Matthew 18:19 (NET) Again, I tell you the truth, if two of you on earth agree about whatever you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.

Two brothers were praying the “prayer of agreement” that their neighbor’s business would fail so that their own would succeed. They prayed this way because they believed that the fastest way for their fast food business to grow is when Mrs. Anderson’s own fails and shuts down. They fasted and prayed, got anointing oil from their “prophet” and sprinkled it in front of Mrs. Anderson’s business at night, but their “prayers” were not answered. Their agreement was not ratified by heaven. They were not disciples of the Lord but greedy churchgoers who needed to be saved.

It is important to note that those to whom today’s Bible verse is directed are not just ordinary people coming together to agree on a matter but disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ coming together to agree. Disciples are believers who have been trained and transformed by the words of Christ (see John 8:31-32). They are those whose desires would now naturally align with the Lord’s desires because they now have the mind of Christ.

When disciples come together and can agree on a matter, their agreement on that matter should usually demonstrate and confirm the Lord’s will concerning that matter. I have been in a situation where I really wanted something and believed it was the will of God to get that thing done, but when I discussed it with my brethren who are disciples of Christ, we couldn’t agree on the matter, and through humility, I learned that my original position was not in agreement with the will of God, that was why it was impossible to get other true disciples to agree with me on that matter. When saints come together to pray prayers of agreement, their corporate goal should be to ensure that they are in agreement with the Lord’s will on the issues requiring prayers.

Go into today remembering that one reason the prayer of agreement among the saints is so powerful is that our agreement as saints demonstrates alignment with the will of God on the issues.

Prayer: Ask God to give you the mind of Christ so you will have a more fruitful prayer life.
