The prayer of the righteous

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         
         Confess your sins to one another,
                  and pray for one another,
                  so that you may be healed.
         The prayer of the righteous
                  is powerful and effective.

                           —James 5.16

Nothing softens our hearts like honesty.
Nothing is stronger
than people who are bare-hearted with each other
in humility and gentleness.

Nothing heals our hearts like forgiveness.
Nothing is wiser than people who pray
in humility and gentleness for those who struggle,
counting themselves among them.

Nothing is as powerful as the harmony of God.
Nothing is as effective as the asking for grace
of those who trust grace
for those who need it.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
