Pray that the saints would see from the Lord’s supper how the church is a bridge connecting the Lord’s death and His second coming, such that the church continues the Lord’s death and brings in His coming back with the goal of setting up His kingdom (1 Cor. 11:26; Matt. 26:29; Dan. 7:13-14).
1 Cor. 11:26—For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you declare the Lord’s death until He comes.
Matt. 26:29—But I say to you, I shall by no means drink of this product of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in the kingdom of My Father.
Dan. 7:13-14—I watched in the night visions, / And there with the clouds of heaven / One like a Son of Man was coming; / And He came to the Ancient of Days, / And they brought Him near before Him. / And to Him was given dominion, glory, and a kingdom, / That all the peoples, nations, and languages might serve Him. / His dominion is an eternal dominion, which will not pass away; / And His kingdom is one that will not be destroyed.
