 Confess your sins.

Confess your sins one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16

In this modern day world of Christianity, great swaths of Christendom pray for healings. The portion of Scripture that is quoted often is " Pray for one another that you might be healed, the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." Strange how the first portion of that Scripture tends to get overlooked or ignored. To confess one's sins to another requires a certain degree of brokenness and humility. It requires transparency before men and before God.

We come up with a thousand reasons why we do not see healings in the west, we are too reliant upon technology and pills and doctors, our need is not as great as someone in the third world who has none of these things. We have rationlized away the supernatural. All of these things are undoubtedly true to one degree or another, yet perhaps the central issue is more simple and more profound. Pride. The sin that existed before the world began.

"For this is what the high and exalted One says-- he who lives forever, whose name is holy: "I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite." (Isa 57:15)

If the Body of Christ wishes to walk in power, supernatural power, it begins with humilty and brokenness which is transparency before God and men. God dwells with such and their prayers availeth much...........bro Frank
