And I tell you this – whatever you bind on earth is bound in heaven… if two of you agree down here on earth concerning anything you ask for, my father n heaven will do it for you. Matthew 18:18-19.
There are times when we are alone in the Lions’ den, and God delivers us. There are other times we are together in the fiery furnace and our collective faith brings us through. In most cases it’s the “prayer of agreement” that releases the greatest degree of power and wins the biggest victory.
After telling us to put on the whole armour of God, Paul advises us to “pray always…” (Eph. 6:18) Why? Because prayer is the real battle ground. That’s where you take back what the enemy has stolen from you. That’s where you bring to pass on earth what God’s already decided in heaven. It was when Joshua prayed that he received both the strength and the strategy to conquer Jericho (Job 5:13-14)
The call of God to us today is a call of unity. As we join together in prayer the power of God to save, heal, and deliver is released and multiplied – millions of times over! I speak from experience. Way back in Owerri the “Favoured Sisters” received untold blessings because of our unity in prayers. In Anambra State Jericho walls tumbled down as the “Testimony Sister” prayed together every Thursday. Now back in Imo State, we the PPPs (Praise & Prayer Partners) are bringing forth God’s delayed blessings to our lives, families and ministries through our prayer partnership.
Listen! Deut. 32:30 says – “One can chase a thousand and two can put ten thousand to flight.” Ask the Inter Church Women’s Fellowship and hear the number of testimonies that are shared every third Tuesday of the month. Their power was always increased because of their ability to work together!
“By prayer let us wrestle and He will perform. With Christ in the vessel we smile @ the storm.”
