Yesterday, my husband and I were involved in a National Day of Prayer event in Naples, Florida with many others from Life Christian Church. About a dozen pastors led in prayer and we joined our faith together. It was a powerful time as many churches publicly worshiped God and proclaimed our trust in Him. At the close of the event, there was a potent prayer for unity among the body of believers. I was so touched as a passage of scripture came alive.
In Psalm 133, it says, “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity…for there the LORD commanded the blessing – life forevermore”. We know that one can put 1,000 to flight and two can put 10,000 to flight. There is power in unity.
If we continue in prayer daily, unity with other believers will be evident. If you don’t pray daily, I encourage you to ask the Lord to give you the desire and a passion to pray. He will give it to you.
Prayer cannot only be a one-time event; it has to be daily fellowship with God. There we obtain the strength to overcome self and a critical eye of others. The more we pray, the more we will see others as Jesus sees them. Seek unity at any cost.
The result of unity is health, peace of mind, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
