“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16).
Every day is not going to be a good day. That is just the way that life is. Just being part of society presents a challenge sometimes, and when you are a Christian trying to walk a righteous path, it makes life even more difficult. Trying to live, and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ in a wicked world can be an up hill battle, and many will tell us that we are foolish for believing in a God that we cannot see. Even though there are a number of days where you may feel like throwing in the towel. I know that your good days will always outnumber your bad days.
Prayer is an important, and powerful way to speak to our Heavenly Father. He knows what we go through, and he knows our pain. This is the reason that he gives us grace and new mercy each and every day. But we must humble ourselves before him, fall to our knees and thank him for just being who he is. We must thank him for the lives that we have, in order to live the lives that we want. Then as we pray for what we want and need, we must believe that our God will do it. The Lord doesn't even require you to have a whole lot of faith. If you have faith the size of a mustard seed he'll work in your favor. I have prayed on many occasions, stepped out on faith and watched God work wonders for my family and me. There were even some times when I had doubts, and have even been a little discouraged. But, through it all I held on to a little bit of faith and The Lord carried me through. If it works for me, it will work for you, through the power of prayer.
