Scripture Reading: “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 18:19).
The power of agreement prayer cannot be over-emphasized. It is a great key to getting things from the Lord. Yet, many believers seem to be neglecting it, since they like praying alone most times.
“Two are better than one” says the Book of Ecclessiastes 4:9. That implies, two people praying together in agreement about a particular matter are better than just one person praying about it.
It is very unfortunate that, many believers today do not have prayer partners. They feel, perhaps, it is irrelevant. They pray alone, fast alone, “vigilise” alone, go to church alone and do almost everything alone. That is too bad! If you are such, please, desist from it.
But, what is agreement prayer? Agreement prayer is the prayer that is offered to God by two or more people who are in perfect agreement of faith with one another concerning their subject of prayer. They both strongly believe that God will grant them their hearts’ desire.
Agreement prayer is Biblical. Leviticus 9:23 says, “And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the people.” I believe that this revelation of the glory of God and the power to bless God’s people was as a result of the agreement prayer of the man Moses and his elder brother Aaron. Also read Numbers 16:20-22. So, two brothers or sisters, ministers or colleagues or even marriage partners, can engage in agreement prayer and see great power and results
Apart from Moses and Aaron, in the book of Acts 12:12, we see that the early church practised agreement prayers, the great apostle Paul and Silas, prayed agreement prayer- Acts 16:25 and 26. In Matthew 26:40, Jesus expected His disciples to watch with Him in prayer. That is agreement prayer! Let us all learn from the Lord and know that, there are times you do not need to pray alone. Infact, your own faith alone will not be able to get you answers from heaven. The problem will not be solved until one or more persons have bombarded heaven with you concerning your request.
