“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.”
“When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I’ll be there.” MSG
I promise that when any two of you on earth agree about something you are praying for, my Father in heaven will do it for you. CEV
Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, make a symphony together) about whatever [anything and everything] they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven. For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I AM in the midst of them. Amp.
I have heard, read and quoted verse 20 soooo many times that the fire power in it has flickered out. Today, I showed up at the warehouse and Beth (the YFC secretary and friend) and I started talking about the meaning behind these verses. We read and listened to them with a fresh outlook….wow!
The main WOW is because of verse 19…I don’t know if I’ve ever really looked at that verse. I promise that when any two of you on earth agree about something you are praying for, my Father in heaven will do it for you.

Bill Backman, Rick & Connie Mikles, Burnard Scott, Beth Zecca, Kim Touchton, David Haupt, Ben Bridges, Greg and Sarah Anglen (and MANY others who are prayer warriors and encouragers)….these people are those that are in agreement for this project in Ybor City (way more than two), and are praying specifically for this thing to happen. So then we can all be sure [Impossible to doubt or dispute; certain. Confident, as of something awaited or expected.] that God will do this thing! God is doing it…He’s making a path…He’s preparing the way…He’s preparing each of us for what He has in store.
Yes, I’m on fire….going to the warehouse never fails to inspire and remind me of God’s promises. Dave and I walked around Ybor today and took pictures of the beauty and personality of 7th Avenue. That was inspiring…Oh we are antsy…but hopeful as the days go on that God will do His thang in and through Ybor City!
