Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 03/11/12

This week’s scripture is from James:

“Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.  Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”    (James 5:13-16)

Prayer is powerful, and the Lord is mighty. Let us not hold back, but in the power and the might of the Lord pray boldly, pray strong, pray in tongues with thanksgiving and supplication, for the Lord Jesus makes intercession for us with the Father, God Almighty. Pray in the name Jesus Christ, pray in the power of His blood, death, and resurrection. Pray for healing and there will be healing; pray against suffering and suffering will cease; pray against sins and they will be forgiven; pray for salvation and salvation will come. Pray against the darkness and the light of Christ will destroy the darkness. Pray the Word of God; pray in the Holy Spirit. Pray in the power of His righteousness.  Pray and keep praying.

May the Lord bless you to pray and may He make your prayers bold through Christ.
