“…if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by My Father in Heaven.”
Matthew 18:19 (NIV)
There are three tips I want to share with you to increase your prayer power:
- It will increase your prayer power.
- It will only work if everyone is in agreement.
- You have to agree and ask.
The prayer of agreement will increase your prayer power. If you are facing a big job like cleaning your garage, it goes faster when somebody helps you. Not just because there are more people, but there is something empowering about working together on a big job. Working by yourself can be lonely.
This prayer only works if everyone is in agreement. Have you ever had somebody ask you to pray with them and you had this thought, “I’m not sure that God will do that for you?” In that situation it would be better not to pray with them. Even Jesus’ ministry was impacted by other people’s thoughts and unbelief. The Bible says in Mark, chapter 6, that when He went to His hometown, He could do no mighty works because of their unbelief. The prayer of agreement only works if both people are convinced of God’s will and pulling the same direction. In other words they need to be “in agreement.”
Sometimes prayer is a private thing between you and God, but it can also be something that you do with your friends or family. Don’t think that you have to do it all by yourself. If you are facing something big, find somebody who believes like you do and ask them to pray with you.
To pray this prayer you have to agree and ask. Many times you will hear people say, “I agree with you.” That is good, but you are only half way there. Once you find somebody who will agree with you, then you need to pray and ask God together.
