Mark, the evangelist, leaves us the following account:
Now John answered Him, saying, “Teacher, we saw someone who does not follow us casting out demons in Your name, and we forbade him because he does not follow us.” But Jesus said, “Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in My name can soon afterward speak evil of Me. For he who is not against us is on our side. For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.” (Mk. 9:38–41)
As Christian women, we need to have unity with each other. We do not need to agree on everything, nor do we need to pull each other from one church or denomination to another. Jesus’ name is enough for us to respect and agree with each other. The body of Christ is made up of people from all nations and all denominations. He seeks those who are obedient to His Word and who conform themselves to His likeness. There is much work to be done and many souls to be saved. This goal should be enough to unite us.
We can bear much fruit when we pray together: “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them” (Matt. 18:19–20). If every woman is faithful in her walk and prays for the things God shows her and what I listed in the beginning of this chapter, the results will be astounding in each home, church, and city. If each woman follows the expectations of the Lord’s army (as outlined in this chapter), the outcome will be revolutionary. If we could see through God’s eyes, it would look like the entire planet is covered in little light bulbs that are connected together in a golden net.
When we put our prayers on the altar, God will gather what we have prepared for Him. It will be His doing. Where we can’t, He can do the rest. It will be like with David:
Therefore David inquired of the LORD, and He said, “You shall not go up; circle around behind them, and come upon them in front of the mulberry trees. And it shall be, when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of mulberry trees, then you shall advance quickly. For then the LORD will go out before you to strike the camp of the Philistines.” And David did so, as the LORD commanded him; and he drove back the Philistines from Geba as far as Gezer. (2 Sam. 5:23–25)
