Matthew 18:19-20..Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
The first demonstration of the power of agreement was recorded for us in Genesis 11 in the building of the Tower of Babel. The Bible says that the whole earth was of one language and of one speech and they said, Let us build a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven, and let us make us a name. And the LORD said, Behold the people is one and they have all one language, and this they begin to do, and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. When you come together in agreement, whatever you set out or imagined to do will be achieved because it is the Word of God. Therefore prayer of agreement is very powerful. The LORD emphasized this concept of prayer to us believers so that we can confidently go to our Father in Heaven for anything that we desire because it will be given to us.
How is your prayer life? Do you take prayer seriously? Our Lord Jesus promised to be in our midst when we gather together in His name. How do we gather together in His name? The name Jesus, is the only name given to us by which we can be saved (Acts of apostles 4:12). Gathering together in His Name means you believe that all you will ask the Father will be answered through Him or because of Him. Remember the reason why our Lord Jesus came to this world was to make Father known through Him and also that the only way to get to the Father was through Him (John 14:6).
In agreement, the two of us are looking unto Jesus who is present in our midst through the eyes of our Faith. Our focus must continuously be on Him because we are expecting answers as we lift our voices unto Him in faith. We must agree in Faith that there is no mountain that is before us that God cannot surmount. As you are using your eyes of Faith, continue to see the various miracles He has performed, and see your problems getting solved as two of you agree together.
You and your spouse are unstoppable pair, you and a brother or sister who shares your faith is another two that can touch the hem of Jesus’ garment. The importance of this verse is that God is demanding that we put everything into prayer, and we need a prayer partner that will make it possible for us to get quick result because one person shall chase a thousand enemies while two shall chase ten thousand to flee. Amen.
Prayer The end is very near, let us pray for salvation of souls and the kingdom of God to be established on earth, while the work of Satan is destroyed. Amen.
