James 5:16–Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
We must be willing to share with others. We must share our struggles as well as our successes. As we are open and able to walk this life in Christ together, we will be able to pray and lift up one another. We are the most effective in our prayers as we are lifting up and praying for one another. Are we willing to lift up and share with our fellow believers so that we can pray for them.
Father, I lift up my brothers and sisters. I pray that You will help me to share and to lift up those who I walk side by side with every day. I pray that You will give me the courage to do exactly what You tell me to do in this verse.
