Prayer for One Another (part 2)

This Sunday, in our study in the book of James; we are still at chapter 5, verses 16-18, working on our 2nd part of this 2-part message.  In these verses, James speaks of what God has been doing all along, which some have forgot; that God still answers prayer.  Now, in part 2, he gives an example from the Old Testament of a very popular, famous prophet that was very effective in answered prayer.  Elijah, only mentioned in a few chapters in the O.T. was an iconic figure during James day.  But James reminds his readers that he was a regular person; like everyone, anyone else.  But he persevered in prayer; he was effective in the power of prayer, and God still answered Elijah’s prayer.  How is your faithful prayer?  What a great resource we have: prayer, accountability with, and for others.  But are we doing it?  As this passage 16-18 teaches, call others to come pray for you and with you.  Get an accountability partner, that you may be helped, “healed” (spiritually) (v.16).

More on this Sunday morning…

See you Sunday,

Pastor Weaver
