We Please God More When We Pray Together
“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. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:19-20
God is pleased when His children pray, but God is more pleased when His children pray in fellowship. There’s nothing that will bind us together as a church more than praying together. If you’ve ever had a prayer partner, you know how your hearts are linked together.
There are times when the church prays and God seems to come down, and it’s glorious! It’s what we call “the fellowship of prayer.” This prayer is the prayer we see happening in Acts 12 when the church came together to pray for Peter.
Jesus had an “inner circle”—Peter, James, and John. You need one, too. Every believer needs that special friend or group of friends you can call on at a moment’s notice—“in season, out of season”—to encourage and uplift you in prayer.
You need to be that go-to person for a fellow believer. If you have this fellowship in prayer, praise God. If not, ask Him to bring that prayer partner/partners into your life. Join together with other believers to pray this week.
