Fervent “Boiling” Prayer
Bible Text: James 5:16-18 | Preacher: Pastor Steve Breedlove | Series: Prayer | We face two dangers whenever we talk about prayer. We can make prayer seem so difficult that only the “super-Christians” can pray effectively while the rest of us just muddle along. Sometimes the stories we tell about saints who spent hours on their knees crying out to God end up discouraging us because we’re busy and tired and the kids are wearing us out and our job is a hassle and life feels like a burden.
Or we can go to the opposite extreme and make prayer seem like texting a friend to meet you for dinner and a movie. That has the advantage of making you want to pray, but you can end up with a lightweight view of prayer. Instead of coming into God’s presence to talk to your Heavenly Father, you feel like you’re chatting with a friend who is checking his Instagram while you are talking with him.
We need to pray from the HEART with belief and proof from history that the Lord WILL answer, in His time, not from the head and be fearing if it was “good enough”! Pray a FERVENT BOILING type of prayer , with substance, belief, believing power in the blood, that HE WILL answer it!!! Go forward and PRAY!!!
