Day 20 The Power of Agreement

All of these with their minds in full agreement devoted themselves steadfastly to prayer.
ACTS 1:14
Whenever believers are united in prayer, there is great power present. Jesus Himself said, “For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I AM in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20).
Throughout the book of Acts, we read that the people of God came together “with one accord” (Acts 2:1, 46; 4:24; 5:12; 15:25 KJV). And it was their united faith, their corporate agreement, and love that made their prayers so effective. They saw God move in mighty ways to confirm the truth of His Word as they gave testimony to their faith.
Living in agreement doesn’t necessarily mean that we feel the exact same way about everything, but it does mean that we are committed to walking in love.

We can respect someone’s opinion even if we don’t share it! Dave and I don’t share the same opinions about many things, but we do live in peace and harmony and it gives us power in prayer.
In Philippians 2:2 we are told by the apostle Paul, “Fill up and complete my joy by living in harmony and being of the same mind and one in purpose.”

Prayer is a wonderful privilege, and one that we should exercise often. But in order to have good results, we should also strive to remove all disharmony and disunity from our lives.

God help me to find good friends that can be of the same heart in prayers and fellowship. May I always encourage the unit of the brethren. Let my life be used for the benefits of others and may I become blessings to others. In Jesus name

Acts 2:42
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

Acts 6:4
and will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.”

Romans 12:12
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, persistent in prayer.
