    V.2 - being likeminded, of one accord, of one mind. Paul's speaking to ALL the churches, even the ones of today. Have you ever really thought about how that one accord, one mind can be brought about in even just one church with the different ethnic, thought patterns, etc.? It can only be done through prayer AND fasting, with tears of supplication to God. He's not coming for a church-scattered.
