James 5:176b says this:
16b The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. KJV
That sounds nice, but what does it REALLY mean? Let's look at the Amplified Bible:
16b The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. AMP
As a born again believer in Jesus of Nazareth, YOUR prayers WORK! You just have to DO IT! Amen! All the power of God in Heaven has been made available to us through the New Covenant which has been sealed in the Blood of Jesus! Learn the different types of prayer and then PRAY!!! HE is waiting on YOU to speak out in faith! This should encourage you!
Shalom in Him!
