Unity in Prayer

Psalm 133:1 "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity."

There is something about praying together that brings a supernatural unity; a special camaraderie. You may not know the person but when you share personal requests and pray together, to our Saviour Jesus Christ, something happens; something changes. You still may not be the best of friends but there is a unity that comes by the Spirit. We have chapel every morning but Friday is prayer chapel. We divided into groups of people we did not know very well and took personal requests. We also prayed for our professor's, the elections in the United States, and the leadership and government in the countries we will be working in. It was a wonderful time of prayer and those in my group, even though I do not know them very well, I feel connected with them. It is so important to pray with one another. I challenge you to pray more with others. Not just in church services or cell groups or prayer meetings. But when you go visit a friend, or meet with someone at a coffee shop. Talk about their needs and don't just
say, "I'll pray for you." Take the time immediately to pray with them and continue to lift them up in your personal time.
