Prayer and fasting is not only an individual relationship with God, it is also a time to agree with another or others for a matter. We see this in the New Testament among the people of God’s gatherings.
The principle is simple and stated in a different venue by our Messiah King Jesus. When speaking about conflict with another brother, Jesus gives clear details on how to bring it to resolution and then explains the principle and power behind banding together in prayer as the children of God:
“Again I assure you that if two of you agree on earth about ANYTHING YOU ASK, then my Father who is in heaven will do it for you. For where two or three are gathered in my name, I’m there with them.”” (Matthew 18:19–20, CEB)
Therefore, we are wise to gather someone else alongside us as we pray and fast and ask them to agree with us about the desired answer.
Today, take a few minutes and listen to the encouragement through the link posted here. Then, gather someone – a believing spouse or parent for example – and pray and fast together for that urgent necessity that cannot wait any longer!
