God loves to hear us pray

James 5:16 says: “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

Here the Bible tells us that the prayer of a righteous man can change things. In a story related in the passage of scripture that follows this verse you can read about Elijah, who was a man of like passion such as you and I are. He was an ordinary man facing things in life – family issues, hardships, ups and downs, persecutions, lack, needs, fears, and shortcomings. And yet when he prayed, God moved and shut up the heavens for 3 ½ years. He then prayed again, and God opened the heavens with rain. This shows us that our prayer lives, because we are now the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, are able to touch Heaven and apprehend heavenly influence upon earthly things. Whether it is the call of the land to be changed, the call of the seasons to be changed, or whatever you need, you have the honour, because of righteousness, to be positioned with God to change earthly things.

God is listening to you!

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
