If someone asks you to pray for them, what is your first reaction?
Is it something like, “O no, what do I say? How do I pray? What if I don’t know what to say?” Etc., etc., etc.
Instead, why not just agree with them? That is what the word tells us to do.
Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
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 18:18-20
The Greek says this is concerning every, “pantos”, matter, “pragmatos”, that we agree, “sumphonesosin” (symphonize, harmonize), on. This literally means that every matter we agree on and request, God the Father will give it to us.
The word “again”, means that Jesus is repeating and confirming a second time for emphasis, the truth of the believer’s authority of binding and loosing which He states in the previous verse and which He first established two chapters earlier.
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Matthew 16:19
This directive was not just given to Peter but to all believers. Keys are to open and close locks on doors and gates and to bind shackles and to loose and set free. The believer’s keys of the Kingdom of Heaven are the authorization and authority of invoking the name of Jesus Christ and operating in the dynamic power of the Holy Spirit. By these all true believers have the authority and the ability to effectuate the will of God on earth as it is in heaven. By these we are to bind the enemy and to set the captives free.
We can operate these keys individually when necessary or we can come together and agree as to any request for any matter and our Father in heaven will do it for us . And Jesus will be in our midst to confirm it, sanction it and bless it.
Do you realize what power is in this promise Jesus has made to us?
I recently received a prayer request on Skype for baby Isaiah who was born premature and the doctors were not giving any encouragement. I simply replied “I agree.” Here is the screen print of their request and my response:
Six days later, I received a message back that baby Isaiah was off the vemtilator, one week old and doing better each day. Here is the screen print of their message and my response:
Why should we complicate it any further than believing what Jesus told us to do to get our requests answered.
Try it next time someone asks you to pray for them. Or, if you need prayer for yourself, ask a fellow believer to agree with you in your request.
And when your prayer request is answered, please share it with us in the comments section below. It will help encourage other believers.
I look forward to hearing from you!
