The power of prayer is magnified when believers come together in unity; for it is in the gathering of two or three for prayer that we are assured of the presence of God to help us. “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them”. Reading Matthew 18:18-20, a portion of which is quoted here, should encourage every believer to take hold on God’s promise to provide what we ask as we are gathered for prayer.
Our gathering is the forum for his presence; and what is especially significant about this is that it does not have to be an overwhelming majority of persons; no, just where two or three are gathered together in agreement. That agreement is based upon the facts that whoever gathers believes the promise of answered prayer and that we have the authority to use the Name of Jesus in receiving His provision.
Believers must not become intimidated when a large group is reluctant to pray, a small number is more than sufficient. Find one who is inclined to agreement with the word of God, someone who will join with you in prayer. Discuss the matter, subject, or persons to be prayed for, and then lay it out before God, trusting in the promise of His word.
In the gathering of two or three for prayer there should not be any concern for faith since we have become part of the faith family with authority to use the Name of Jesus. In prayer we must be assured of John 15:7, “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you”. As a member of the faith family
