Day 173: Prayer for the saints to rise up to be energizing priests, making the preaching of the gospel part of their daily life

Pray that the saints would rise up to fulfill their daily duty, becoming energizing priests of the gospel in going out with Christ and with His divine authority to visit their relatives, friends, classmates, colleagues, and neighbors with much prayer, making the preaching of the gospel a part of their daily life (Rom. 15:16; Matt. 28:18-19; Eph. 6:18-20).  

Rom. 15:16—That I might be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles, a laboring [energizing] priest of the gospel of God, in order that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, having been sanctified in the Holy Spirit.

Matt. 28:18-19—And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and disciple all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Eph. 6:18-20—By means of all prayer and petition, praying at every time in spirit and watching unto this in all perseverance and petition concerning all the saints, and for me, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known in boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in a chain, that in it I would speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
