Pray that through their experience of repentance and confession under the Lord’s shining light the saints would be revived and vitalized in order to live a normal, overcoming church life (Eph. 5:14; 1 John 1:5, 7, 9; 1 Thes. 5:16-18; Rom. 12:1, 11).

Eph. 5:14—Therefore He says, Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.

1 John 1:5, 7, 9—And this is the message which we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all…But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from every sin…If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

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.

Rom. 12:1, 11—I exhort you therefore, brothers, through the compassions of God to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service…Do not be slothful in zeal, but be burning in spirit, serving the Lord.
