The book of James has much to say about deepening prayer.
I am cautious when combining these particular Bible verses in this way because they relate independently. Chapter 1 is about how we think. Chapter 4 is on material goods. Chapter 5’s subject matter is on remission of sins. Never-the-less. . .
I am asking you and those whom you share this with to pray the Corona virus outbreak out of existence.
1:5-6 Wisdom can be gained by asking in Faith
To me, ‘Wisdom’ that comes from God gives us hope and a backbone to seek God and His strength.
4:1-3 If you fail to ask you just might end up with nothing.
The simple truth is we want stuff without asking God first. And without asking God we turn to our own way of accomplishing our goals — by massaging our passions.
Thus, I am asking you and those whom you share this with to pray the Corona virus outbreak out of existence. Let it flatline. Let God do His work. Let us be aware that people are of much greater value than money.
As James 5:16 says the prayer of the Faithful can accomplish things with its great power.
