When Two Agree
Posted On May 22, 2001
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.
I remember hearing about my uncle, Levi Taliaferro, starting to attend a Baptist church some 35 years ago. I thought it was strange and my family thought it was strange. But even stranger was that they said my uncle had stopped drinking. I didn’t even know he had a drinking problem but was relieved to hear that it was apparently now under control.
Today I visited with my uncle, and he shared with me the rest of the story. After a church service he and my Aunt Bea went up to the front pew of the church where Bro. Jess Rowley and his wife sit down together and prayed with them. Levi said when he sat down, he wanted a drink and when he got up the desire to drink was gone and never came back.
Have a problem? There is nothing like having a little prayer meeting to change your life and solve your problems. Jesus says, “if two of you agree.” Get together with a friend, or your pastor, or someone and pray.
(2021 Update: The church that my Uncle became a member of was Fairview Baptist Church in Elk City, Oklahoma. It is the same church where I am now the pastor. My Uncle passed away soon after our visit.)
(Praying with others magnifies the power of those prayers.)
