“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.”Matthew 18:18-20 NKJV
Dear brothers and sisters, I urge you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to join in my struggle by praying to God for me. Do this because of your love for me, given to you by the Holy Spirit.Romans 15:30 NLT
In our faith circles we often hear the phrase, “please agree with me,” or “I’ll be agreeing with you about that.” The idea is that two people who are believing the same thing can pray and see greater results. There is great power in agreement. But I have seen one of the problems we have is that we don’t really know what the term agreement means in its New Testament context, and how we can tap into the power that’s available. In fact, sometimes we say “I agree,” when we don’t actually know if we do or not. One thing is certain, if agreement in prayer is important, then we need contact with other believers in order to tap that power. We need community and communion. In today’s lesson we will begin to examine this subject more closely and help you to take full advantage of what God has provided.
