“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:19-20)
When we think of the prayer meetings we have been a part of, many stand out as a group of individual Christians together in one room lifting their individual petitions to Heaven but without leadership that directed the group in a single voice. Christians gather for more than comfort and edification, we gather to lift corporate concerns to the single Father of all. As the Lord teaches, we are assured of answer when our collective voices speak of the same concern for kingdom and will.
Murray reminds us of “what an unspeakable privilege this of united prayer is, and what power it might be. If the believing husband and wife knew that they were joined together in the Name of Jesus to experience His presence and power in united power (1 Peter); if friends believed what mighty help two or three praying in concert could give each other; if in every prayer meeting the coming together in the Name, the faith in the Presence, and the expectation of the answer, stood in the foreground;…O who can say what blessing might come to, and through, those who thus agreed to prove God in the fulfillment of His promise.”
