Pray that the saints would learn how to practice group meetings that include fellowship, intercession, mutual care, and shepherding as the beginning and base of the group meetings (Gal. 6:2 and note 21; Phil. 2:1-3; 1 Cor. 12:23-27).
Gal. 6:2—Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ completely.
Phil. 2:1-3—If there is therefore any encouragement in Christ, if any consolation of love, if any fellowship of spirit, if any tenderheartedness and compassions, make my joy full, that you think the same thing, having the same love, joined in soul, thinking the one thing, doing nothing by way of selfish ambition nor by way of vainglory, but in lowliness of mind considering one another more excellent than yourselves.
1 Cor. 12:23-27—And those members of the body which we consider to be less honorable, these we clothe with more abundant honor; and our uncomely members come to have more abundant comeliness, but our comely members have no need. But God has blended the body together, giving more abundant honor to the member that lacked, that there would be no division in the body, but that the members would have the same care for one another. And whether one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or one member is glorified, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are the Body of Christ, and members individually.
