The Daily Fountain Devotional of the Church Of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) 19 November 2023 – Tithing
TOPIC: The Prayer Of Agreement
READ: Matthew 18:18-20 (NKJV)
- “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
- “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.
- “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
Agreement means to come into or be in harmony regarding a matter or opinion. There is something very powerful about praying in agreement with someone else. The word “again” used in verse 19 means “once more” and it evidently points to a repeat of the truth in verse 18 that every believer can have power to bind and to loose; it is expressed here in another form, that anything asked for by any two in agreement it shall be done (verse 19). It also means that if you have been praying for something just by yourself and you have not got an answer, when you find someone to join you in a prayer of agreement, Jesus will certainly answer. When believers come together in one accord to pray, the heaven opens: The devil is put to flight. Problems are shaken from their roots and there will be total restoration, deliverance, breakthrough and healing (Acts 12:5-11, 16:25-28).
The effectiveness of prayer of agreement is found where there is mutual love which bonds everyone involved, either as family members or as the body of Christ. The best way to put the prayer of agreement into action is to pray with your spouse. Since the covenant between you two is stronger than that which you have with anyone else, then your prayers of agreement will avail much.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, let mutual love be evident in my family and Church, Amen.
