HOW TO PRAY ABOUT YOUR PROBLEMS
Developing A Faith That Works - Part 15 of 15
James 5:13-20
Rick Warren
v. 16 "The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective."
The word "prayer" is mentioned
seven times in this passage.
That's what it's about.
Prayer.
James had a reputation for being a man of
prayer.
His nickname was James, the Camel Knees, because he had such big knots on his knees from
spending hours and hours in prayer.
There is tremendous power in prayer.
Prayer is the greatest
privilege of the Christian life, being able to talk to God, and it's the greatest power in the Christian life.
What prayer can do is what God can do.
Anything that God can do can be done through prayer.
Jesus
said, "The things that I do, you'll do also even greater works."
How do you do greater works than
Jesus?
Jesus said in the verse underneath that, “It's by prayer”.
Anything you ask, you pray for.
It's
our greatest responsibility.
It's probably our greatest failure in the Christian life.
We talk a lot about
prayer, we study about prayer.
A lot of us are not too satisfied with our prayer life.
Tonight we're going
to look at “When should I pray”, “What kind of person can pray”, and “How can I pray more
effectively”.
WHEN SHOULD I PRAY?
James, in this passage, mentions there are three specific times when I really need to pray.
1.
When I am hurting emotionally
v. 13 "Is any one of you in trouble?
He should pray."
The word in Greek literally means "to suffer
misfortune, to be in distress" to be under stress, under tension.
In Timothy it's translated "hardships."
He's talking about internal distress caused by external circumstances.
It may be a financial crisis, a
relational crisis, something on the outside, your heart is breaking, tension is at an all time high, when life
gets hard.
David said in Psalm 18:4, "In my distress I call unto the Lord."
He's talking about this in
light of what we just covered.
v. 12 "Above all, my brothers, do not swear".
When you're under
tension, that's when you're tempted to swear.
