PM#0538 Joining Together

Joining Together
Matthew 18:19, Hebrews 3:13

Joining together, in prayer can accomplish much.  Christ taught on that subject in Matthew 18: 19, and in Hebrews 3:13 we have the encouragement to encourage one another daily.

Joining together and praying together go together.  Consider how the great redwood trees are able to grow 350 ft tall.  They do not stand alone.  They grow in groves and their roots are intertwined and sometimes fused together.  That gives them tremendous strength against high winds and floods.

Praying alone is needed, but joining together, encouraging one another, and supporting each other can help us stand firm in the storms of life. 

Consider this prayer.  Father, help me to join with others in prayer, and also encourage them.  In Jesus, Name, Amen.
