Untapped Resource

I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it
will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come
together in my name, there am I with them.

Here is an untapped resource! Perhaps, not many take Jesus seriously about this. Actually, I don’t know how many sit down with one or two others and agree in prayer about something they hope to change?

If not many, then perhaps it’s because we fail to see why it should work this way. What’s so special about prayers in agreement?

Maybe it taps into a principle related to the very nature of God Himself.

The Father, Son and Spirit are in perfect relationship. Complete harmony! In everything, agreement!

Unity, harmony, agreement! These are eternal principles, for God is in them. They are as real in the spiritual realm as gravity in the physical world. Perhaps even more enduring.

Maybe this is why there is special power in prayers born out of agreement. This is how things work – have always worked – in the kingdom of heaven!

  1. Untapped resource - what an aptly named title!

    I wonder about our prayers sometimes. Sorry - I wonder about MY prayers sometimes. About my faith sometimes. What about verses like these - and the mustard seed faith? When was the last time we called the elders to pray over the sick? When was the last time we prayed with faith that God would work in ways we might not understand - yet believe that he can? Do we pray for healing? If we do, do we expect it to happen? Has "not my will, but yours be done" become a fail-safe or excuse not to pray boldly?

    Lord, teach us how to pray!
