Pray that the saints would appreciate the nearness of the Lord and would call on the name of the Lord to enjoy His riches in any place and at any time (Deut. 4:7; Psa. 145:18; Rom. 10:8-9, 12-13 and notes 81, 91, and 121; Hymns, #1083 ss. 1, 3 and chorus).

Deut. 4:7—For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as Jehovah our God is whenever we call upon Him?

Psa. 145:18—Jehovah is near to all who call upon Him, / To all who call upon Him in truth.

Rom 10:8-9, 12-13—But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the word of the faith which we proclaim, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved…For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord is Lord of all and rich to all who call upon Him; for “whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
