Week 12. Tuesday
PRAY: Ask God to speak to you from His Word.
READ: James 5:15
15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.
UNDERSTAND: get a deeper understanding of the key words
Begin by underlining nouns with a single line, double underline verbs, and circle descriptive words.
Make a list of the keys words/phrases and think about what they mean.
Snapshot: In this passage James teaching believers that there is power in faith-filled prayer. It is not enough just to talk to God. We must also believe that God has the power to do what we are asking. It was common in the first century church see people healed as a result of prayer. Today we struggle to have that kind of faith in the power of prayer.
APPLY: What is this passage calling me to do?
Have you ever prayed for healing? What was the result?
What do you think “prayer offered in faith” means? How can you have more faith?
PRAY: Ask God to give you more faith as you learn to trust in Him more.
