Strength in numbers

The prayer training day yesterday was quite inspiring – faith-building, even. Even though I already knew and had experienced much of what was taught, it was great to be reminded.

The day was full: but, thinking about it now, one of the challenges I am left with is that we were recommended to pray with a partner. Mark 12:13 tells us that the disciples “preached with joyful urgency that life can be radically different; right and left they sent the demons packing; they brought wellness to the sick, anointing their bodies, healing their spirits”, Luke adding that Jesus sent them out two by two.

I was reminded that “By yourself you're unprotected. With a friend you can face the worst. Can you round up a third? A three-stranded rope isn't easily snapped (Ecclesiastes 4:12) Two of us – and Jesus – an unbeatable prayer trio!
