The Prayers of the Righteous

ames 5:16 “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”We need to understand that it is God’s command and God’s desire for us to pray for each other.Confessing sin is something that one should exercise carefully; to a mature person and spiritually responsible person, so that there is not an embarrassment that comes from it but rather the healing that God planned from the beginning. God wants us to be healed from whatever caused the sin, or whatever sin caused the illness, or even the emotional illness which caused the sin. God wants us to be whole.It is clear in the scripture, that the prayer of a righteous person is very powerful. That righteous person is someone who is in right standing with God and in constant relationship with God. That is why we should always value these prayers one for another very strongly.At all times, we need to practice praying for each other as the body of Christ. It is a high form of ministry to be praying for each other, more than anything else. We often pursue ministry for selfish needs rather than for the Kingdom of God or for the love of the Lord.This is a good sign of ministry, if we are willing to pray for one another without any reward for ourselves but only because we care for God’s Kingdom.
