Pray that all the saints would realize that preaching the gospel has a reward and that they would run in order to lay hold of the prize (1 Cor. 9:16-17, 23-24).

1 Cor. 9:16-17, 23-24—For if I preach the gospel, I have no boast, for necessity is laid upon me; for woe to me if I do not preach the gospel. If I do this of my own will, I have a reward; but if not of my own will, I am entrusted with a stewardship…And I do all things for the sake of the gospel that I may become a fellow partaker of it. Do you not know that those who run on a racecourse all run, but one receives the prize? Run in this way, that you may lay hold.
