Pray that the saints would become endeavoring in fruit-bearing, redeeming their time by getting companions, praying for their relatives and acquaintances, writing to them, making appointments, and going to visit them (John 15:16; Luke 10:1-2; 19:5-6, 9-10).

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. 

Luke 10:1-2—Now after these things, the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to come. And He said to them, The harvest is great, but the workers few; therefore, beseech the Lord of the harvest that He would thrust out workers into His harvest.

Luke 19:5-6, 9-10—And as He came to the place, Jesus looked up and said to him, Zaccheus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay in your house. And he hurried and came down, and received Him, rejoicing…And Jesus said to him, Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which is lost.
