THE NEED TO PRAY

Prayer is essential to our daily lives. We need to be constant in our prayer life. That is to say, pray about everything. Our prayer life is essential to our relationship to God. When you have discovered the power of prayer, you have found the real power of life. The power of prayer rests in the hands of our God. Our God can hear and answer prayer. We are called upon to pray in season and out of season. We often pray when things are well, but when they are not so well; prayer is not an option, but a mandate. Today’s devotion in James 5:16 speaks of the need to pray:

 “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”

In this passage, we see the power of the prayer of faith to save the sick and raise him up. If any sins are committed, they will be forgiven. James makes it clear in verse sixteen that we are to pray for one another. He indicates that the fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. When you get a chance, read this entire chapter.  Make no mistake about it there is power in prayer. Today, take the time, today, to pray. In fact, pray every day. Do not stop praying. Pray.

James 5:16 (KJV)
