The prayer base of the local church must be increased. Prayer is also the power source of the apostolic. The apostles gave themselves continually to prayer. This is also true concerning apostolic churches. There will be a spirit of grace and supplication (Zechariah 12:10). Apostles must be free from all of the normal administrative duties placed on most church leaders. They must be free to give themselves to prayer and the ministry of the Word. Many pastors work themselves to death with counseling and administrative duties.

God will upgrade our methods, structure, and models to be able to impact our world. This change for many may seem like a quantum jump. This is a sudden and significant change, advance, or increase.
