One Last Word

READ
 

James 5:13-16 (NASB)

13 Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; 15 and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed.  

 

First Things First

When you are going through a painful situation, what do you do first?
James tells us the “First thing you should do” in all of life’s situations.

•    When you are suffering
“Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray.” 
o    Tell it to Jesus. 
o    Talk it over with Him. Do it often.
o     More often than you would talk to a friend. 
o    Do this first.

 

•    When you are cheerful 
“Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises.”
o    Praise and worship Him with psalms and spiritual songs.
o    Do this “first”.

 

•    When you are sick
14 Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; 15 and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up,”
o    Seek help in prayer from spiritual leadership. 
o    Pray and seek others to pray along with you.
o    Do this “first”.

 

•    When you have fallen in sin
“and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him.”
o    Seek God’s forgiveness. 
o    Share it with your spiritual leadership and pray over it.
o    You will experience an assurance of the forgiveness of sin.
o    Do this “first”.

•    When you have done all, pray for one another.
o    In praying for one other you will find your own deliverance.

(Job 42:10)
10 The LORD restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the LORD increased all that Job had twofold” 

DO NOT TAKE PRAYER MERELY AS SPEAKING A FEW WORDS TO GOD. PRAY WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART AND STRENGTH.

 

 


WORSHIP

He Never Sleeps

Our God is able.
He is mighty.
He is faithful.

And He never sleeps, He never slumbers.
He never tires of hearing our prayer.
When we are weak He becomes stronger.
So rest in His love and cast all of your cares on Him.

Do you feel that the Lord has forgotten your need.
Just remember that God is always working in ways you cannot see.

 

Our God is able.
He is mighty.
He is faithful.

•    When you've prayed every prayer that you know how to pray.
•    Just remember the Lord will hear and the answer is on it's way.
