“I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.” (Matthew 18:19 NLT)
Are you facing a personal situation in which you needed God to act like yesterday? If not you then maybe you know someone you is going through something like that, but regardless of the details I want to be your prayer partner today because as we agree on your situatuon God will go into action on your behalf. I’m not saying that you praying alone is not effective so don’t go off on a tangent, but we learn in Ecclesiastes that “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour(Ecclesiastes 4:9 KJV)." Evidently Jesus wanted us to be able to tap into the power of agreement, but some still neglect this powerful prayer strategy and insist on being a Lone Ranger. In the kingdom of God there is no such thing as the Lone Ranger anointing and we all need assistance from others of “like precious faith” at sometime in our walk with God.
Today let us agree in prayer that God will open doors of opportunity for you right when you need it. Let us agree that your family situations are now improving. Let us agree that you experience supernatural debt cancellation very soon. Let us agree that your mind is made whole and you no longer experience mental torment. Let us agree that you are walking in divine health and healing right now because by the stripes of Jesus you have been healed and redeemed from sickness. Let us agree that your ministry is flourishing and the necessary finances are at your disposal to accomplish your divine mandate. Let us agree that unsaved friends and family are accepting Christ as their Lord and Savior before the month is over. Let us agree that divine creativity is being stimulated in your mind now and those projects which have been conceived from the Spirit of God are being completed with ease and you will immediately begin working on the next one.
The Lord wants you to know that the delay in the answers to your prayers haven’t been his denials, but you just needed the extra faith push that comes from agreement to get it done. You can’t agree with everybody becasue their faith may not be on the same level as yours, but agree with faith that is at your level or greater. You will even see obstacles dissolve as you agree in prayer. There will be times when praying alone will yield the answer, but be sensitive to the Holy Spirit so that you will know when you need to get another to agree in faith with you.
