Acts 2:42 KJV
And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
Those who had been converted, received the Holy Ghost, on the day of Pentecost stayed together. They did everything together. They were on one accord, united in doctrine and relationship. Unity is very powerful in all areas of life. Just think about it for a moment…when you have a group of individuals unified with a purpose there is little that can stop them. For examples look at the African Americans, Ghandi, and the Egyptian Summer. Even God said when the people where united speaking with one tongue and they decided to build a tower to reach heaven in order to make a name for themselves. (Gen 11:1-9 key v6) So how powerful can a group of people have when they are united with the sole purpose of doing Gods’ will?
However, some may ask, how do we know Gods’ will? That’s easy, through prayer and reading the Bible. Prayer should be a priority in all Christian’s lives. Prayer is like attending a staff meeting at the start of each day. Prayer allows all who will to communicate directly unto the Father without a mediator. So you will be able to tell God exactly what is on your heart and He will communicate back to all who will listen.
Well, I guess I could say that it is easy to a point. Meaning that it’s easy to start off praying and then slowly your mind may begin to wonder. Then I may find myself thinking about what I have to do for the day. I find it hard to stay focused at times or I pray a cookie cutter type prayer then leave. Is that right? No, prayer is a lifestyle and it must be practiced continuously in order for it to be established. Sadly, I must admit that I have gotten off of the wagon. BUT I will regain my footing and get back up. So my prayer is that I have the courage to face all adversity and self to begin fresh in reestablishing my lifestyle of prayer. Unified in doctrine, relationship, and prayer with the Father!
Have a blessed day,
