For One Another

2 10 2013




So then, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you will be healed. The prayer of a good person has a powerful effect. James 5:16 GNT



Prayer is a powerful way to show our love and concern about each other. Our passage is a reminder to pray for one another. When situations arise, we may be quick to discuss it, talk about it and talk some more before we take it to the Father. When our first response is prayer, it allows us to connect with God, who is all powerful. We may know about one who is sick, another one who is mourning or yet others who are discouraged. Whatever the issue, we can pray to God for His blessings of peace, healing and love to be manifested in each situation. We can pray for His perfect will and His direction to guide our steps. With thanksgiving in our hearts, we can lift each other and our situations up to God in prayer. He is faithful to hear our prayer and to bless our situations in ways that we can’t imagine when we are submitted to His will.

Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. Elijah, for instance, human just like us, prayed hard that it wouldn’t rain, and it didn’t—not a drop for three and a half years. Then he prayed that it would rain, and it did. The showers came and everything started growing again. James 5:16-18 MSG
