The Power of Prayer

James 5:13~18

  13 Are any of you suffering hardships?  You should pray.  Are any of you happy?  You should sing praises.  

14  Are any of you sick?  You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord.  

15  Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well.  And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.  

16  Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.  

17  Elijah was as human as as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years!  

18  Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops. 

What do you have that you need to pray about?  Give it to Him today, and He will make your burden light.

Love to all of you, in the sweet Name of Jesus.

Dear Anonymous, I don't think any of us can quite visualize this word from God. We have to have faith that He is there like His word tells us~we have to trust that He is every bit as alive and you and as me!

1 Corinthians 2:9 says this: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him."

It's all about faith.

I hope God blesses you today.

I have so many things rolling around in my brain, that I thought I'd just sit here and write a blog post instead of doing all those thin...
