Pray that the saints would be uplifted in their appreciation of calling on the name of the Lord—crying out to Him audibly—and would practice calling as their spiritual breathing (Lam. 3:55-57; Psa. 119:147; 2 Sam. 22:7, Hymns, #73).

Lam. 3:55-57—I called upon Your name, O Jehovah, / From the lowest pit. / You have heard my voice; do not hide / Your ear at my breathing, at my cry. / You drew near in the day that I called upon You; / You said, Do not fear.

Psa. 119:147—I anticipated the dawn and cried out; / I hoped in Your words.

2 Sam. 22:7—In my distress I called upon Jehovah / And called to my God. / And He heard my voice from His temple, / And my cry came to His ears.
