James 5:16-18 -- The Effective Prayer of a Righteous Person

HIS WORDS

Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months. Then he prayed again, and the sky poured rain.


MY WORDS

Make it a regular thing to confess your sins to each and other and to pray for each other so that we can all live whole and healed. The prayer of a person who lives right with God is something powerful and with wonderful results. Elijah was a righteous man, but a human one, like us, who prayed with all his heart that it would not rain, and it did not rain for 3 1/2 years! Then he prayed again, and it rained after that long drought.

I WILL

Pray for ___________ ; that this person would be fully healed physically, spiritually, and emotionally.
