Prayer of the Righteous

The prayer of a righteous man prayed when a certain, very big power. - James 5:16 b

Does your prayer is often not getting an answer? The Book of James teaches about the power of prayer. There are three requirements to be able to pray effectively.

1. The prayer of the righteous.

Effective prayer is a prayer offered by the righteous. Who is righteous? The Bible teaches, called the righteous are those who are "justified by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ" (Romans 3:26, 5:1). The righteous are those who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior so that they are justified. They are not ever make mistakes, but they are justified by believing in the Lord Jesus. Are you one of those right?

2. With Sure prayed.

Effective prayer comes from the conviction. How can we pray with confidence? First, the belief arose because the prayer of faith. And because faith comes by hearing the Word of Christ (Romans 10:17), then pray with confidence can occur because there is God's Word the basis that we hold. Get used to pray with God's promise to our prayer requests are. Second, confidence may arise because there is no accusation in our hearts. That is why, James 5:16 a teaching for us confess our sins to each other before pray for each other. Sincere confession, will eliminate the charge in our hearts. Do you have enough faith to raise your prayer? If not, investigate the Word of God. Seek and then hold the promise in your prayers! After that, find out your heart. Is there a sin to be dealt with? Are there any mistakes that need to be recognized?

3. Perseverance.
James 5:17 gives the example of Elijah who prayed earnestly. Earnestness in prayer involves perseverance. Elijah prayed earnestly, prayed seven times before it appears clouds of palms that produce rain. Are you quite diligent in prayer?

If ye abide in me and my words abide in you, ask whatever you want, and you will receive - John 15:7
