Spiritual Power Tool: Prayer

Want to See Lives Changed 
or
Miracles to Happen;
Then Pray!
James 5:13-16;  
13 Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. 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.
I feel like a spoiled Daddy’s girl by my heavenly Father. I have been praying for miracles in people lives that I know for two reasons. One so that they may know that God is real and two so that they know that God loves them. He has answered my prayers for a friend living in another state struggling with kidney troubles. I can tell He has answered my prayer from her Facebook posts. I prayed with a dear family member before surgery and asked others to pray for her also. She let me know that the surgery went well. Yeah God! They may not have fully comprehended God’s love but I did. I am not the miracle worker I just pray to the One who is. I pray believing and knowing that He will answer.
There is a lot here in the passage above.

A righteous person is one who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ and because of what Christ has done has been made right before God. As believers our prayers are powerful and effective.
