“Again I say unto you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.” – Matthew 18:19 (ESV)

Jesus teaches us that there is tremendous power in the prayer of agreement. The principle is very simple. Two or more people have to be in agreement with God’s will—and with one another—on the specific request they are presenting before the Lord.

This means that they are approaching the throne of God and praying for the exact same thing in faith. Whether it’s three or three hundred, the prayer of agreement is effective if hearts are truly united. God gave us this method so that we would be successful not only in our prayer lives, but also in our relationships with one another.

This is not to say that individual prayer is not powerful and effective. Of course it is! But when God sees unity among His people, Jesus Christ is glorified and our prayers are much more effective.

As we join with other believers in pureness of heart, we will strengthen our relationships and accomplish great things for the Kingdom.
