Matthew 18.19 – “Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”
Grant me, O Father, the capacity to see everything as intensely beautiful.
A group of spiritual leaders set out on a prayer journey during the height of World War II. They traveled the country, taking public transportation (trains) and paid their own way. They spent five days at each location, as they sought to limit war related human suffering on both sides.
For three or four days, this band of spiritual men and women sought to align their lives with the love, the plans and the purposes of God. Only when they had a deep sense of alignment with God did they intercede. Most often, they “broadcasted” God’s love over the battlefield. The way they measured the results of their prayers was by the lack of casualties on both sides of the battle.
It is interesting to note that Glenn Clark, the man whose material I am using for this prayer experiment, was one of the main leaders of the group of praying men and women.
The experience of these spiritual leaders gives new meaning to today’s prayer promise. When God’s people join together in prayer and wait until they have collectively aligned their lives with God’s will, great power is able to be released.
I hope you are encouraged by the story of Glenn Clark and his praying friends during World War II. Would you consider how the readers of this article can best respond to their example? Let’s align our lives with God and see what he will do with us.
