Pray that the saints would aspire to have the joy and crown of those whom they have saved as a reward for their gospel preaching and that they would be received by the saved ones into the eternal tabernacles (Phil. 4:1a and 11; 1 Thes. 2:19-20 and 201; Luke 16:9).

Phil. 4:1a—So then, my brothers, beloved and longed for, my joy and crown.  

1 Thes. 2:19-20—For what is our hope or joy or crown of boasting before our Lord Jesus at His coming? Are not even you? For you are our glory and joy.

Luke 16:9—And I say to you, Make friends for yourselves by means of the mammon of unrighteousness, so that when it fails, they may receive you into the eternal tabernacles.
