Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.  James 5:15-17

I love that my mother prays every day for her family, calling each one in prayer, name by name. What a blessing to have a praying mother and moreover a listening Heavenly Father who hears her prayers. God’s Word instructs us to pray for one another.  We can pray for God’s peace, strength, healing, and deliverance to be manifested in each other’s lives. I believe prayer has transformational power for our lives, our families and the situations we face.  We need His glory to be manifested in each one of His children.  As we pray, we can stand in faith for answered prayer trusting God in His continued faithfulness.  When we pray, He is faithful to hear our prayer and we are thankful.

For this reason we have not stopped praying for you since the day we heard about you. We ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through every kind of spiritual wisdom and insight. We ask this so that you will live the kind of lives that prove you belong to the Lord. Then you will want to please him in every way as you grow in producing every kind of good work by this knowledge about God. We ask him to strengthen you by his glorious might with all the power you need to patiently endure everything with joy. You will also thank the Father, who has made you able to share the light, which is what God’s people inherit.

Colossians 1:9-12
