I truly believe that there is power in prayer.
And I believe that prayer is multiplied when Christians come together to pray.
The book of Matthew records Jesus saying, “If two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” (18:19-20)
I believe that. And while I know that we are all free to approach the throne of God, that He listens to all of His children, I also know that there is something special about praying together. However, I also know that when praying for the same thing, it’s important to pray in unity.
When I was deep in the heart of my chronic migraines earlier this year, I had countless brothers and sisters in Christ praying for me. But they were all praying for my healing when what I really wanted, what I really needed, were prayers for strength to weather the storm.
I have never been big on praying for healing. I know God can do it. He’s God. But I also know that He can use anything for His glory.
