Pray that the saints would practice to watch in their prayer life by giving thanks, so that their prayer life may be preserved and the adversary would not be able to carry them off from their prayer life (Col. 4:2; 3:17; Eph. 5:20; 1 Thes. 5:16-18).
Col. 4:2—Persevere in prayer, watching in it with thanksgiving.
Col. 3:17—And whatever you do in word or in deed, do all things in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
Eph. 5:20—Giving thanks at all times for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to our God and Father.
1 Thes 5:16-18—Always rejoice, unceasingly pray, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
