Message: “Prayers That Heal the Sick and Alter the Weather” from J.D. Greear

Prayers That Heal the Sick and Alter the Weather

Is prayer actually effective? And if it is, should we still pray even if we have a less-than-robust faith? As we wrap up our series in James this week, Pastor J.D. sheds light on a crucial—and often misunderstood—passage about prayer from James 5. In the end, we can be encouraged that God does indeed hear the prayers of his children, and it is often through them that he chooses to accomplish his work on earth.

Scripture References: James 5:13-20

From Series: "The Book of James: The Gospel from the Outside In"

No other New Testament book is quite like James. Catchy, practical, and in your face, the book of James jumps straight into the nitty gritty of daily life. James takes the lofty doctrines of the gospel and brings them down to earth. You can’t read James without being confronted. James steps on your toes. At times, he punches you in the gut. More than anything, James wants you to do something with the gospel you’ve been given—to live it out. James could have referred to himself as Jesus’ brother. Instead, he calls himself “a servant of God.” And through his book, he’s calling us to do exactly that—to serve God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength.
