Pray that the saints, by the Lord’s grace, would practice the God-ordained way steadfastly and with regularity (John 15:1-2, 4-5; 2 Tim. 4:2).
John 15:1-2, 4-5—I am the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes it away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it that it may bear more fruit…Abide in Me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing.
2 Tim. 4:2—Proclaim the word; be ready in season and out of season; convict, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and teaching.
