When you visit another country or even another part of our country, you’ll notice several unique features to their community, to their culture. What they believe, whether they are relational, friendly or not, what kind of food they eat and of course what language or dialect they speak. A shared language is one of the key marks of any community. Just a simple “Hello” is often all it takes to recognize the community to which one belongs. The same was true of the first century church. They had a shared language it was the language of prayer. It was a shared focus, one that focused on spending time together talking to God in prayer.
