Pray that the saints would be daily nourished and cherished by the Lord in His word through the practice of pray-reading the Word in order to grow as the members of Christ’s Body with the riches of Christ embodied in His living word to become His fullness, His living testimony (Jer. 15:16; 1 Tim. 4:6; Eph. 5:26, 29-30).
Jer. 15:16—Your words were found and I ate them, / And Your word became to me / The gladness and joy of my heart, / For I am called by Your name, / O Jehovah, God of hosts.
1 Tim. 4:6—If you lay these things before the brothers, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, being nourished with the words of the faith and of the good teaching which you have closely followed.
Eph. 5:26, 29-30—That He might sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing of the water in the word…For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, even as Christ also the church, because we are members of His Body.
