The Power Of The Prayer
Of Agreement For Answered Prayer
The prayer of agreement from Matthew 18:19-20 is the center of this study. It teaches how to use this prayer correctly with the collective faith of others joined with your own faith for answered prayer. This is a great prayer for husbands and wives.
Understand The Prayer Of Agreement
If you have little faith but but you need answered prayer or you need answered prayer quickly, God has provided a means of igniting your faith by joining with others. You only need to look at Matthew 18:19-20 to learn this explosive principle for answered prayer. However, praying with others in agreement creates a few special conditions.
According to Jesus we’re guaranteed answered prayer when we follow His clear instruction for this form of prayer known as the Prayer of Agreement found in Matthew 18:19-20. This particular prayer takes us beyond our own level of faith to obtain anything according to God’s will (if it’s in the Bible as a promise or blessing).
For example if one suffers the loss of a job or someone needs to receive healing. These are needs that must be fulfilled quickly! So rather than praying on your own during such times, you can join with others in prayer for greater faith and power according to what Jesus said. This is because collaborated faith efforts will greatly increase faith so that prayer results can be realized in a shorter time than when we pray alone and in some cases immediately. The prayer of agreement must be used correctly according to the context of verses 19-20.
-Agree In Prayer For Powerful Results-
Prayer Bible Study Scripture
In Matthew 18:19-20, Jesus said:
“19 Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father who is in heaven.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
The key word for the prayer of agreement found in verse 19 is “agree.” This study is going to teach you the significance of how this one word can impact the prayer of agreement for the positive or negative of what you want or need.
Don’t be in a hurry with prayer of agreement. Take time when praying with others to choose those persons who have a like desire as you do to pray correctly and who also want the best for you.
We can pray with others who don’t have our best interest at heart. If you desire to put forth greater, heart-felt faith for what you desire with others, you need people, even strangers who desire to see God’s Word manifested in your life and whatever it’s applied to through prayer.
Praying with a family, for instance, who might not respect you or believe in prayer will not give you the added faith toward what you want or encouragement. In Matthew 18:18 Jesus said: “18 Verily I say unto you, what things soever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and what things soever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
When we pray, we’re loosing what we want or binding what we don’t want. I cover this information and more about prayer and receiving from God in Created For Greatness By God’s Design if you need to learn more on the subject.
While you don’t have control over people who pray for you that you don’t know, you want to make sure that you receive the benefit of this prayer by sharing your need in joined prayer with family, friends and church members who you know respect God’s Word and desire for you to receive exactly what you’ve asked God for in prayer.
For example, you can pray with one or more persons you trust, making sure their understanding of your prayer is aligned with your exact need and request. You must explain to them clearly what you need and make your prayer reflect that need.
If you ask to be healed of freedom from an addiction, then state what you want. “Heavenly Father, please heal me from addiction to pain killers (name the specific medications)…”
The more people you ask to pray with you, the more people who will pray for you that you don’t know. This is another reason to be specific. Tell each person who you ask to pray with you and for you to be just as specific so the growing list of persons will actually increase the faith leading to heaven for binding or loosing what you need according to Matthew 18:18. Also tell them to share your name with the prayer. We need to be specific about everything we pray about. This includes using the names of those who we pray about.
Steps For The Prayer Of Agreement According to Jesus:
- two or more people must gather together in agreement about anything they ask for in prayer
- meeting together in the name of Jesus will insure that He is right there in the midst of our prayer
- ask for what you want in Jesus’ Name and our Heavenly Father will answer it
As our mediator before God, Jesus Christ is right there with us to present that prayer to God immediately on our behalf with the benefit of our joined faith.
Prayer Of Agreement Study In Review
Before you say your prayer with one or more persons in agreement to your prayer request, you must consider the following factors:
- Be clear about what you want. You can’t ask for one thing, but really want another. This will create doubt.
- Be specific. If you want more money, for example, you need to know how much money you want and why you want it.
- Clearly state your request to those praying with you to insure that they are praying in harmony with what you want.
- Choose the person or persons carefully who you’ll be praying with. Make sure they understand this prayer and the principles of the Prayer of Faith.
- Choose people who have your best interest at heart. You can’t pray with someone just because they’re a Christian and you need someone to pray with you. You would do better to pray alone. You need prayer partners who are totally in agreement with you and want you to be blessed.
- Be honest about your situation. God knows the truth when we go before Him.
- Continue to thank God that He has answered your prayer once you’ve prayed.
Always keep in mind that everyone in your prayer circle must be one ACCORD with you in prayer. This is why it’s called the Prayer of Agreement. If you take these tips seriously, you’ll experience accelerated prayer results.
Special Notice: As I close this study, I would like to present two more important factors for answered prayer. Before you say any prayer, always ask for forgiveness of your sins, repent and trust that God has forgiven you immediately. It will keep your heart at peace when entering into prayer. It’s also scriptural for answered prayer according to (Mark 11:26). Also, forgive all others.
Once you have completed any prayer, thank and praise God for answering you as often as possible until you receive your request. Then, continue to be thankful for all God has done for you now and forever.
What To Do Next: Send me your prayer request. State your prayer clearly as I described and then believe with me in agreement that you have received. Make sure others pray about you with the same understanding. Thank and praise God daily to build your faith!
