For what are we told to pray at this time?


"Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain; so the Lord shall make bright clouds, and give them
showers of rain, to everyone grass in the field." Zech. 10: 1.
NOTE - Before the apostles received the baptism of the Spirit in the early rain on the day of
Pentecost, they all "continued with one accord in prayer and supplication." Acts 1:14. During this time they
confessed their faults, put away their differences, ceased their selfish ambitions and contentions for place
and power, so that when the time for the outpouring came, "they were all with one accord in one place,"
ready for its reception. To be prepared for the final outpouring of the Spirit, all sin and selfish ambition
must again be put away, and a like work of grace wrought upon the hearts of God's people.
