Seize the Power
James 5:13-18 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise...
Prayer is a powerful tool, available to us at any time, for any situation. But sometimes, I forget that. I get wrapped up in whatever my situation is to the point that I don't take advantage of this powerful gift from God. So I was thankful for how James hit prayer so boldly in James 5:13-18, and especially these words from verse 16 "The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working."
