Unity in Prayer

Since our Lord prayed for the unity of His people, we need to cultivate cooperation (John 17:20,21). “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven” (Matt 18:19). When we follow this Prayer Points guide, we are expressing unity in praying God’s heart for as lost world.

Matthew 18:19 gives special assurance in prayer when we “agree”. The Greek word translated “agree” is “sumphoneo” which also provides a word in English for a musical symphony (orchestra). As we follow this prayer guide we are like many instruments harmonizing under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them” (Matt 18:20).
