There is power in unity. When that power is manifested in supplication and intercession that power is magnified.
The church has had a ladies prayer group praying weekly for the past two years. We have seen prayer answered, lived spared and loved ones saved. We have seen miracles and been physically touched by His presence. If testimony was called the group could present any number of praises to the Lord.
Recently it was laid on hearts to unite ladies from the church who didn’t attend our regular meetings. It was the boldness of the Holy Ghost that called this meeting. He was directions us to unite and continue together in His name.
As we met and shared praises, needs and testimonies, Jesus came to sit among us. Matthew 18:20 says “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” When Jesus attends a prayer meeting where all are in agreement, He is able to break our will, cast off chains and heal even the deepest chasm of separation.
This united meeting is His will for the church. When those in agreement come boldly before the throne seeking His face and divine direction, He is able to move in this world. It is in unity and agreement His power is made visible to those who are being called.
Acts 1:8 says that “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you . . . “ Imagine harnessing that promised power and linking it with the Holy Ghost power in others. This united, focused power will be as in Matthew 5:14 “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.”
That city is the beacon for those searching and fallen. It is not just a little light squelched by a bushel basket but an ever present help. A power-filled light that will not go out as long as the circuit of unity is unbroken.
