“The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].” James 5:16b AMPC
That word, earnest is defined as serious and zealous in intention, purpose, or effort; showing depth or sincerity of feeling; seriously important, demanding or receiving serious attention.
Did you also know that if you are a believer, you are made righteous not by what you do, but because of what Christ did. You are in right standing with God because of the sacrifice Jesus made for you.
So I like to say it like this; Because I’m in right standing with my Father, when I pray intentional prayers with passion and zeal, I know my prayers are powerful and effective. Because the Spirit of God lives within me, He bears witness and intensifies the words that come out of my mouth and causes those things that I say to come to pass.
I can only pray passionately when I believe in what I’m praying. I believe the Word of God, so when I pray the Word, I know it’s still as alive and powerful as when it was first spoken. I can count on God to keep His Word because He cannot and will not ever lie.
Never think for a moment God doesn’t listen to the cries of His people. He hears & answers.
Your prayers are heard! Don’t quit now!!!
