“Prayers that Avail Much!”
We need now, more than ever, prayers that avail much! God provided us with a Biblical guide, and we must unite together to see our nation turn from sin and back to our roots and Almighty God, our Father! We need the power of the prayers of others. Confession and intercession are the responsibilities of all Christians. When the prayers go forward in God’s pattern, it always involves first honoring God for who He is, repentance and forgiveness…and then a person praying according to the will of God will be, without a doubt, most effective.
We can confess our sins one to another so that we may pray more intelligently for each other never to gossip one to another. It is a prerequisite to being regularly clean and successful in our prayer life! Christians should pray for one another’s known sins. This passage does not give license to share publicly that which might do harm to innocent people, but it does require that Christians be open in areas of need for prayer. We are commanded not to judge (see Matthew 7:1), while at the same time we are to pray for the weaknesses of our fellow Christians.
