Prayer is vital in our lives as Christians as a means of communicating with God and every day we should be seeking to spend some time with God in this way. So over the coming weeks, as we begin a new period of restrictions in our lives as a result of the coronavirus, I will be offering a Bible verse or line of a well-known hymn for us to reflect upon individually before coming to God in prayer – and what better way to begin than this verse from James.
‘…the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.’ (James 5:16)
God loves to hear from us in prayer and listens to us. Prayer creates and nourishes that special bond that we have with God through His Son and enables us to grow and flourish in His love. As you come before Him today ask God to help you in your prayer life that you may draw closer to Him.
