Jesus gives us an amazing promise when he says that if we come together and pray His purpose, plan and will, our requests will be honored! Jesus’ promise has enormous implications not just for marriage but for entire families as well.

The Bible emphasizes that we should pray together. Matthew wants us to know that praying together is highly valued and honored by God: your prayers will be answered:

“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.” (Matt 18:19)
