Pray that the saints would begin to practice the God-ordained way one step at a time, diving into one step, finding out and learning its secrets, and not caring for problems, hardships, and frustrations (1 Cor. 4:15; 1 Thes. 2:7-8; Eph. 4:12; 1 Cor. 14:4b).
1 Cor. 4:15—For though you have ten thousand guides in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
1 Thes. 2:7-8—But we were gentle in your midst, as a nursing mother would cherish her own children. Yearning in this way over you, we were well pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God but also our own souls, because you became beloved to us.
Eph. 4:12—For the perfecting of the saints unto the work of the ministry, unto the building up of the Body of Christ.
1 Cor. 14:4b—He who prophesies builds up the church.
