Day 270: Prayer for the saints to become energizing priests in practicing their New Testament priesthood

Pray that the saints would become energizing priests in practicing their New Testament priesthood by being revived and renewed day by day (Rom. 15:16 and note 161; Lam. 3:22-24 and 241; 2 Cor. 4:16 and 163; 1 Cor. 15:10 and note 101).

Rom. 15:16—That I might be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles, a laboring priest of the gospel of God, in order that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, having been sanctified in the Holy Spirit.

Lam. 3:22-24—It is Jehovah’s lovingkindness that we are not consumed, / For His compassions do not fail; / They are new every morning; / Great is Your faithfulness. / Jehovah is my portion, says my soul; / Therefore I hope in Him.

2 Cor. 4:16—Therefore we do not lose heart; but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.

1 Cor. 15:10—But by the grace of God I am what I am; and His grace unto me did not turn out to be in vain, but, on the contrary, I labored more abundantly than all of them, yet not I but the grace of God which is with me.
