Pray that the saints would be freshly attracted by Christ’s love, charmed by His name, and captivated by His person in order to have a fresh pursuit of Him (S. S. 1:2-4a; Eph. 3:19a and note 191; Psa. 45:2 and note 21; Isa. 33:17a).

S. S. 1:2-4a—Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth! / For your love is better than wine. / Your anointing oils have a pleasant fragrance; / Your name is like ointment poured forth; / Therefore the virgins love you. / Draw me; we will run after you.

Eph. 3:19a—And to know the knowledge-surpassing love of Christ.

Psa. 45:2—You are fairer than the sons of men; / Grace is poured upon Your lips; / Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Isa. 33:17a—Your eyes will see the King in His beauty.
