It came to pass that the disciples were gathered together and were united in mighty prayer and fasting.—3 Nephi 27:1
Righteousness and unity are profoundly significant. When people love God with all their hearts and righteously strive to become like Him, there is less strife and contention in society. There is more unity.—Quentin L. Cook
