And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. Praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be served.
I felt urged by the Holy Spirit to revisit a passage of scripture which depicts the importance and power of prayer meetings by focusing the church gathering together in genuine prayer and being on one accord. The result will be church growth church from new members being added to the church, a spirit-filled church with love, peace and harmony among the congregation. As new members come to Christ they too commit themselves to serving God in kingdom building through powerful witness and holy living while serving others.
This also speaks to the power of prayer and what can and will happen when the church comes together in prayer. Reflect on the church praying for Peter's release and Paul and Silas midnight prayer meeting and the results of each. Who can forget when the church remained steadfast in prayer at the coming of the Holy Spirit and the number of souls that were saved as a result?
I can remember those old fashioned prayer meetings when I was a child in the South and the fellowship that existed among the members and the Holy Spirit being in the midst. There were love, peace, care and harmony as all were one accord and with one goal, which was to commune with God.
Prayer meetings are the coming together of God's children to communicate with Him through prayer.
