Pray that the saints would make their vow practical by setting aside definite times each day to persevere in prayer (Dan. 6:10; Psa. 55:17; Acts 10:9 and notes 91 and 92).

Dan. 6:10—Now when Daniel came to know that the writing had been signed, he went to his house (in his upper room he had windows open toward Jerusalem) and three times daily he knelt on his knees and prayed and gave thanks before his God, because he had always done so previously.

Psa. 55:17—Evening and morning and at noontime / I complain and moan, / And He hears my voice.

Acts 10:9—And on the next day as they were journeying and drawing near to the city, Peter went up on the housetop to pray around the sixth hour.
