The prayer in the Body is the prayer in harmony, the prayer of the saints in one accord Acts 1: The way for us to bind what God intends to bind and to loose what God intends to loose is to ask in harmony. He even asks His people in Isaiah, Command Me! God is waiting for our inquiry, our asking, and we can determine the extent to which God can work and operate!
Prayer Ministry of the Church
This is a holy privilege the church has, and we need to exercise it before God so that His will may be done! The highest point of our working together with God is to ask in one accord for God to accomplish what He intends to accomplish. The Collected Works of Watchman Nee, vol. Brother Watchman Nee in the book, The Prayer Ministry of the Church , helps us to see that this is what God desires the church to do today — the church needs to pray! The ministry of the church, the work of the church today, is not primarily to preach the gospel and do many other things, but to pray.
God can do so much more when we pray than when we do our best to work for God yet without much prayer. The prayer ministry of the church is God telling the church what He wants to do, and then the church praying on earth what God wants to do. This is our responsibility as the church today, to declare on the earth that we want what God wants.

The reason God cannot fulfill His will on the earth is because the church fails in this matter of prayer. The earth controls heaven.
The church controls heaven through prayer. May we see this and rise up to pray big prayers, serious prayers, and even strong prayers, the prayers that manifest our God and open the way for Him to move John As this age comes to a close, the hearts of men are getting farther away from God, and our beloved Lord Jesus is rather evil spoken of and used in swear words than appreciated among men.
Watchman Nee: The Prayer Ministry of the Church
Our prayers are not big enough. We still pray for our petty needs. The church as a whole has forsaken its duty and responsibility. We need to rise up and pray prayers that pioneer the way for God. In the prayer meetings of the church we carry out the prayer ministry of the church Acts 1: It also gives some practical advice about how to make prayers effective. I did not agree with everything in the book because of the author's specific denominational beliefs, but I still gleaned some important truths and a desire to "amp up" my prayer life.
