Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

“Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16). Your prayers matter. The enemy will do everything he can to convince you that when you pray, it doesn’t do any good. But God hears our prayers; and when they are fervent, they make a difference. Your friends and family need your prayers. This is why Christians need community: you need people to pray for you, and others around you need you to pray for them! When we are not in community, we cannot pray for one another; but when we are in communities of prayer, we can change the world.


Father, I know my prayers make a difference! I won’t let Satan convince me otherwise. When I feel like my prayers don’t matter, I’m going to pray with more passion and intensity than ever!
