CityLight Pastor Commentary:
There is tremendous power in unity. When we agree in prayer with a Christian brother or sister and our request lines up with God’s will (1 John 5:14), the Bible tells us we have what we ask. Why? Because when two or more of us are gathered in Jesus’ Name, the Holy Spirit promises He will be in our midst. When we gather in community, the Holy Spirit is present; and when the Holy Spirit is present, the atmosphere changes and prayers get answered. If you don’t have a local church in which you can enjoy community and fellowship, please find one. If you don’t have a Christian brother or sister with whom you can pray, please find one – for your sake and theirs. Bonds like friendship are especially powerful because they guarantee God’s presence. A union like marriage is even more powerful because of the obvious addition of physical intimacy. The enemy knows this; that’s why Satan targets our relationships and makes them as difficult as he possibly can. We must recognize his antics and commit to maintaining unity built on a foundation of unconditional love. The result will be anointed fellowship and powerful prayer that moves mountains and shakes the earth!
“Father, give me good Christian brothers and sisters whom I can call friends! Give me an awesome local church full of people whom I can call family! Help me to always contribute to unity, and never break it down. Thank You for the promise that our prayers will be answered when we are united as Your sons and daughters!”
