Red hot prayer avails much

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16). Translation, please? Red hot prayer works. Well, what is it? I can tell you what it’s not. It’s not fluffy… it’s not done “in passing.” It’s not an, “I’m just going to throw this out there and see what happens” prayer. Red hot prayer gets things done.

Red hot prayer doesn’t quit. It’s like the Energizer bunny… it just keeps going and going. It goes until it gets the job done.

Red hot prayer is full of the Word of God. It reminds God of His promises. Not like He forgets, but He wants us to know them and stand on them.

Red hot prayer is not desperately pleading with God. It is a prayer full of faith. It is a confident prayer, knowing that God is always faithful to His children.

If you’re finding yourself in a jam today, try a little red hot prayer.

    right on Juli…. Good reminder… I like to replace it with a righteous mom! Moms
    never stop praying for their children until they see the answer. God is always faithful just slower than we would like sometimes! What would life be without Gods word to stand on? Thank you Lord for your faithful word!!!
