The Prayer of Agreement (Matthew 18:19)
“Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.”
- The people involved in the prayer have to agree on the specific request
- To use the prayer of agreement, you must be sure that the person with whom you are agreeing is in line with what you are asking for.
The Prayer of Faith(Mark 11:24)
“‘Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.’”
- Also known as a “petition prayer,” between you and God, asking God for a particular outcome.
- When you pray (the moment that you pray) you must believe that you receive what you asked for.
- Prayer is answered in line with His Word.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
- Your faith is substance, it is something real, something tangible. It is evidence of things you cannot see.
The Prayer of Consecration & Dedication(Luke 22:41-42)
“And He [Jesus] was withdrawn from them [Peter, James and John] about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, saying, ‘Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.’”
- The Key aspect: “Nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.”
- Says you will allow God to set your direction or make your decisions.
The Prayer of Intercession(Ephesians 1:15)
“Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers.”
- Intercession means you are interceding, acting in prayer on behalf of someone else.
- Involves praying for others; It may be specific or a general prayer for someone.
