Pray that the saints would be perfected to speak with the three constituting elements of prophesying, the second of which is the instant inspiration of the Holy Spirit—the divine element of inspiration (1 Cor. 14:32, 37; 1 John 1:7; Rom. 8:4; Gal. 5:16a, 25; 2 Tim. 4:22a).
1 Cor. 14:32—And the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets.
1 Cor. 14:37—If anyone thinks he is a prophet or spiritual, let him fully know the things which I write to you, that they are the commandment of the Lord.
1 John 1:7—But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from every sin.
Rom. 8:4—That the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the spirit.
Gal. 5:16a, 25—But I say, Walk by the Spirit…If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.
2 Tim. 4:22a—The Lord be with your spirit.
