The lifting up of our voice to God in one accord is an important element in bringing about a revival. The outpour of God’s Spirit recorded in Acts chapter 2 happened as the disciples were in one place and in one accord, waiting for one experience that would change the lives forever.
Today, if we would see a new wave of God’s revival in the Church and in the world at large, the body of Christ must unite and be in one accord as well. This is why Christ Jesus was so insistent in his prayer to God “That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me” (John 17:21).
Only Unity can experience Revival and Productivity.
The Church is one body (Eph. 4:4), and every part of the body must function together. Where the head turns, in line with scriptures, the body follows. Anything short of this would hamper the church’s potential and ability to reach the world and bring about a revival on the earth.
As believers therefore, we must be indefatigable to hold on to the spirit of peace that ties us, we must be unified in essence and purpose. This is God’s desire for us.
Prayer for the unity of the body of Christ
Today, take time out to pray for unity in the body of Christ.
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
1. Father in the name of Jesus, cause the church to be baptized with the spirit of love and unity that we may be ready for the coming Revival
2. Oh Lord, we bind every spirit of darkness seeking to cause rebellion, disunity, selfishness, conflict and misunderstanding in the body of Christ.
