All Things Biblical addresses the almost mythical mantra of, Matthew 18:19-20, “if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”
Does this passage teach:
- That if two or more Christians agree in prayer on something that the Lord is obliged or certainly more likely to do/provide it?
- That there is some sort of threshold of the number of people that add power to prayer?
- That if two or more Christians gather, that is an especially spiritually sanctioned meeting?
- That the prayer of one child of God is less effective than that of two or three in agreement?
