How agreement can change your life

I don't know what the answer to everything is, but I do know one thing that is the appropriate response to everything that will bring answers and that is prayer.


I really believe that history belongs to people who pray. That's just one reason why I do it a lot! Another reason is, I need God so much. I rely on Him every second to get me through.

I'm really blessed to have someone pray for me every single day, and sometimes to have that person actually pray with me. That person is my sister, Shari. (If you've been reading this blog for a while you've probably already read something I've written about her.)

Shari is as passionate about prayer as I am, maybe more. I say probably more because her devotion to Christ pretty much amazes me but that's a whole other blog. Last night she called and we talked and then as we customarily do on every phone call, we ended with prayer. What a blessing is, to touch heaven and come together in agreement for God's hand to move in situations in our lives and in our world.

I had a challenging week this past week, and it shows no signs of stopping. What a blessing in the midst of it all to pray with someone who would stand with me in a powerful prayer of agreement. Circumstances have not changed, but I feel a lift in my spirit just knowing that I am not alone, in my prayer, or otherwise.

I encourage all of you who are reading today who are going through challenges...reach out and join together in prayer with at least one person.  There is power in agreement. Deuteronomy 32:30 says that one can chase a thousand but two can put ten thousand to flight.

Matthew 18:19 says that if two people agree on a thing in prayer, it will be done.

There is power in agreement! Thank God for what He has provided.
