Prayer of Agreement

Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.
(Matthew 18:19)

 A Prayer for Unity and Harmony

Father, You said, Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do; and now nothing they have imagined they can do will be impossible to them (Gen.11:6 AMP). We pray by the name of our Lord Jesus, that all of us in Your Body be in perfect harmony, and full agreement in what we say, and that there be no dissensions or factions or divisions among us. We pray that as members of the Body of Christ we will live together with complete lowliness of mind and meekness, with patience, bearing with one another and making allowances because we love one another. In the name of Jesus, we are eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness produced by the Spirit in the binding power of peace. We commit, in the name of Jesus, to be of one and the same mind, united in spirit, sympathizing with one another, loving each other as brethren, compassionate and courteous, tenderhearted and humble-minded. We will never return evil for evil or insult for insult. Thank You that Jesus has given to us the glory and honor that You gave Him, that we may be one, even as You and Jesus are one: Jesus in us and You in Jesus, in order that we may become one and perfectly united, that the world may know and recognize that You sent Jesus and that You have loved them even as You have loved Jesus. Father, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Amen, and so be it.
Question of the Week How should Christians view wealth?
The Christian view of wealth should be derived from the Scriptures. There are many times that God gave riches to His people. Solomon was promised riches and became the richest of all the kings of the earth (1 Kin.3:11-13); David said in 1 Chronicles 29:12: “Wealth and honor come from you.” Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, King Jehoshaphat, and many others were blessed by God with wealth. That does not necessarily mean that we will all be monetarily wealthy. The Church was never given a land or the promise of riches. But there are more amazing riches. Ephesians 1:3 tells us, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” The riches that God wants for us: “I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being” (Eph.3:16). God does not condemn anyone for having riches. Riches come to people from many sources, but He gives grave warnings to those who seek after them more than they seek after God and trust in them more than in God. His greatest desire is for us to set our hearts on things above and not on things on this earth. The secret is knowing Christ as Savior and allowing the Holy Spirit to conform our minds and heart to His (Rom.12:1-2).
