Promise to answer prayers when two of more pray together - see Matthew 18: 19. 20

From the writings of Ellen G. White
For the pardon of sin, for the Holy Spirit, for a Christlike temper, for wisdom and strength to do His work, for any gift he has promised, we may ask; then we are to believe that we receive, and return thanks to God that we have received. {Education, page 258.1}
We need look for no outward evidence of the blessing. The gift is in the promise, and we may go about our work assured that what God has promised He is able to perform, and that the gift, which we already possess, will be realized when we need it most. {Education, page 258.2}
To live thus by the word of God means the surrender to Him of the whole life. There will be felt a continual sense of need and dependence, a drawing out of the heart after God. Prayer is a  necessity; for it is the life of the soul. Family prayer, public prayer, have their place; but it is secret communion with God that sustains the soul life. {Ed 258.3}
Prayer and faith are closely allied, and they need to be studied together. In the prayer of faith there is a divine science; it is a science that everyone who would make his lifework a success must  understand. Christ says, "What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." Mark 11:24. He makes it plain that our asking must be according to God's will; we must ask for the things that he has promised, and whatever we receive must be used in doing His will. The conditions met, the promise is unequivocal.  {Ed 257.7}
God stands back of every promise He has made. With your Bible in your hands say, I have done as Thou hast said. I present Thy promise  "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you." {COL 147.2}
