Effective Fervent Prayer

May 18

“The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man
 James 5:16

The most important thing you can do in life is to intercede for the lost, the hopeless, those helplessly bound, the ones in rebellion and self-will. No amount of preaching at them will succeed but will in most cases turn them off. STOP that! Instead, ask the Lord to help you pray the “effective, fervent prayer” which alone can overcome the obstacles and move the heart. And keep praying. Don’t ever give up.

Always remember:
Nagging is powerful to turn the heart off.
Prayer is powerful to turn a heart around.

vs 19-20
“Brethren, if anyone among you
wanders from the truth,

and someone turns him back,
let him know that he who turns a sinner
from the error of his way

will save a soul from death
and cover a multitude of sins.”

How? By the effective fervent prayer of a righteous one.
