“I’ve got a garden with flowers so rare
But somehow it’s empty with no one else there
And you have got treasures so precious and fair
But what are they worth with no one to share?”
– From the song “Stay Awhile” by Alex Colvin
Something wonderful happens when two or three people are able to communicate openly and honestly with one another in a spirit of mutual love and respect.
Inspiration flows. The mind is quickened and thoughts are stimulated. Deep feeling is awakened and the heart is enriched. Communicants discover that they are tapping into a common mind and heart.
Jesus said, “If two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Mat 18:19-20)
Private prayer is the foundation of personal faith. Individual study is a fundamental step toward gaining knowledge. But when two or three are gathered together in a spirit of love and humility, God blesses us.
Knowledge blossoms into understanding. Hearts open in the experience of love and oneness. God can lead us into the truth and reveal his heart and healing power to us, in us, and through us. We experience a holy state of communion in spirit, truth and love.
To once again quote Jesus in Mat 18:18-20,Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 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. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
Therefore, let us gather together as friends in groups of two of three to study and discuss, to encourage one another, and to pray for God’s Will to be done.
