James 5:16 KJV
“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.”
This passage of scripture has so much revelation about how powerful our prayers can be.
Our prayers can heal and restore.
Let’s read it from the amplified.
“Therefore, confess your sins to one another (your false steps, your offenses), and pray for one another, that you may be healed and restored. The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much (when put into action and made effective by God-it is dynamic and can have tremendous power).
There’re 3 topics of discussion in this passage:
- The connection between confession and prayer
- Prayer produces healing
- The power of a righteous man’s prayer
We know that prayer is a way of communicating with God.
