Is anyone among you in trouble?
‘Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. ‘
All the glory, praises and honor be to the Heavenly Father in Jesus’ precious name!
The subject verse from the Epistle of James teaches us the most important part of a Christian life. It is about the prayer of faith that shall always be on our lips. Moreover, this shall be done in all the situations and circumstances. As the verse says, if there are any who are in trouble, they should pray. Prayer is the first thing considered by the author both in times of trouble and happiness. This shows how important it is to us to pray to the Almighty God. Singing praises in happiness glorifies the Almighty God.
Call upon the Lord
and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”Psalm 50:15 ESV
Our dependency matters our lives. To whom do we turn to both in times of hardships and as well as in good times? The wise turn to the Lord our God at all the times. As the above verse says, God is ready to deliver us from our troubles. For the Living God delivers us for He is righteous God. For He hears our prayers and supplications. And the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective says the scriptures. Moreover, it is our duty to glorify the Omnipotent God by singing praises in honor and reverence.
‘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 NIV
Therefore, let us be always thankful in our prayers and supplications to the Almighty God. Let us exalt His name through our deeds. In Jesus’ precious and matchless do everything for the glory of the Holy Father. Yes, in Jesus name alone. Amen.
