Prayer helps to align us with God’s will and purpose. It activates the power of God. It is intended to be the language that gets through to God. This Sunday Pastor Mark will take us through what James was the earthly brother of Jesus. After he had come to faith in Christ, he was lovingly known as, “Camel knees” because he spent so much time on his knees in prayer. He found the power of God through spending time with God in prayer. If there is anyone who can teach us about how to connect with God, it is “camel knees” himself. Let James teach us how to change things in our life through prayer.
We encounter hard times periodically throughout our lives. In 2020 we have all been, to one degree or another, in a mode of constant crisis management. Interestingly, God led us to go through the Book of James together this year. It has been uncanny how this little book has so blessed and guided our lives through the year of COVID. We have reached the last series which involves the last chapter in James, chapter 5. This chapter is all about Rising Above Hard Times. James addresses the issues of injustice, enduring when the bad won’t stop, supernatural healing, prayer and helping to rescue someone we love who has fallen by the wayside. How do we rise above the hard times we experience? Our Father will teach through His Word as we explore the final chapter of the amazingly practical Book of James.
