Pray in Faith
And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. — JAMES 5:15
Many people have been praying for years and are in the same boat they were in when they first began praying. Things haven’t changed at all. Some people have been praying for forty years, and it seems they’re no nearer to the answer now than when they first began praying.
I am not belittling prayer, because prayer is important. But prayer alone will not save your spirit or heal your body. Some people have been praying all their lives and are still not saved. I prayed for years. I can’t remember the first time I prayed. As far as I know, I’ve been praying all my life. I do not have any conscious moment of not praying. Yet in all those years of praying, I wasn’t saved. Now I know exactly when I did get saved, because it took more than prayer to save me. And it takes more than prayer to save you or heal you.
You see, some people imagine that if they can get enough people to pray, God will answer them. Many have prayed for years and received no answer. Well, there is a reason why. You see, if they had prayed in faith, they would have gotten an answer. And if they had prayed in faith, they wouldn’t have prayed so long!
Confession: When I pray, I pray in faith. I don’t pray in doubt. And I receive answers to my prayers.
