Need a change in your finances? Here’s what the power of agreement in finances can do in your life.
“If two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven” (Matthew 18:19, NKJV).
Did you know there's one area of God's BLESSING in your life that involves other people? That’s the unique thing about the material world—you can’t function there by yourself. You can receive healing between just you and Jesus. But you can’t buy something or sell something by yourself. Finances involve an exchange of some kind with other people. You can’t give by yourself, and you can’t receive by yourself.
So, when you’re looking to operate in financial blessing and dominion, a big part of the system of God’s financial kingdom is coming into agreement with others. When that happens, God is there to carry out that agreement—to back you in binding satan and shutting down his operation where you are concerned.
The prayer of agreement is one of the most powerful tools God has given us as believers. It is the prayer that Jesus Himself guaranteed would bring results every time. Believers agreeing together in the Holy Spirit are a powerful, unstoppable force.
What is an agreement?
A biblical agreement is based on the Word of God. Some people think that as long as you just have more than one person in a room praying, you have agreement. But that’s not true agreement. If you want to get into true biblical agreement with someone or even a group of people, all parties must be standing on the Word of the living God. It is central to the prayer.
How do you pray in agreement?
- Establish your heart on God’s Word. The prayer of agreement should be based on the Word. Find scriptures that cover your request. That Word from God is the faith foundation of your prayer. Now you are agreeing on something God has already said. If you’re praying with religious tradition or without standing on the Word of God in total and complete faith, you’re wasting your time, and you won’t achieve what you’re after. That means, when you walk away, if you aren’t certain it’s done, you didn’t agree—you’re just hoping it comes to pass.
- Fix your mind on the Word. Once the agreement is settled, continue to minister to your faith and feed your faith on the foundation of that agreement. The scriptures you stood on—those that guarantee the answer—should be the focus of your attention. The devil will come and mess with your mind to get you to doubt what you agreed upon, but don’t give in!
- Keep out of fear and worry. If you walk away from your prayer of agreement and fall into fear or worry, you’re already losing the battle. Stay prepared all the time. Don’t wait for an emergency to begin feeding your faith. If you do that, you’ll need to find someone else who can help you, because you won’t always have the faith strength to get you through.
- Act as if it’s done. This is where many people miss it. You have to act on your faith. Don’t leave your prayer closet and start wringing your hands and speaking fear and unbelief. Speak the desired end result. Speak what you just agreed on. Refuse to act like that issue is a problem anymore. When someone asks you about it, say: “Glory to God, that issue is handled.”
Scriptures for Financial Prosperity
When you come into agreement with others, or ask someone to stand in agreement with you, make sure to stand on the Word and keep the focus of your attention fixed there. Keep out of fear and worry, and then act as if it has already come to pass. There are many scriptures to stand on for financial prosperity. Here are a few to get you started:

Jeremiah 17:7-8: “Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit” (NLT).
Proverbs 3:9-10: “Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine” (NKJV).
God’s Word is always the answer to your prayer. Always. If you’re facing a financial trial today, find someone who is filled with faith and believes the Word of God to come into agreement with you. Your miracle is one agreement away from manifestation!
