Pray for the saints to be enlightened by the Lord to see that they are all New Testament priests of the gospel in a corporate priesthood, and for them to be energized by Him to carry out their daily duty of offering up saved sinners as the spiritual sacrifices that God desires (Rev. 1:5b-6a; Rom. 15:16; 1 Pet. 2:5).
Rev. 1:5b-6a—To Him who loves us and has released us from our sins by His blood and made us a kingdom, priests to His God and Father.
Rom. 15:16—That I might be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles, a laboring priest of the gospel of God, in order that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, having been sanctified in the Holy Spirit.
1 Pet. 2:5—You yourselves also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house into a holy priesthood to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
