THE
EFFECTUAL FERVENT PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILETH MUCH

You can
change hopeless situations (James 5:16)

Apostle
James lets us know in the scripture above the kind of prayer that changes
things: it is the “effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man.” The Amplified
version renders it beautifully: “The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a
righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].
Someone may say “O, I now know why my prayers have not been producing results;
it’s because I’m not righteous!” well, the question is, are you born again? If
you’re born again then you’re righteous, which means you can change hopeless
situation through prayer.

When God
told King Hezekiah he was going to die (2 Kings 20:1), the Bible says “He
turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the Lord” (2 kings 20:2). He
prayed earnestly and the Lord said: “I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy
tears: behold, I will heal thee….And I will add unto thy days fifteen years (2
Kings 20: 5-6). Miracles happen when we pray the right kind of prayers.

The prayer
that works, the kind of prayer that changes hopeless situations is that which
is earnest, heartfelt and continued. This kind of prayer touches your emotions
and your soul. It’s serious business because you desire to see a definite
change. It’s direct in purpose; you’re praying fervently with a deep feeling of
conviction. You tell yourself, “I’m not going to give up until I’ve seen the
change I desire.”

This was the
kind of prayer Elijah prayed. The Bible says he prayed earnestly that it should
not rain and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six
months. Then he prayed again, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth brought
forth her fruit (James 5:17-18). According to the Bible, Elijah was a man
subject to like passion as we are. In other words, you too can pray earnestly
and turn hopeless situations around.

PRAYER

Dear Heavenly Father! I’m grateful to
know that Your eyes are always upon me and Your ears are attentive to my prayers.
Therefore I’m bold and confident that I can change hopeless situations through
prayer. I rejoice because every time I bow my knees to pray concerning any
situation, I receive answers to my prayers, in the Name of Jesus Christ! Amen!
