“The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”
James 5:16b

  • Instructions for life…
  • What do you do if you’re in trouble?
  • What do you do if you are happy?
  • What do you do if you are sick?
  • What do you do if you have sinned?
  • You are righteous because Christ has made you righteous. Verse 16b tells us what the results of your prayers (in Christ’s name John 16:24)…write it down.
  • Your prayers are powerful and effective. He loves you and he wants to be an intimate part of your life…one of the ways you achieve that is by being in communication with Him – prayer. How does this change your thinking about how/when/why you pray?
  • Choose today to make God a part of your everyday life. Pray…

“But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.”
James 5:11

  • Is your “yes” a “yes” is your “no” a “no”?
  • Jesus tells us, “And whoever swears by heaven swears by the throne of God and by him who sits upon it. ” Matthew 23:22 Do you carelessly utter, “I swear to God.”  Think about what you are saying.
  • Is there something you need to change? Write a prayer asking God to change your heart and mouth to reflect His glory.
