James 5:16 “Pray for one another so that you might be healed. The prayer of a godly person is powerful. It makes things happen.”
The longer I live as a follower, the more I realize how great a difference prayer makes.
It changes everything.
When I was visiting David’s tomb last year in Israel, an orthodox Jew approached me. He asked me my name and then told me he felt compelled to pray a blessing for me. He placed his hand on my head then prayed in his language.
I still don’t know the exact words. But I do know I had been blessed. Afterward, my friends wanted to know what had happened.
“Why did he want to pray for you? He wasn’t praying over anyone else.”
Even now, I don’t know why. What I do know is that I will remember that he prayed a blessing over me for eternity.
Do not minimize the power created by the action of prayer.
Have a blessed day!
