“The Third Great Awakening: A New Level of Extreme Victory!” John Mark Pool, Baton Rouge, LA This is a season of overwhelming victorious supernatural exploits! We are now bringing in the “Sons of Issachar” awareness of, “Knowing the seasons and epochs of God” as never before. A new fresh oil of discernment is being released…
John Mark Pool:
“Prayers that Avail Much!”
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:16 (emphasis added)
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? 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.
Also, we must pray for those in the world so that their hearts will be seasoned by God, to be drawn by the Holy Spirit to a point of confession of sin, and receive the Lord as their personal Savior. Is there not a cause? Prayer takes the cause from man’s plan and places it into the Holy Spirit’s function to draw all people unto the Father! Let us release the Father’s will, for the Holy Spirit’s action, through prayer. Now this is the effectiveness of God’s prayer patterns with His saints.
