Mt 18:20 In my name. As followers of Christ.

If there is strength in numbers, why not "where two or more are gathered". No this quote has a deeper meaning.

How do we people who are in need use this chapter?

I feel so much inspired in this context, but what of my personal prayers?

First of all, we must believe He is who He says He is and can do wonders, miracles if you will. Only those of us who have that belief will be able to sit at his counsel and grow spiritually. I believe, it was John chapter 6, that Jesus announced Himself as the Bread of Life which caused many to leave due to unbelief. When we gather together we are doing it for whatever in-feeling learning, healing, etc. we can get from Him. But we must not be halfhearted when we do not get what we want. GOD knows our heart (as to what we can handle). He talked about the child prior to this statement.

Though we are saved as individuals but Matthew 18:18-20 means there is strength in numbers and togetherness.

I think that we should meditate on what Lord Jesus says here in Matthew 18:20 and see what the Holy Spirit may be saying to us all.

I think a lot of people take this text out of context. It is often quoted when there are just a few in a service or bible study. But Jesus is in the midst if I were by my self in His name. Jesus had a reason for what He said. Read the text that lead up to that statement. Although it is true that Jesus is in the midst regardless of the size of the gathering, it seems the verse is only used when there are only a few, which I believe is not the only time to use the verse.
