“Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” (James 5:16 from the NLT of the Holy Bible)
Where would we be without the godly mentors in our lives? Between now and tomorrow it is likely that I will fall short in some category of my life. Only God knows how many senseless things I will do within the next year! I am so thankful to have people in my life who I know are praying for me on a daily basis. It is amazing the difference it makes knowing that you are held accountable not only to God, but to people. I would not suggest blabbing your problems to everyone you know. Start with one. Find a prayer warrior who will sincerely take your needs to Him. Knowing that someone is genuinely there for you as you grow closer to God has the power to change your life.
Prayer: Thank you, God, for the spiritual leaders you have placed in my life. Only You know where I would be today had I not been under such incredible people. I pray that those reading this devotion would be willing to open up to a godly person in their lives. Use me today, God, to help somebody going through a trial. Grant me the wisdom I need and give me the words to say. In Jesus name, amen.
