Pray that the saints would remember the Lord and satisfy Him by bringing in the kingdom, having themselves and everything related to them brought into a proper relationship with God’s administration, which is the emphasis in the Lord’s supper—the vertical aspect (1 Cor. 11:24-25; Matt. 26:29; Hymns, #221, ss. 1-2 and chorus).
1 Cor. 11:24-25—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.
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.
