Our love for one another and for our God will express itself in prayer together, and, as we pray together, we will inevitably love each other better.
With so many books on prayer, this is one that is directed towards community. Even though individual prayers are something we must practice, praying together in our homes, communities and churches may seem unimportant and unsignificant. This text shares with the reader how important it is and how it transforms your life and those around you.
The most significant of praying together is how it brings unity to Christians. It affirms our unity in Christ and keeps the focus on where it should be. In doing so, it strengthens the church and our faith.
So how does your church handle prayer together? It can be difficult for leadership to cast the vision of praying together, however, this read is also a guide on how it can done and how leadership can express the importance of praying together is to the vitality of the body. It is important to have a time prayer together on a Sunday service that is intentional in leading the body to the gospel but also a time of praying together outside of a Sunday service as well. I liked how the author expressed how prayer can be a time of “the team” coming together to build each other up. Do we look at prayer that way? It really did open my eyes to the value of praying together. Not just for the sake of praying together but for building each other up to the Gospel.
