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 NLT
James is helping the early church understand the power of confession and the healing that it brings. He reminds them of how much power that prayer has the results that it produces.
Most of us struggle with a hidden addiction or unhealthy dependency. We know that we want to be free from what’s destroying us inside but can’t seem to shake it. We need to remember that we are stronger together. As difficult as it may be, find the right person to confess your struggle with and ask them to pray with you about it. This is where healing and results begin.
God, help each person who reads this devotion today be brave enough to confess their struggle to the right person. Help this act of bravery bring about healing in their life. Amen.
