“Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord . . . The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.”
from James 5:13-20
Do you pray? And what do you say when you pray? What do you do? For some people, prayer is a time to unload the worries that feel too heavy to carry. It’s saying in desperation, “God, I can’t do this on my own anymore.” Sometimes it’s about saying sorry, or saying thank you. And sometimes it means not saying anything at all, but sitting in silence, or making a space feel sacred with candles and incense, or walking for miles at night, or dancing wildly, or finding your way through a prayer labyrinth. But however you pray, here’s the secret . . . shh . . . it actually matters. God is still speaking, and God is still listening. Prayer changes things. Join us on Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches prayer power.
