We come together and seeks the Lord corporately and lift up the needs of the church and individuals. It is very powerful to come together as Jesus’ Body and bear our burdens together, thus fulfilling the Law of Christ.
Galatians 6:2 Bear one another's burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.
Colossians 4:2 Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving.
Acts 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.
We can’t emphasize the importance of prayer enough. All of us can ask ourselves the following questions regularly:
Do I consistently pray? Am I obeying Colossians 4:2? Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
Do I first try to “fix things” myself, or do I first go to the Lord in prayer?
Am I generally a self-dependent person?
Are there people in my life who need prayer? Do I pray for them?
In a difficult situation, do you say, "All we can do is pray," as if that's a "last resort"?
Once we cultivate a consistent prayer life, we will never be the same. Meeting corporately – just like the early church did – is a very important part of that.
