Power in United Prayer

"Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them." —Matthew 18:19–20

It is that time of year again when the Harvest Crusade is starting up and so I had to share this with you.  So many people have come to know Jesus at these crusades and go on to live the wonderful Christian life.  I do believe in the power of prayer and I think all of us should go to the prayer and sign up to pray together as a group so that more souls will come to Jesus in these last days.

Did you know there is power in united prayer? It is good to pray with other people. Jesus said, "If two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven" (Matthew 18:19). This doesn't mean that if people get together and pray for something ridiculous, they are going to get it. Rather, it is two people being led by the Spirit, with the same God-given burden, praying for something. There is power as we pray together.

That is why, when a Harvest Crusade is approaching, we encourage people to begin thinking of someone they could be praying for by name. At we have a Prayer Cloud where people can enter the names of those whom they want to see come to Christ. When they enter the names of people they are praying for, others will pray for those people as well. We do this because we recognize there is power in united prayer. So we pray together for things.

One of the things we should be praying for is that God would send revival to our nation. Will a revival come to the United States? No one can say with certainty. I hope it will. God gives the prescription for the healing of a nation in 2 Chronicles 7:14, where He says, "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." That is what we want: for God to heal our land and turn our nation back toward Him.

Prevailing prayer, prayer that matters, and prayer that gets results is prayer that is lifted up together. I think it would be beautiful for all of us to agree in prayer for a revival to hit America like it never has before.  We can do this one person at a time.  Maranatha!!!
