Pray that the saints would realize that what glorifies the Lord the most and gives Him the utmost thanks and praises is our calling on the Lord, and that the saints would call on His name in a way that gives Him the praises and thanks (Isa. 12:2-6; Phil. 2:9-11 and notes 101, 111, 112, and 113; Hymns, #77, ss. 1, 4-5).
Isa. 12:2-6—God is now my salvation; / I will trust and not dread; / For Jah Jehovah is my strength and song, / And He has become my salvation. / Therefore you will draw water with rejoicing / From the springs of salvation, / And you will say in that day, / Give thanks to Jehovah; call upon His name! / Make His deeds known among the peoples; / Remind them that His name is exalted. / Sing psalms to Jehovah, for He has done something majestic! / Let it be made known in all the earth! / Cry out and give a ringing shout, O inhabitant of Zion, / For great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.
Phil. 2:9-11—Therefore also God highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should openly confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
