What is the meaning of the following lines in the 1952 Christmas message?

"It is necessary to persevere with prayer. It is necessary to persevere with the division of the bread and the wine. All prayer should end with the bread and the wine. "

Thank you.

And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this [Eucharist], and divide it among yourselves: For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, but till the kingdom of God has come.
And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, this is my body [that holds the truth, the core of my doctrine] which is given for you: this [parting of bread] do in remembrance of me.
Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood [the fiery fluid vehicle of the Logos], which is shed [in the Eucharist] for you.
But, behold, the hand of him that betrays me [my body and my blood] is with me on the table.
And truly the Son of man goes, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!
And they began to inquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this [nonsensical] thing [that is, to be against the Eucharist]. – Luke 22: 17-23

Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book,
and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5
