Subject: December 7th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

And he saith unto them, It is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer. Matthew 21.13.

When we talk about the prayer of the church we are no less concerned with private prayer nor sense any less the importance of personal prayer. Yet let us see that it is a rule in the kingdom of God that what one person is unable to do in certain respects is to be done through mutual and corporate help. Especially in the matter of prayer, there is the need for mutuality. All who follow the Lord closely frequently see the need of praying with other believers. At times they feel the inadequacy of their own prayer. Particularly in praying for such a colossal subject as the kingdom of God, it requires the strength of the whole church. “My house,” says the Lord, “shall be called a house of prayer” (Matt. 21.13). To this we may add, “whose house are we” (Heb 3.6).
