This piece shows sets of hands grasped together in gestures of prayer, with the arms overlapping in a plaid-like crisscrossing formation. Above the hands is a burst in the sky, not a realistic cloud formation as seen in nature, but bursts of bright colour and movement indicating spiritual breakthrough: the Holy Spirit’s presence.
"For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:20)
After describing standing firm and arming ourselves to be spiritually ready, Ephesians 6 urges us towards prayer in verse 18:
"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people."
So even though we may be armed and individually ready, we are battling as a community that is strongest when united in prayer.
