Confess and PRAY!

James 5:16 (NKJV)  Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

Are you in need of a physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual healing? Share it with a trusted prayer partner. We are supposed to bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2), so let’s start sharing the load with our fellow Christian brothers and sisters. We all know that no one is perfect, so stop pretending that you have it all together sometimes.
Confess, so we can pray, and just maybe you will get your mind off of your problem long enough to pray for mine. If we are praying for one another, we won’t have time to hate each other. It’s really hard to backstab someone you’re earnestly praying for. If the body of Christ would operate as Jesus Christ intended, we would grow together and develop a closer sense of community.

We can do so much more together. We can impact the world in greater ways together. We can send more demons to flight together. We can be so much more effective in the work of the Kingdom together. There is definitely strength in numbers. The devil is picking us apart one by one, one leader at a time, one church at a time. If we would confess and pray for one another, we would have more solidarity and oneness of purpose, no matter what the gates of hell throw at us.
