“And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective” (James 5:15-16 NIV).
“The prayer offered in faith” does not refer to the faith of the sick person, but to the faith of the people praying. God heals, faith doesn’t, and all prayers are subject to God’s will. But our prayers are part of God’s healing process. That is why sometimes God waits for our prayers of faith before intervening to heal a person.
Don’t miss your most powerful resource by faith in our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ through intensifying (greater in degree and strength) prayer. The results are often greater than you thought were possible.
Praying by faith as you believe in God’s character and promises changes lives, heals physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and restores relationships.
“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what es do not see” (Hebrews 11:1).
Forgiveness involves both attitudes and actions. Forgiveness may break a cycle of retaliation and lead to mutual reconciliation. Even if your enemy or offender never repents or ask for your forgiveness, forgiving him or her will free you of a heavy load of bitterness. Right actions lead to right feelings.
Satan dreads the thought of a generation of prayerful believers committed to reaching the world with the Gospel. God wants to set you free from anything that keeps you from fulfilling His will. Once you realize that, you’ll start experiencing intensifying prayer and believe God for the empowerment and resources to do it!
