Pray that the saints, on the foundation of their intimate and thorough fellowship, would be blended into one accord by much and thorough prayer with the release of their spirit (1 Cor. 12:24-27, Lev. 2:1-2, 4; Acts 1:14; Eph. 6:18).
1 Cor. 12:24-27—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.
Lev. 2:1-2, 4—And when anyone presents an offering of a meal offering to Jehovah, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil on it and put frankincense on it. Then he shall bring it to Aaron’s sons the priests, and he shall take from it his handful of its fine flour and of its oil with all its frankincense. And the priest shall burn it as its memorial portion on the altar, an offering by fire, a satisfying fragrance to Jehovah…And when you present an offering of a meal offering baked in the oven, it shall be of fine flour, unleavened cakes mingled with oil or unleavened wafers anointed with oil.
Acts 1:14—These all continued steadfastly with one accord in prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.
Eph. 6:18—By means of all prayer and petition, praying at every time in spirit and watching unto this in all perseverance and petition concerning all the saints.
