Satan always hates Christian fellowship; it is his policy to keep Christians apart. Anything which can divide saints from one another he delights in. He attaches far more importance to godly intercourse than we do. Since union is strength, he does his best to promote separation.Charles Spurgeon
24 So when they heard that, they raised their voice to God with one accord and said: “Lord, You are God, who made heaven and earth and the sea, and all that is in them, … 29 Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.Acts 4:24, 29-31 NKJV
We have been learning about the importance of being in agreement, praying together and for one another in harmony: symphonic prayer. Today, we are taking this one step higher: The power of praying together in one accord. Acts Chapter 4 shows us a great example of this phenomenon, and the result was miraculous. In our fractured age this is not an easy thing, but it is well worth the effort to get there.
