Pray to be enriched by all the gifts of the Spirit, including powerful preaching and prophetic revelation.
5That you were enriched in everything by Him in all utterance [anointed preaching/singing] and all knowledge [prophetic revelation], 6even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you [by miracles], 7so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of…Jesus Christ, 8who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Cor. 1:5-8)

(2 Thes. 1:11-12)
That the Word will increase its influence (effectiveness) in the city as God releases His power on it.

(2 Thes. 3:1-5)
For impartation of boldness (singing and speaking the Word) by releasing healing, signs, and wonders.
29Lord… grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus. 31And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness. (Acts 4:29-31)
Release of God’s promise to be endued with power for all who tarry (labor in prayer) for breakthrough.

For the Lord to release His zeal for His people and for His manifest Presence to shake all that resists Him.
15Look down… and see from Your habitation, holy and glorious. Where are [the manifestations of] Your zeal and Your strength, the yearning of Your heart and Your mercies toward me? 16…You, O Lord, are our Father, Our redeemer from Everlasting is Your name. 64:1Oh, that you would rend the heavens! That You would come down [manifest Your power]! That the mountains (obstacles) might shake at Your presence—2as fire burns brushwood, as fire causes water to boil—to make Your name known to Your adversaries [sin, sickness, Satan], that the nations may tremble at Your presence! 3When You did awesome things for which we did not look (expect)… 4Since the beginning of the world men have no heard…nor has the eye seen any God besides You, who acts for the one who waits for Him. 5You meet him who rejoices and does righteousness, who remembers you in Your ways. (Isa. 63:15-16; 64:1-7)
For the release of God’s promise to pour out His Spirit and release dreams, visions, and prophecy.
17In the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. 18On My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy. 19I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath: blood, fire and vapor of smoke. 20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, BEFORE the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. 21Whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved. (Acts 2:17-21)
Prayer for Israel to be saved and the release of the prophetic anointing, miracles, and righteousness.
1My heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. (Rom. 10:1)
26All Israel will be saved… The Deliverer [Jesus] will come out of Zion. He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; 27For this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins. (Rom. 11:26-27)
1For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace [be silent; release a prophetic spirit], and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest [or I will not be inactive: release power], UNTIL her righteousness [in all heart issues] goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns [ministry to others].
