For those who have read the Bible from cover to cover, simply saying “prayer is power” is an understatement. Most of the marvelous and miracles events in the entire Scriptures are results of God’s power working through the prayer of His servants.
In the early New Testament church, those who followed Christ were heavily persecuted, threatened, brought to prison, and some were even put to death. However, the Christians at that time knew they had a job to do and a calling to fulfil. That is why several times in the Book of Acts, the church is mentioned praying together.
So what’s the difference between praying alone and praying together? Praying with other believers pleases God because you are united in your goals and desires. That is what God wants His church to achieve – one mind, spirit and purpose. And as we can read, God granted the prayer of those who prayed together.
