When Women Agree in Prayer
Two elderly women on the island of Lewis began nightly prayer agreeing to pray for God to send a revival to their community. For months they prayed, and God revealed to them that Rev. Duncan Campbell would come to their area.
When they invited him, he declined, saying he was too busy. They replied, "You may say you will not come, but God says you are coming!"
He later came and God's awesome presence fell upon the village. The revival spread to other communities, lasted for four years, and became known as the amazing Hebrides revival.
When a friend called to share a heavy burden, I recalled reading in Touch the World Through Prayer by Wesley Duewel that some situations require the prayers of more than one person. That is why the Lord gave the special promise to those who agree in prayer (Matthew 18:19). We agreed to meet together weekly to pray about her concerns.
Will it matter that two women go into prayer battle together? If we meet God's conditions, we can claim His promise, "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not" (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV).
"Women received their dead raised to life..." (Hebrews 11:35). Surely it's significant that the recorded raising from the dead are predominantly for women. (1 Kings 17:17; 2 Kings 4:36; Luke 7:11; John 11; Acts 9:36)
A woman's strong natural affection added to her faith produces supernatural results. She receives her dead raised to life!
Dear Jesus, help us to believe together until we see the spiritually dead brought to life.
"If two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, together make a symphony) about--anything and everything--whatever they shall ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven" (Matthew 18:19 Amplified).
