“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” -James 5:16

I love the above scripture because there is real power in it.  For some of you, you can’t imagine confessing your sins to another person.  Questions probably fill your head like, “What will they think of me?”, or “I can’t share that because they couldn’t possible understand.”  

The truth is, though, we have people we can confess our sins to: Jesus and each other. Although Lent is a personal time to really focus on battling those sins we may hold in secret, I do believe that choosing a fellow Christian to confess your sins to and have praying for you can be a powerful experience for not only you, but for them as well.

Chances are those same questions running through your head are the same questions they have.  We have Jesus and each other to help encourage and help us heal. After all, the prayer of a righteous person IS powerful and effective.

Let’s do life together.

 “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2
