Confession and Prayer

From Series: Faith That Works, Volume 4

James 5:16-18  (ID: 2624)

What a privilege that God includes Christians’ prayers for each other in His plans for the world! Alistair Begg warns us that as we hear confessions from fellow Christians, we must be careful to turn these matters into prayer instead of fuel for slander. These prayers illustrate our dependence on God and act as a valuable tool against the devil.


16Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.2
