What is your biggest worry? Is there a problem in your life you cannot solve? Are you and your family facing a problem today that you cannot resolve?
KEEP PRAYING! Don’t give up! Don’t grow weary and stop praying, just KEEP PRAYING!
James 5:16 reads some new energy into our prayer life. The latter part of the verse reads:
“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
Whatever is our problem, concern or burden, we should pray. In today’s world, the church (God’s people) must be a people of prayer!
But Pastor, “I have prayed before.” “Nothing ever changes.” “I am about to give up!”
We can’t stop praying! We must keep praying! We must keep believing God’s Word and praying in faith!
The verse states that, “The effectual fervent prayer…” This means a prayer of passion and a prayer of power. EFFECTUAL prayer is the Greek word ENERGEO, showing a prayer that has the energy of the Holy Spirit living inside of you!
A prayer that is earnest and unwearied. A persistent prayer that knows that our God is alive and hears our prayers.
We need divine help with the problems of our lives. That help is found in prayer through Jesus Christ our Lord!
You are loved,
Pastor and Muzette
I like learning about greek words and what they mean. I didn’t know that Energeo meant effectual prayer. I will have to pay more attention in my baptist church services and have more effectual prayers. Thanks for sharing.
