Prayer of Agreement

I love how simple Jesus puts things in Scripture! Matthew 18:19 reads “Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in Heaven.”

What an extravagant promise!  Do you believe it?  Sometimes we put conditions on it to explain why we don’t see the movement we desire.  But Jesus didn’t.

Interestingly, the word “agree” in Greek means to agree together in a bargain.  It also has the connotation of two musical instruments that are sounding in harmony.  I love that!  Jesus delights in the symphony of our prayers coming to Him in unity!

How little we understand the power of being “one” in agreement!  Genesis 11:6 “The Lord said, ‘Indeed the people are one and they all have one language….now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.”  This verse has always amazed me!  Nothing impossible to them because they were in agreement!  If only the church was truly united, what could happen?

Too often, unbelief in the simple Word of God clouds our ability to “sound” in harmony.  We might say the words, but our hearts doubt if it could really happen, giving off a sour, discordant note.

Let’s believe God.  What’s the desire of your heart?  Find someone to agree with you in faith.  Nothing is impossible with God.  Let the beautiful sound of your agreement arise to Heaven today!
