Matt. 18:19.. 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.
I will be working on a series of blogs that will give us a more in-depth look into the different types of prayer. Let it be understood, that all prayer must be in line with, and according to the Word of God. In other words, we cannot pray and expect answers if we are praying for something that God has not approved in His Word already. And all prayer requires time and having fellowship with God. All prayer requires our faith to remain strong, especially when time is ticking by and we see no results.
This prayer involves people who are agreeing with a vision or an expected outcome. This prayer must not be vague. There must be a discussion before this prayer, so that the parties are agreed on what is needed or desired. For example, a husband and wife might agree that they need a new vehicle. The husband might have in mind a pick-up truck and the wife is imagining a cute little sporty car. When they come together to pray for a new vehicle they must be in agreement over the exact same vehicle. The make, the model, the year, and even down to the color if desired. Even healing can mean something different when people are praying for a healing. We must be specific with God. And being specific will help to prevent giving the devil a play area to mess around with, in our prayer lives.
We must also pray with expectations of the desired results. When our faith wavers (and most of us have these times), we must repent and receive forgiveness and reinforce our original decree and pray it again. We all make mistakes in our walk of faith, but the important thing is to keep walking. Do not give up. We must not become discouraged and quit before we receive our answer.
Jesus said if any two, in His name, are on earth and agree. We are on earth. Also, it would be wise to write down your agreements. When we see it written in black and white, it reinforces our consciousness and our faith. Remember, the mind is the battleground of Satan. We must make a conscious effort to remain strong in our thinking and agreeing. Writing it down will help to renew our determination in knowing that we have asked God and that He answers.
Be sure to remain in agreement on all aspects of the prayer that was prayed. Harmony and agreement brings a deeper and more personal fellowship with God, and brings about a true confidence and assurance that penetrates the heart of a person. This is the fruits of our love walk .. To remain in agreement, mutual respect, honor and maintaining the harmony with one another.
And remember, just as harmony works for us, disharmony works against us and gives the devil an opened door to come through. James 3:16 says ..
“For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.” John 16:24 says ..
“Ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.”
Remember, prayer is a privilege and not the duty of a Christian. Prayer is fellowship with God. And prayer is not meant to be a monologue but a dialogue between God and the prayer party or parties.
