Pray that the saints would see that their proclaiming of the gospel of God is their sowing of the seed of Christ into people to bring in the kingdom of God (Mark 1:14-15; 4:3 and notes 31, 32; 4:26 and note 263).
Mark 1:14-15—And after John was delivered up, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God has drawn near. Repent and believe in the gospel.
Mark 4:3—Listen! Behold, the sower went out to sow.
Mark 4:26—And [Jesus] said, So is the kingdom of God: as if a man cast seed on the earth.
