Unity in Prayer


In Seoul, Korea, Christians meet for prayer every morning of the year. Many churches open for communal prayer at 4 A.M. This practice began during the Korean war, when people recognized their need for the comfort of community. They wanted to be with their siblings in Christ before going to work in dangerous fields and factories.

Praying together has great merit. Those of us who aren’t in the habit of praying much at all don’t even realize what we’re missing out on when it comes to praying communally. Prayer produces a spiritual awareness in us that gives us strength to withstand trials and primes us for discerning wisdom. After describing the famous “armor of God” which empowers us to battle against the powers of darkness, Ephesians 6:18 says, “pray in the Spirit on all occasions…be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”

At Guidelines, we believe so deeply in the power of prayer that our staff meets every morning to lift up in prayer our supporters and has done so for over 60 years.

So today, no matter where you live, we invite you to join others in communal prayer, if possible. If you can’t attend a community prayer in person, commit to 10 minutes of prayer with two friends over the phone, a messaging app, or text. Let us pray for our government officials, our cities where we live, and our brothers and sisters in Christ worldwide.

How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
– Psalm 133:1
