Pray that the saints would learn to pray not just the prayers of individual believers but the prayer of the church as the Body of Christ with the full realization of what the Lord has obtained—His lordship and headship—touching the authority of Christ to claim what He has obtained and apply it to the situation (Eph. 1:22; Acts 12:5, 12).
Eph. 1:22—And He subjected all things under His feet and gave Him to be Head over all things to the church.
Acts 12:5, 12—So then Peter was kept in the prison; but prayer was being made fervently by the church to God concerning him…And when he became aware of this, [Peter] went to the house of Mary, the mother of John, who was surnamed Mark, where there was a considerable number assembled together and praying.
