Are We On The Same Page?

Can you agree on something with your spouse? Your best friend? Your parent? Your child?

Full agreement. Total capitulation.

“(A)men, I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” – Matthew 18:19-20

All we have to do is pray for the same thing and God will grant that for which we pray.

That’s it!

How cool is that?

All we have to do is agree.

How many times have you told someone you would pray for them? What are you praying for exactly? Do you tell them? Or do you simply tell them “I’ll pray for you.”

Nice, but…

Is it enough?

I hadn’t truly thought of it until this morning, reading and then listening to this Gospel passage.

Jesus is clear — very clear — when He tells His disciples “hey, want something? Pray about it with somebody else or a couple other people. Agree on what you’re praying for. You’ll get it! I’ll pray with you, right there with you. My Father will give it to you!”

Pretty cool.

No. Really cool.

When you pray, be specific. Want something? Be specific. Make sure it’s an honorable intention. Ask someone else to pray with you for exactly the same thing. Better yet, ask two people.

Be specific.

Try it.


Thanks for taking some of your precious time today to read my thoughts. My intention is to post a brief, daily meditation based on the readings from the day’s Catholic liturgy. I would appreciate your help and encouragement. This is something I’ve been called to do for some time. I’m finally embracing it. Father, forgive me for procrastinating. And for still not posting a meditation daily.

    Wasn’t that my birthday homily? Total agreement can be so hard and so amazingly fulfilling at the same time. Be Blessed.


  2. I agree, Renee. It’s so easy to insert ourselves into the prayer. What we think is best.

    What I think is best?!?

    It’s always (and only) Him.

    “Honorable intention”. Words to remember. You are helping us all to strengthen our relationship with God. Thanks :-)
