“The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.”

-James 5:16

It is amazing how time can fly by, and we seem to accomplish little, especially in the eternal sense. Perhaps there is a need to “devote yourselves to prayer”. We need to pray in the good and bad times, when facing afflictions, temptations, trials and disappointments, as well as when experiencing victory, success, joy and peace. We consistently need to pray for His strength for our witness and the spiritual growth and protection of others. May the following Scriptures speak to your heart. “Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face continually.” “Keep watching and praying, that you may not enter temptation.” “With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints.” “Pray without ceasing.” Be encouraged, because you can accomplish much!
