Pray that the saints would daily eat of the Word of God as the embodiment of Christ and would realize that this is a spiritual life necessity (Job 23:12b; Psa. 119:103; Jer. 15:16 and note 161; Matt. 4:4).

Job 23:12b—I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my apportioned food.

Psa. 119:103—How sweet are Your words to my taste! / Sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Jer. 15:16—Your words were found and I ate them, / And Your word became to me / The gladness and joy of my heart, / For I am called by Your name, / O Jehovah, God of hosts.

Matt. 4:4—But He answered and said, It is written, “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out through the mouth of God.”
