rants: when one doesn’t count

I’ve heard Matthew 18:20 before and I’ve always wondered if one person (not at least two) isn’t enough.

http://bible.com/1/MAT18.20.KJV
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

(as delivered by the YouVersion application)

I prefer the verse right before.

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 18:19, KJV)

Yet I dislike (for lack of a better word) the verse right before, which is the cornerstone of the Catholic sacrament of Ordination — male priests being the ones to pardon sins on earth on behalf of God.

Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. (Matthew 18:18, KJV)

I know this is a weird way to analyze the Scriptures, but it makes sense to me, at least. What thing I wonder is if the latter counts as a devotional.
