Pray that by the Lord’s grace the saints would pursue, desire, seek, and learn to prophesy, which is the excelling gift for the building up of the church (1 Cor. 14:1, 12, 31, 39a).
1 Cor. 14:1—Pursue love, and desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.
1 Cor. 14:12—So also you, since you are zealous of spirits, seek that you may excel for the building up of the church.
1 Cor. 14:31—For you can all prophesy one by one that all may learn and all may be encouraged.
1 Cor. 14:39a—So then, my brothers, desire earnestly the prophesying.
