Agreement In Prayer

It is Possible!

I hear people speak about how they feel Christians cannot agree on anything, but I want to declare that it is possible to agree with God. The people of God can agree in prayer if they choose to focus their faith in the same direction. God has made promises to us that if we would turn away from all that creates disagreement and pray, He would hear from Heaven and heal our land (2 Chron 7:14). Agreement in prayer is not an impossible thing, but it can be a difficult thing if we as His people are unwilling to turn away from that which divides us.

Agreement is a Key: 

In Acts 1:14 we read “they all joined together constantly in prayer” and in Acts 4:24, “they raised their voices together in prayer”. This powerful word ”together” is the agreement key that opens the door to the power of God. The Bible says “with one accord” the waiting disciples were gathered for prayer in an upper room and expected something from God that they had never seen before (Acts 2:1). What were the results of such unity in prayer?Suddenly there came a sound from heaven and within moments the Holy Spirit was poured out (Acts 2:2-4). A “suddenly” happened. 

Another example of this agreement key is when Peter and John are beaten for healing a lame man and commanded not to teach or speak any longer in the name of Jesus (Acts 4:16-22). Another suddenly takes place in the room they were gathered and great boldness and miraculous signs and wonders were released for boldness in ministry of the Word of God (Acts 4:29-31).

The Harmony of Agreement:

People praying together, agreeing together releases power, because there is a beautiful harmony with the purpose of God’s heart. Recently we came together and experienced this for ourselves. We committed to a season of prayerful agreement and a sweet atmosphere arose when one person started singing a spontaneous song. Two others continued the song with new verses in perfect harmony. Everyone there felt the Holy Spirit directing a prayer theme through the entire time with one intercessor adding to the prayers of another. It was a powerful time and felt very effective.

Unity of Spirit (Eph 4:3): 

There is a unity that we often do not consider as everyone prays with one heart and mind under the direction of Jesus. Yet it is this unity of Spirit that brings encouragement, builds faith and helps everyone to concentrate, not just on prayer, but on Christ. We all become keenly aware of what the Holy Spirit is doing. The harmony keeps us all alert and focused. We are agreeing in prayer and shaking the foundations of all that Satan has established against God’s purposes. The intent of God is recognized and being made known to the principalities and powers in the heavenly realm (Eph 3:9-11). It might feel like a mystery, but it is the calling of God to all believers.

“Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, make a symphony together) about whatever (anything and everything) they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven.” (Mt 18:19 -Amp)

Dream with God:

To pray in agreement is to promote the dreams of God with one another. I don’t know how you feel, but I want to dream the dreams of God together with other like-minded people. It is encouraging when we don’t have to carry a heavy burden alone. God has great plans and His Kingdom is increasing on the Earth. Our highest purpose is to agree with others in alignment with His will. Its what makes the fellowship of believers a House of Prayer. 

Like a Symphony:

Praying in agreement is harmonizing together like a symphony. When an orchestra is tuning up, everything can sound like a lot of noise, because every instrument is doing it’s own thing. But when the conductor raises his baton, the instruments come together in harmony. That’s how prayer should be when Jesus is the conductor of the meeting.

One Response to “Agreement In Prayer”

  • Leanne Dorn:

    As I was on vacation for 10 days with no access to a computer, I missed the last five messages. Thank you for these great insights and outsights. I agree in prayer to strengthen myself in the Lord and dream big, follow Jesus, disciple well, listen intentionally, speak wisely, surrender to His transforming fire, and see from God’s perspective. We live in exciting times for we have an awesome God Who loves us and leads us. Can’t wait to worship with the Bateman’s this morning. Lovingly, Leanne
