Put Your Power Tools to Work 05 February If two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.
The prayer of agreement is one of the most powerful tools God has given us as believers. It is the prayer that Jesus Himself guaranteed would bring results every time. Its especially powerful in marriages. When a husband and wife come into agreement about something, it is so powerful! But sometimes couples dont seem to be getting results. Maybe you and your spouse have prayed the prayer of agreement, perhaps over your finances or your children, and nothing appears to be happening. I have found, when that occurs, the problem usually lies in one of four areas. 1) Run a harmony check. The word agree in Matthew 18:19 can also be translated to harmonize or make a symphony. When the members of a symphony are tuning their instruments, the sound isnt much to hear. But when they all begin to harmonize, the sound they make is tremendously powerful. The same is true in prayer. Believers agreeing together in the Holy Spirit are a powerful, unstoppable force. Thats why Satan fights Christian families. Thats why he doesnt want men and women unified in marriage. He wants us fussing and fighting all the time because he knows it will hinder our prayers (1 Peter 3:7). 2) Establish your heart on Gods Word. The prayer of agreement should be based on the Word. Find scriptures that cover your request. That word from God is the faith foundation of your prayer. Now you are agreeing on something God has already said. 3) Fix your mind on the Word. Soak your mind in it. Keep it before your eyes. When the devil tells you something contrary to the Word, speak. Bring every thought captive (2 Corinthians 10:5). Think on what the Bible says (Philippians 4:8). 4) Act as if its done. This is where many people miss it. You have to act on your faith. Dont leave your prayer closet and start wringing your hands and speaking fear and unbelief. Speak the desired end result. Speak what you just agreed on. Refuse to act like that issue is a problem anymore. When someone asks you about it, say: Glory to God, that issue is handled. My wife/husband and I have agreed in prayer. God is honoring our agreement. And as far as were concerned, that problem is behind us. The prayer of agreement is a powerful tool. So dont despair if youre not seeing results. Go through this list and check your heart. Then, put your power tools to work!Exodus 26-28; Mark 13-14When I agree with another in prayer about anything that we ask, it shall be done for us by our Father in heaven. Matthew 18:19, New American Standard
