Where 2 or 3 are Gathered

“I also tell you this–if two of you agree down here on earth concerning anything you ask for, my Father in heaven will do it for you.  For where two or three gather together because they are mine, I will be right there among them.”  Matt. 18:19-20

These are the words of Jesus Himself, so we can believe them because He said them, or we can disbelieve Him.  There’s power in numbers here.  For one thing, when more than one agree in prayer, you can believe the petition isn’t silly, it isn’t overly selfish, and it isn’t something that goes against the teachings of Jesus.  A group checks its members.  But beyond that, He says something just astounding.  When we gather because we are His, He is there.  What would our prayers sound like if we remembered He is there?  What a reason to continue in fellowship with other believers!   What a reason not to say to ourselves “Oh I’ll just pray on my own and maybe watch church on television.”
