One disagreement can destroy a lifelong friendship.. that is strife doing what it does best. It baits you, "come on in,argue pick up offenses", it takes a mature person to overlook an offense...know when to say,"no I'm not going to take this bait I'm going to stay in peace."
The Bible says one can send 1,000 to flight, Two 10,000.. This refers to demons.. By standing TOGETHER IN PRAYER, this means you're 10 times more powerful in succeeding, your 10 times more able to win the battle against an attack of the enemy. You can be so blessed when you stay unified..
