The Power of One

Last Sunday I witnessed a powerful move of God. While leading worship, one of the singers got violently ill and could barely stand because sharp pains were piercing her stomach. A deacon whipped out his cell phone to call for an ambulance, but the preacher stopped the service and asked, “Before you call 911, may I call Jesus?” The woman said yes, he prayed, the Lord healed, and spiritual pandemonium broke out in the sanctuary.

Prayer changes things. When we come together in unity worshiping the Father, He comes into our presence and brings with Him all that we need. Our faith was so real in that building, the woman’s healing created a traffic jam at the altar. Some people received the baptism in the Holy Spirit while others simply worshiped God and thanked Him for His presence.

Despite what we see in the natural realm-a failing economy, broken marriages, war, cancer and more-God will intervene in the affairs of His people with a holy visitation when we come together and pray.

The Bible says, “And when they had entered [the city], they mounted [the stairs] to the upper room where they were [indefinitely] staying-Peter and John and James and Andrew; Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew; James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas [son] of James. All of these with their minds in full agreement devoted themselves steadfastly to prayer, [waiting together] with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers” (Acts 1:13-14, The Amplified Bible).

All types of people were in the upper room. A liar, a thief, a woman who had once been possessed with seven demons, the mother of our Lord and others. But they were all partakers of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit as demonstrated in Acts 2:4.

God is no respecter of persons. If He responded to prayer 2,000 years ago, He will show up and move by His Spirit when we come together in one place, with one heart and no agenda, wholeheartedly seeking Him.

But let’s not wait. Let’s come together, corporately right here on Spiritledwoman.com. As a result of the Internet, we can reach heaven on behalf of millions of unbelievers and Christians alike. Logon to the site every day this week, post your prayer and watch God move by His Spirit.
