THE PEOPLE OF GOD: PRAYING FOR ONE ANOTHER - By Rev. Dr. Thomas D. Johnson, Sr.
Confess your trespasses to one another, and prayer for one another, that you may be healed. So reads James 5:16.
The People of God: Praying for one another is the theme adopted by our congregation during the mid-year church wide meeting. I was inspired to recommend this theme because I sincerely believe prayer to be the means by which so many of our problems will be resolved. This text in the Epistle of James is one of many admonitions found in scripture that call the people of God to prayer. I have no doubt this most congregations consider themselves to be praying churches. However, my observation has been that many of our prayers have become petitions for our own wants and needs with little concern the needs of others. read entire message >>
