Pray that the saints would learn to exercise their spirit to sense the atmosphere of the meeting, discern its focus, and apply the hymns at the proper time by following the sense in their spirit (S.S. 7:4 and note 41; Phil. 1:9-10; Hymns, #866, ss. 1-2, 9-10).
S.S. 7:4—Your neck is like a tower of ivory; / Your eyes, like the pools in Heshbon / By the gate of Bath-rabbim; / Your nose is like the tower of Lebanon, / Which faces Damascus.
Phil. 1:9-10—And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in full knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve by testing the things which differ and are more excellent, that you may be pure and without offense unto the day of Christ.
