TODAY’S TOPIC: PRAY IN AGREEMENT, LIVE IN AGREEMENT
SCRIPTURE: Blessed (enjoying enviable happiness, spiritually prosperous—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the makers and maintainers of peace, for they shall be called the sons of God! Matthew 5:9 (AMPC)
The prayer of agreement is only effective when those who agree in prayer are living in agreement in their natural, everyday lives. Living in agreement does not mean never having our own opinions, but it does mean that there is harmony, mutual respect, and honor in our relationships. It means an absence of the things that cause division and strife—like selfishness, anger, resentment, jealousy, bitterness, or comparison. Living in agreement is like being on the same ball team—everyone works together, supports, and encourages each other, believes in, and trusts each other as they all pursue the same goal and share the victory.
The prayer of agreement is very powerful, but it can only be used effectively by those who make the effort to live in agreement. For example, if Dave and I argued and had strife most of the time but wanted to pray in agreement when we had a pressing need, then that would not work. There is no power in agreeing occasionally; we must live in agreement. Live with others respectfully and peacefully. Adapt and adjust yourself to people and things in order to be a maker and maintainer of peace (see Romans 12:16).
Maintaining unity and harmony does require effort, but the power released when people pray who live in agreement is worth it.
Prayer of the Day: God, thank You for the power that is released when I pray. I thank You that right now, incredible power is being released in my life, amen.
