James 5:16–18 (ESV)
16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. 17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. 18 Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.
Prayer changes things. One of the oldest books in the New Testament – the book of James – attests to the power of prayer. The patriarchs and prophets of the Old Testament speak of prayers power. And, of course, Jesus himself, valued personal time in conversation with His heavenly Father. The blessings of prayer are yours as well. In this sermon, Pastor Frusti leads us in considering the blessing we have in the gift of prayer.
Pastor Frusti has been serving at Trinity since 2008. He enjoys teaching the Word of God and challenging God's people to daily be a blessing in the lives of others.
