Prayer Is The Work

"...pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much." James 5:16

What is prayer? Prayer is merely a person speaking to God about what God has already thought of. Clyde Cranford explained, "The prayer that starts in heaven gets back to heaven." This is the effective prayer that God answers. We are commanded to pray for each other in order for healing to occur, and God says that prayer will be answered as we draw close to Him. Scripture says that we are righteous because Jesus is, and that our prayer is effective because He thought of it.

What does it mean to pray what God desires? How can you pray more effectively for those around you?

Selfishness - The Air We Breathe

"Do nothing from selfishness, or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves." Philippians 2:3

Maybe you have heard the popular phrase, "If you' re not first, you' re last." Unfortunately, selfishness permeates many cultures, and has absolutely invaded the western attitude and mindset. This attitude, however, is completely unbiblical. Can you imagine what would have happen if Jesus had come to this earth, and as He grew up in His humanity, never considered another soul? What if He had lived life on this earth thinking only of Himself, not willing to share or sacrifice for the sake of others? As Jesus followers, we are encouraged and instructed to honor others by considering them more important than ourselves.

Today, how can you show someone that they are more important than you?
