READ:  James 5:17-18

UNDERSTAND: get a deeper understanding of the key words

 

  1. Begin by underlining nouns with a single line, double underline verbs, and circle descriptive words.

  2. Make a list of the keys words/phrases and think about what they mean.

 

Snapshot: In this passage James refers back to an Old Testament prophet named Elijah. The events James is referring to can be found in 1 Kings 17-18. The point James is making is found in James 5:16, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” Elijah was a righteous man and his prayers were certainly powerful.

What about Elijah made him a righteous man?

 

Why is righteousness vital to our prayer life?

 

When have you seen God answer your prayers in a powerful way?

 

PRAY:  Ask God to help you develop a more powerful prayer life.
