Pray that the saints would learn to speak Christ to one another with the hymns and to sing hymns and spiritual songs in their daily life in order to build up their spirit and their fine and tender feelings to equip themselves to function in the meetings (Eph. 5:18b-19 and notes 191, 192; Col. 3:16 and notes 165, 167; Hymns, #1141, ss. 1, 3-4).
Eph. 5:18b-19—Be filled in spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and psalming with your heart to the Lord.
Col. 3:16—Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to God.
