Want to have effective prayers?
In these uncertain times, prayer is essential.
It is our greatest form of communication with a holy God, who has provided a way for us to not only worship Him but to know Him personally.
Through prayer, we discover the depths of God’s mercy and love for us. It is also where we confess our sin and receive His forgiveness.
“For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous”
The Bible tells us, “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective” (James 5:16). If being a righteous man or woman is the key to powerful and effective prayer, what are the characteristics of a righteous person?
A righteous person is a person who is in right standing with God.
A righteous person seeks to obey God and yield to the direction of the Holy Spirit; he or she wants to see God’s Truth and God’s will established on this earth.
