Bible Study: The Power of Agreement in Prayer
Written by Christi Given | January 29, 2018
In the Bible, the Lord says when two people agree on earth, whatever we ask, it shall be done. The key is agreement when we ask God for a request, and when two or three are gathering, either in person or on the phone and so forth, God should be there. When I am on the phone with certain people, or when certain people who have same spirit that I do are praying, I feel the literal, tangible presence of God. I don’t always feel the presence all the time when I pray with people, and I wonder why. Below I will explain the keys to effective prayer and mountains being moved.
Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. (Matthew 18:19)
The Lord showed me the key is agreement. What does the word “agreement” mean? It means harmony and unity. Like when a musician is playing in key, there is a melody or harmony that makes it beautiful. When something is out of tune, it is out of key. This is the way it is with prayer and faith. If we are out of agreement or alignment of the spirit, or if there is blatant sin, God may not hear or be present. We are, in a sense, out of key with the spirit of God and one another.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, agreement means “harmony of opinion, action or character.” When I pray with someone of the same character or caliber, I feel the electrifying, powerful presence of God. I see things shift so quickly when I agree with someone yoked to me in spirit, especially in maturity and vision. Sometimes when I pray with people and they’re not on the same page, they almost want to argue about the spiritual. It’s very interesting to see the differences between the prayer sessions.
I love to intercede and to pray for people and with people. Remember to pray with people who are FOR YOU and are in agreement with you, and it will allow the spirit of God to flow unhindered. May the Lord bless you in your time of prayer and may you feel the tangible presence of God. Remember, where there is unity, God commands a blessing.
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brethren to dwell together in unity!
It is like the precious oil upon the head,
Running down on the beard,
The beard of Aaron,
Running down on the edge of his garments.
It is like the dew of Hermon,
Descending upon the mountains of Zion;
For there the Lord commanded the blessing—Life forevermore. (Psalm 133: 1-3)
PI Girls, ask the Lord to bring unity among you and your family, friends and peers, and ask for God to move in Jesus’ name.
