Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (KJV)

Joshua 3:10 And Joshua said, Hereby ye shall know that the living God is among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites. (KJV)

Are you in agreement?

Throughout this year, you were asked to agree with me as I prayed. The conditions for God to be in the midst of the prayer are clear.

  • First, it cannot be just any two or three people together, the people have to be believers; those who have accepted the invitation to salvation and walk in the power of God’s promises.
    Revelation 21:3 Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God. (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition AMPC)
    • It does not matter whether you have an official capacity in the church or not. If you are a believer, you can stand in agreement with any other believer as they pray. Thank you for extending your faith and standing in agreement.
      1 Corinthians 5:4 When you gather in the name of the Lord Jesus and I am present with you in spirit, and the infinite power of our Lord Jesus is present also, (The Voice)
  • Second, in order for you to agree, you have to believe you are gathered together in the name of Christ, trusting His intercession.
    Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in [dependence upon] His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him. (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition AMPC)
    • Each time you read the devotional, be it daily or as you think about it, you are showing agreement. You are saying you believe the information provided is God sent. If you did not believe it, you would not read it. In all of your interactions, try the word and see if God is in it. You don’t want to attach yourself to something that “looks” good. You only want to be attached God, Who is good.
      1 John 4:4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. (KJV)
  • Lastly, you must believe the prayers we pray are not to fulfill some fleshly desire. You must believe the spirit man is asking, in entire submission, to the will of the Father in heaven.
    Hebrews 10:22 We come closer to God and approach him with an open heart, fully convinced that nothing will keep us at a distance from him. For our hearts have been sprinkled with blood to remove impurity, and we have been freed from an accusing conscience. Now we are clean, unstained, and presentable to God inside and out! (The Passion Translation TPT)
    • Ask the Lord to assist you as you discern the motivation. As you continue to spend time with the Lord and try the spirit, the motivation will be exposed. Not just for this devotional but in all the prayers you pray or stand in agreement with.
      Mark 10:37-38 They said to Him, “Grant that we may sit [with You], one on Your right and one on Your left, in Your glory [Your majesty and splendor in Your kingdom].” 38 But Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be baptized with the baptism [of suffering and death] with which I am baptized?” (Amplified Bible AMP)

If you meet all the conditions, Elohei Mikkarov [el- ō-hē mick-a-rove] (God who is near) is in the midst. He is the very present help and employs all of His power and majesty to empower you as you intercede. He is right there to answer prayer. As you continue to stand in agreement,  He will also continue to teach your hands to war and your fingers to fight.

Please agree with me as I pray:

Father God, every morning I have asked those who have joined me in this devotional to agree with me in prayer. I believe they did exactly what I asked. I felt their strength throughout this year, and I really needed it. When people read this devotional year after year, I will continue to be fortified by their agreement and I will still need it. What a wonderful thing to live in a world where I can be gathered together with other believers and not be in the same building. We gathered in our hearts and in our minds. As they meditate on the devotional, we are gathered. I believe the prayers written for each day will affect the reader. I also believe the reader will internalize the prayers. As they see themselves in the prayer, they will be in agreement because they show my desire to submit to Your will, not to bring any fleshly desire. Each prayer has been a request for You to change me, to make me better, to show me what I need to stop doing; and to show me what I need to start doing. All to be done for Your glory and not for mine. I repent for being concerned about what the readers would think about me as they read the prayers. Thank You for showing me these prayers are my testimony and my light. Thank You for those who are standing in agreement with me. I pray You will do the work in them You have done in me. I thank You for being in the midst of us as we prayed…
