Day 209: Prayer for the saints to be burdened to bear fruit, to beget spiritual children

Pray that the saints would become burdened to bear fruit and would rise up to preach the gospel in order to beget spiritual children (1 Cor. 4:15; 1 Tim. 1:2; Titus 1:4; 1 Thes. 2:7, 11; Hymns, #930, stanzas 1, 4).

1 Cor. 4:15—For though you have ten thousand guides in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.

1 Tim. 1:2—To Timothy, genuine child in faith: Grace, mercy, peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

Titus 1:4—To Titus, genuine child according to the common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.

1 Thes. 2:7, 11—But we were gentle in your midst, as a nursing mother would cherish her own children…Just as you know how we were to each one of you, as a father to his own children, exhorting you and consoling you and testifying.
