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

Your prayer life…is it good, bad, or non-existent?  What about the quality and quantity of your time spent in prayer?  We all would admit that our prayer life could be better.  For most of our prayers are quick apathetic words thrown at God, lacking energy and even the confidence that they’ll even be answered.  So how can we change our weak and impotent prayers into the prayers spoken about in this verse?  James tells us that as Believers our prayers are capable of producing great results, and through God, He is able to accomplish incredible feats because of our prayers.   So think of it this way…our prayers start God (and all of creation He has at His disposal) moving.  Our simple prayers trigger God’s all powerful and magnificent response… opening the way for Him to do miraculous things on our behalf.  That puts a completely different spin on our prayers, right?  For if we could only take hold of and comprehend just how powerful and effective our prayers were…we could change the world for Christ.
