Praying in agreement with fellow believers can quickly bring about answers to prayer. The prayer of agreement is a wonderful tool that husbands and wives can use together to build a bridge of faith to our Father God.
To understand what it is and how to use this type of prayer, we will look at The Holy Bible and read what Jesus told His disciples;
Matthew 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
What conditions need to be met when praying in agreement?
Jesus tells us:
- When two or more believers gather and agree what it is they want, it will be done as they ask
- When meeting together in the name of Jesus we ensure that He is right there with us
- When we ask what we want in His name, our Father in Heaven will do it for us
My wife and I have seen this prayer work many times; providing relief from pain and suffering, financial hardship, and many other challenges we have faced as born-again believers and followers of Jesus Christ.
I have witnessed the prayer of agreement work over huge distances and watched as our Heavenly Father healed my friends’ wife from sickness and disease in response to the prayer of faith we agreed on. (NOTE: My friend lives in Africa and I live in Ireland. The prayer was agreed, written down and read aloud by both of us in faith and Father answered our prayer)
The Prayer of Agreement is Powerful! But remember to read the small print. What do I mean? The clue is in the word AGREEMENT.
You and your prayer partner or partners MUST agree exactly on what you are praying for. Be specific and be certain before you seek a response to your prayer that you ALL agree that the outcome or answer to your prayer is God’s will.
How do you know what is God’s will?
Read The Word of God and find a promise from our Father that you can relate to your prayer request. Once you know the will of God, it is simply a matter of agreeing on the wording of your request and speaking the prayer of faith.
How to Make The Prayer of Agreement Work for You:
- Be certain you are praying with believers!
- Be sure to agree on the prayer!
- Be specific about your needs!
- Be purposeful and speak the prayer of faith over your needs!
- Be thankful to our Father in Heaven and expect your prayer to be answered!
Important: Before you come to God in prayer, it is good practice to seek forgiveness for your sins, repent and believe that God has forgiven you. If you are holding onto any grudges or anger, you should also forgive others.
Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
What To Do Next: Ask other believers to pray for you with the same understanding and agreement in faith. Thank and praise God daily to build belief and bring what has already been done for you in the spiritual realm into the natural realm! Read our lesson on Positive Profession
