The Prayer of the Righteous
Scripture: James 5:  Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
Observation: Am I a righteous man? Like Paul I don’t do what I should do, but do what I shouldn’t. In my heart I want to be righteous, but I always seem to come up short. However God continues to answer my prayers and is always with me.
Application: To strive to be the man God calls me to be, that righteous man. To pray in accordance to God’s will, to be there for others when they need me and to strive to be righteous.
Prayer: Dear Lord guide this servant of yours to be that righteous man that will glorify you. Open my heart and mind to do what is right and honoring to you. I love you Lord, guide me this day.
