in which they were gathered was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness.
Acts 8:4—Those therefore who were scattered went throughout the land announcing the word as the gospel.
Acts 8:35—And Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture he announced Jesus as the gospel to him.
Acts 19:20—Thus, the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.
2 Tim. 2:15—Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, an unashamed workman, cutting straight the word of the truth.
2 Tim. 4:2—Proclaim the word; be ready in season and out of season; convict, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and teaching.
