Righteous = Effective Prayer, James 5:16, April 22, 2021

Praying Together 2

The effectual . . . prayer of a righteous man [and woman] availeth much. (James 5:16, KJV)

What do you think when you read that verse? For many of us the term "righteous" takes us out of the conversation, because if we know anything, we know that we are not "righteous." From there we devolve into thinking that because we are not righteous our prayers are "not" effectual and are therefore useless. So why pray?

Don't get sucked into that lie. In tonight's session I look at our righteousness in Christ and how we can live in a righteous manner (out of love for Jesus) that can be used for good in our prayers and for God's glory in our lives.

I pray that my offering at the Youtube link below will be a blessing and encouragement to you. God wants us to pray, to look to Him and to call upon His Name. May we draw near to Jesus and pray effectively for our friends, our loved ones and for God's hand in our own lives.
