Pray that the saints would be burdened to diligently learn the way and the skills needed to preach the gospel, especially learning how to bring people to have a personal contact with the Lord by their spirit directly (John 3:3-6; 4:10, 14-15, 24).

John 3:3-6—Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus said to Him, How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he? Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

John 4:10, 14-15, 24—Jesus answered and said to her, If you knew the gift of God and who it is who says to you, Give Me a drink, you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water…But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall by no means thirst forever; but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into eternal life. The woman said to Him, Sir, give me this water so that I will not thirst nor come here to draw…God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truthfulness.
