The biblical text which speaks of Jesus promising his presence with two or three gathered together is Matthew 18:20. “For where two or three are gathered together in my name , I am there among them” (NRSV).
For where two or three are gathered together unto my name, there am I in the midst of them. For where two or three are assembled in my name, there am I in the midst of them. For where there are two or three assembled in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
Jesus is explaining that if you have an issue with someone in the church… Talk to him (or her) privately about it. If he refuses to repent, grab two or three friends—people you trust—who will back you up when you talk to him a second time.
1 Corinthians 1:10 I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree , and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.
It was John 16:23, where Jesus tells the apostles “Amen Amen I say to you , whatever you ask from the Father, He will give it to you in My name ”.
It was Jesus’ custom—his regular practice—to go to church . The Message Bible puts it like this, “As he always did on the Sabbath, he went to the meeting place.” If Jesus made it a priority to meet together with other believers, shouldn’t we, as his followers, do so also?
“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
It has traditionally been attributed to St. Matthew the Evangelist , one of the 12 Apostles, described in the text as a tax collector (10:3). The Gospel According to Matthew was composed in Greek, probably sometime after 70 ce, with evident dependence on the earlier Gospel According to Mark.
Hebrews 10:25, KJV : ” Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together , as the manner of some is ; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”
It’s a common Bible verse that you’ve probably heard or even said many times — “When two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” We find it in Matthew 18 :20, and we (including me) often use this verse when we want to agree with someone in prayer.
Chapter 18 of the Gospel of Matthew contains the fourth of the five Discourses of Matthew , also called the Discourse on the Church. The discourse emphasizes the importance of humility and self-sacrifice as the high virtues within the anticipated community.
After seven years of being married the verse in the Bible from Amos 3:3 “How can two walk together unless they are agreed?” rings more true than ever. Who wants to walk through life together miserably? And a marriage where two walk separately is not marriage like God intended.
Prayer is a vital and necessary part of the Christian life. It is important to intentionally do it with other people so we can bear one another’s burdens and grow in spiritual strength.
Find one of God’s promises for your particular situation. Align your words with His. Then, speak aloud non-existent things as if they were already in existence and work toward them with joyful expectation. As you agree with God’s word, and speak the promise in faith, it can be done.
