Pray that the saints would build up the habit of calling on the name of the Lord whenever they open the Bible to read God’s word (Psa. 119:145-149; John 5:39-40; 2 Cor. 3:6b, Hymns, #1142 ss. 1, 3 and chorus).

Psa. 119:145-149—I called with my whole heart; answer me, O Jehovah. / I will keep Your statutes. / I called upon You; save me, / And I will observe Your testimonies. / I anticipated the dawn and cried out; / I hoped in Your words. / My eyes anticipated the night watches, / That I might muse upon Your word. / Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness; / O Jehovah, according to Your ordinances enliven me. 

John 5:39-40—You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is these that testify concerning Me. Yet you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.

2 Cor. 3:6b—For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
