Look at what the Bible says about prayer…

“Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it—the Lord is his name: Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known. Jeremiah 33:2-3

Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” Mark 11:23-25

And he said to them, “Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves, for a friend of mine has arrived on a journey, and I have nothing to set before him’; and he will answer from within, ‘Do not bother me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed. I cannot get up and give you anything’? I tell you, though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his impudence he will rise and give him whatever he needs. And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” Luke 11:2-13

Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. John 14:13-14

If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. John 15:7

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, Ephesians 6:11-18

do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6

I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling; 1 Timothy 2:8

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:15-16

You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. James 4:3

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. James 5:16

And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him. 1 John 5:14-15

Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; and listen to the cry of my supplications. Psalm 86:6

Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. Philippians 4:6

Be earnest and unwearied and steadfast in your prayer [life], being [both] alert and intent in [your praying] with thanksgiving. Colossians 4:2

Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me in my distress; have mercy on me, and hear my prayer. Psalm 4:1 (NKJV)

The Lord has heard my supplication; the Lord receives my prayer. Psalm 6:9

Seek the LORD while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Isaiah 55:6 (NKJV)

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8 (NKJV)

All of you must keep awake (give strict attention, be cautious and active) and watch and pray, that you may not come into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matthew 26:41

And whatever you ask for in prayer, having faith and [really] believing, you will receive. Matthew 21:22

For this [forgiveness] let everyone who is godly pray–pray to You in a time when You may be found; surely when the great waters [of trial] overflow, they shall not reach [the spirit in] him. Psalm 32:6

Is anyone among you afflicted (ill-treated, suffering evil)? He should pray. Is anyone glad at heart? He should sing praise [to God]. James 5:13

Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. James 5:16

Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man. Luke 21:36 (NKJV)

Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer offered in this place. 2 Chronicles 7:15

The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination, hateful and exceedingly offensive to the Lord, but the prayer of the upright is His delight! Proverbs 15:8

The LORD is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous. Proverbs 15:29 (NKJV)

But certainly God has heard me; He has given heed to the voice of my prayer. Psalm 66:19

Blessed be God, Who has not rejected my prayer nor removed His mercy and loving-kindness from being [as it always is] with me. Psalm 66:20

Be earnest and unwearied and steadfast in your prayer [life], being [both] alert and intent in [your praying] with thanksgiving. Colossians 4:2

Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly] 1 Thessalonians 5:17

And it shall be that before they call I will answer; and while they are yet speaking I will hear. Isaiah 65:24

But I tell you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. Matthew 5:44

I desire therefore that in every place men should pray, without anger or quarreling or resentment or doubt [in their minds], lifting up holy hands. 1 Timothy 2:8

Evening and morning and at noon will I utter my complaint and moan and sigh, and He will hear my voice. Psalm 55:17

So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance. Romans 8:26

ALSO [Jesus] told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not to turn coward (faint, lose heart, and give up). Luke 18:1

For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it]. Mark 11:24

In return for my love they are my adversaries, but I resort to prayer. Psalm 109:4

Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).
Ephesians 6:18

“Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”. Matthew 18:19-20(NKJV)

Learn about the prayer of agreement…

Personal intercession is the mainstay of GOD’s earthly army; but in a great many of our prayer skirmishes and battles against the enemy, we must fight as an Armed Force.

Roman tacticians, in Paul’s day, developed a unique defensive tactic called the testudo, or tortoise. In this maneuver each soldier overlapped their shields around their group and above their heads forming a ‘tortoise’ shell of protection. (Could this have been the forerunner of the armored vehicle?) This is a strong illustration of what unified praying is all about.

In the Prayer of Agreement, or unified praying, two or more Prayer Warriors act and think as of one accord for whomever they are interceding for. The function of this type of praying is to enclose their prayer objective(s) in heavenly protective custody.

JESUS declared that where two or three were at in His name, not only would He be there, but what they asked for–in agreement–He would do. (Matthew 18:18-20).

And the Harper Study Bible (RSV, Zondervan 1979) on p.185, states the following in its notes for Leviticus 26:8 “In spiritual things the law which governs is not that of arithmetic progression but an accumulative effect as the numbers rise. Symbolically, five will chase one hundred, but one hundred will chase ten thousand. Especially in prayer may it be said that the power generated will be proportionately greater as more people pray. Thus the more of God’s people who… pray together the more significant will be the results.” Simply put: When 2 or more Prayer Warriors pray in agreement, the power generated is multiplied tenfold.

Another apt illustration of the Prayer of Agreement is found in Exodus 17:8-13. In this Biblical story, the children of Israel are faced with an enemy army much greater than they. Moses tells Joshua to choose his men and go fight the Amalekites (v.9). Then he, Aaron and Hur go to the topof a hill overlooking the battlefield. As the two armies clash, Moses raised the rod of GOD up above his head, and Israel began winning; but when he lowered the rod, Amalek began winning. So Aaron and Hur helped to hold Moses hands up when he became weary, in doing this they symbolized their ‘agreement’ of Moses actions.

This lesson was so important that GOD specifically instructed Moses to tell Joshua the whole story in detail. He wanted Joshua and the Israelites to remember that He is the source of all our victories. Also, another important thing we need, we must, remember is in this life we will become weary at times. Just as Moses did; he knew that the upheld rod of GOD was the key to victory, but he couldn’t do it on his own.Charles Stanley, in his book Handle With Prayer p.105, says:

“God sent Moses up to that hill knowing he couldn’t hold the rod up long by himself. It was no accident that Aaron and Hur went along. They gave Moses the support he needed.”

One soldier in this world’s Armed Forces may be able to effectively take out several of his enemies, because of his or her training; but two or more can bring devastation and death through their training and high tech firepower. If one Prayer Warrior has all the power of heaven behind him or her, what will it be like to have two, or three, or more fighting in agreement for the same victory?

It is fully possible to pray for situations, etc.even though there are a few miles, or thousands of miles, between Prayer Warriors and your only communication is via email, phone or snail-mail. It is more likely though, that there are two or more people in your church who would gladly join you in your intercessions. Whichever way, both are highly effective.

Wesley Duewel gives several steps on how to agree in prayer in his book Touch the World Through Prayer, pp.252-3:

  1. Agree that God has given you a need for which to pray.
  2. Agree to present this need in mutual concern and faith.
  3. Agree that your supreme motivation is the glory of God.
  4. Agree, though the expressions are different you’re in one accord.
  5. Agree to claim one or more of God’s promises.
  6. Agree to persist until the answer comes.
  7. Agree to pray together at a set time every day.
  8. Agree to give God all the glory when the answer comes.
