Praying together

We are reading John 17 this week.  We are thinking about the Lord’s Prayer, the second one,  “Father, make them one”.  If we are one, and if our oneness with each other rises from our oneness with Him, then isn’t UNITED PRAYER a logical and powerful obligation of every Christian?  One moment, expressing both realities,  surrendered to God and connected to each other. “Where two or three are gathered in my name, I will be there” says the Lord, but most churches, most christians have little commitment to this Jesus rule of Life.  In the Lord’s Prayer (thank you for praying with me this year, I am grateful for your support) we pray with others mentally, “OUR Father, OUR sins”, then isn’t the NEXT STEP to pray with others physically? Praying together is part of God’s larger design. . .that we would be one. Friend, with whom do you pray?
