Pray that the saints would see that to have the proper and genuine spreading of the gospel, they must have the overflow of the inner life and would realize their need to bear fruit by the overflow of the inner life (John 15:1-5; Hymns, #910, stanzas 1-2).
John 15:1-5—I am the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes it away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing.
