Verse of the Day 10-13-22

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16

This verse give us an important aspect to healing: we must be accountable to one another. This means that we must be willing to confess our spiritual failures to other trustworthy Christians so that we can pray more effectively for each other. Sin in the church hinders prayer and holds back God’s healing power from being demonstrated among his people.

For those who are in a right relationship with God and who continually rely on him to do what is right, their prayers will:

  1. Bring them near to God (Hebrews 7:25)
  2. Open the way to a Spirit-filled life (Luke 11:13 and Acts 1:14)

  6. Help them overcome Satan (Daniel 10:12-13 and Ephesians 6:12-13 and 18)

  8. Enable them to receive spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 14:1)
  9. Bring them into closer companionship with God (Matthew 6:9; John 7:37 and John 14:16)
  10. Bring them grace, mercy and peace (Philippians 4:6-7 and Hebrews 4:16)
  11. Bring others who are spiritually lost into a relationship with Christ (James 5:20)
  12. Bring them the wisdom, revelation and knowledge of Christ (Ephesians 1:16-17)
  13. Bring them healing (James 5:20)
  14. Bring them rescue from trouble (Psalm 34:4-7 and Philippians 1:19)
  15. Honor God with praise and thanksgiving (Psalm 100:4)
  16. Make Christ’s presence more real to hem (Revelation 3:20)
  17. Ensure them of their final salvation and of Christ’s intercession (his pleading their case for them, see Hebrews 7:25).
