IF TWO OF YOU AGREE
THURSDAY 21 OCTOBER 2021
God is willing and pleased to do it if two Christians come together to agree about anything they ask for. In fact, God uses the prayer of agreement to reveal the answer to our humble requests.
Reference: Matthew 18:19-20 New International Version (NIV) "Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them."
God always wants us to do our part. If two or more persons come together to pray concerning anything according to God's will, receiving answers to their prayers is inevitable because they have committed God by doing their part. Whatever the request is, we must take our stand in the truth that God always listens when we pray in line with His will.
How do we know that we are praying according to God's will? The Bible says, "If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you" (John 15:7 NIV). By studying the Word and knowing the will of God concerning your prayer requests, you can gain a deeper understanding of the power of agreement prayer and why it works.
Answering our prayers is one of the true ways God demonstrate His love towards us. Through the power of agreement prayer, we can get answers to our pressing needs and receive the blessings God has in store for us. Two people coming together to agree about anything or request means that their prayer conversations are shared by both minds. So it doesn't matter whether the request is so pleasing to the ear or not. What matters is that they have one mind concerning the request. I said this because the mind is a very busy domain. As Christians, there are times we can face competing systems of thought all around us, and for this reason, both persons or more must condition their minds and keep them focused on the prayer requests (see Acts 1:14 NASB). Although in this verse, some translations used the term, "with one accord", it is still the same as "with one mind".
Once we are able to take control of our thoughts and direct the same prayer conversations to God, we are in agreement with God. The gate of our mind and heart must be checked on in order to determine what enters, so that its bundle of activity for the duration of the prayer will not deviate from the request. Another important point is that we must be thinking and praying according to the Scripture. As long as we can locate the solution from the Scriptures, we are coming into agreement in line with God's will (see 1 John 5:14 NIV). Remember, the Scriptures contain God's special revelations that help us understand truths and realities that address the prayer requests which cannot be obtained by any other means. Therefore, it must be our very intention to get into the mind of God concerning the requests.
When we pray God's Word in every aspect of our requests, His Word will influence the agreement prayer and yield our desired outcomes. In addition, God always wants us to agree in prayer because He enjoys seeing His people walk in harmony, which is the vehicle He uses to respond to our requests and grant us the answers (see 1 Corinthians 1:10 NIV). Shalom!
Scripture Reading - Amos 3:3; Matthew 18:20; John 14:14; Philippians 4:6.
Guided Prayer: Father, your Word says that if two or more Christians on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them in heaven. From this divine perspective, a full dimension of grace to receive from you is available through the prayer of agreement. Thank you for the power to come through with the answers to my prayers. Therefore, I'm forever grateful that my prayers and supplication are swiftly established in my life anytime I agree with other Christians in Jesus' Name, Amen!
