The Importance of Agreement
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. — MATTHEW 18:19–20
Jesus said that wherever two or three people are gathered together in His Name, He is there in the midst of them. What is Jesus doing there in the midst of them? He’s there to make good on what they ask and agree upon, because He said in John 14:14, “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”
Many times, though, people lack agreement. For example, if something you’re agreeing on concerns another person, that other person will have to agree with you too. It won’t work in disagreement. Get him or her to agree with you.
Notice that Matthew 18:19 says that it shall be done—not that it might be done or that there is a possibility of it being done. It shall be done!
I’ve had people come to me and ask, “Brother Hagin, will you agree with me?” Then they tell me what they want.
I say to the person, “All right, let’s agree together. I’ll pray. You listen and agree with it.” You see, if both of us pray, one of us might go in one direction, and the other might go in another direction. Then we wouldn’t be in agreement.
The majority of the time, after I pray and say to the person, “Is it done?” he or she says, “Oh, I sure hope it is.”
Then I say, “No, it isn’t, because I’m believing and you’re hoping. There’s no agreement here.” Amos 3:3 says, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”
Confession: There is power in the prayer of agreement. When another person and I agree in prayer, we can count it done! We can agree in prayer for health and healing!
