Prayer for the saints to see the importance of the Lord’s table in carrying out God’s move so that they will earnestly keep it

Pray that from the type of the Passover the saints would see the importance of the Lord’s table in carrying out God’s move and would be encouraged to earnestly keep this weekly feast (1 Cor. 11:23-26; cf. Num. 9:1-5). 

1 Cor. 11:23-26—For I received from the Lord that which also I delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread, and having given thanks, He broke it and said, This is My body, which is given for you; this do unto the remembrance of Me. Similarly also the cup after they had dined, saying, This cup is the new covenant established in My blood; this do, as often as you drink it, unto the remembrance of Me. For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you declare the Lord’s death until He comes.

Num. 9:1-5—Now Jehovah had spoken to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai in the first month of the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying, Let the children of Israel keep the passover at its appointed time. On the fourteenth day of this month at twilight, you shall keep it at its appointed time; according to all its statutes and according to all its ordinances you shall keep it. Thus Moses told the children of Israel to keep the passover. And they kept the passover in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, at twilight, in the wilderness of Sinai; according to all that Jehovah commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did.
