Pray that the saints would not care for mushrooming development but for the slow process of life that they may bear fruit in due time, asking the Lord to bear fruit through them once a year (John 15:7-8 and 72, 16 and 165; Hymns, #910, stanza 3).

John 15:7-8—If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. In this is My Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and so you will become My disciples.

John 15:16—You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and I set you that you should go forth and bear fruit and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name, He may give you.
