DAY SEVENTEEN- COMMANDING THE MONTH OF DECEMBER: POWER THROUGH PRAYER
TOPIC: POWER THROUGH PRAYER
“ 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 5:16
The Gospel of John records the healing of a man who was born blind. After Jesus healed him, the religious leaders were angry because that was done on a Sabbath day. That led to some altercation between the leaders and the man. The leaders felt Jesus was a sinner, evidenced by Him breaking the Sabbath.
That generated a response from the recipient of the miracle in John 9:31 and is of interest to us – “Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him.”
In our text, James laid out conditions for answered prayers. Principally, there has to be good conscience obtainable through confession of sins to God and faults to people. God’s word says that he who covers his sins shall not prosper, but those who confess and forsake them shall obtain mercy. (See Proverbs 28:13).
The word “prosper” in this context may not just imply economic buoyancy; it is more sensible to see it in terms of our dealings with God. Our prayer life cannot prosper when we keep racking up faults. The only way to generate mighty power through prayer is to choose righteousness as a lifestyle.
FURTHER STUDY: ISAIAH 59:1-16
Holy Spirit, grant me a conscience that is free from guilt.
Father, forgive me. all my sins, in Jesus name.
Father, help me to be a great prayer warrior.
Lord, ignite me with the fire of the Holy Ghost.
Father, prosper my prayer life, in Jesus name.
