Pray that the saints would realize their urgent need for the one accord as the key to effectively preach the gospel by prayer, the Spirit, and the Word (Matt. 18:19; Acts 1:14; 4:24a, 31; Rom. 15:6; Phil. 1:27).

Matt. 18:19—Again, truly I say to you that if two of you are in harmony on earth concerning any matter for which they ask, it will be done for them from My Father who is in the heavens.

Acts 1:14—These all continued steadfastly with one accord in prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.

Acts 4:24a, 31—And when they heard this, they lifted up their voice with one accord to God…And when they had so besought, the place in which they were gathered was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness.

Rom. 15:6—That with one accord you may with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Phil. 1:27—Only, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, that whether coming and seeing you or being absent, I may hear of the things concerning you, that you stand firm in one spirit, with one soul striving together along with the faith of the gospel.
