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.
