Question: I've also heard people say 'let's touch and agree' when they pray together about something. This is not the correct use of Scripture. Do you think our prayers are less effective when we pray the Scriptures incorrectly? or does GOD see our heart concerning the matter.

Answer: The phrase 'touch and agree' is not in the Bible, but it is usually used to convey the concept of unity in the body of Christ. The Lord encourages believers to unite in prayer, to be of one mind, and to live as one body. (See Matthew 18:18-20; Acts 4:24; 1 Corinthians 1:10; Philippians 2:1-2)
