“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” (Matthew: 18:19-20, (NIV).
What a powerful promise! When two or more of His disciples agree in prayer, He is there with them. He meets with them in prayer. He connects their souls in prayer. When they focus on Him, He joins their minds and hearts in prayer. As they allow the Holy Spirit to direct their prayers, something miraculous begins to happen. Their desires become one with His will, and He binds them together to achieve this most powerful promise–that if two agree about what they ask for, it shall be done.
He is the lover of your soul, and He is with you when you pray alone in your private prayer closet. He hears your prayer and acts in accordance to His will. Never forsake the heart surrender of private prayer time with the Lord (Romans 8:26-27). Without individual prayer lives, this promise of the power of agreement has little power. However when two of His lovers come into His presence in agreement seeking His face, two wills are surrendered instead of one. Not only are two wills surrendered, but they are linked together in petition, and His power is unleashed to achieve His greatest purpose. When He becomes our total desire–when we seek His heart agreeing in faith–our prayers become His prayer. We limit God when we hesitate to believe. We limit the power of agreement when we do not come together believing, trusting, and applying faith. We have not because we ask not. If two are truly surrendered to the Holy Spirit together in prayer, what they ask shall be in His will, and their prayers will always be answered.
Always claim this promise of agreement. Never limit it. When two pray together in His Name, united by one purpose in His Spirit, He is also there. He joins spirits and prayers in agreement. We become one in prayer with Him, and nothing can hinder the power with which God answers.
