The Power of Prayer

And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins … that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. 

~ James 5:15-16, ESV ~


In recovery, we come to a place where we are humbled by our struggles, our vulnerabilities, and our fears. We become aware of our greatest sickness that has grieved our own hearts, our own souls, and those around us. We come to a place of awakening to the reality of our need to seek out God through prayer.

Many of us are familiar with the concept of prayer. Some of us may have experienced disappointment when it came to praying to God. What we may have forgotten is that true prayer requires two things: Faith in God and His sovereign healing power and humility in confessing our own inadequacies, sins, and illnesses. Combining these two components, prayer becomes a powerful tool in recovery.

Through prayer, we are able to find strength to manage for today, and hope toward a better life tomorrow. It is not something we ought to make light of, or to utilize infrequently. Prayer is a daily communion with our Creator, Savior, and Healer.

Our very spiritual life will be in direct proportion to the quality of our prayer life. Because, prayer changes us. Instead of ruminating things in our own mind, we turn them over to God. Those worries over certain decisions, we seek God’s guidance and wisdom. Daily prayer is a constant means of sharing things we may believe are insignificant and those that are most significant in our lives. Our supreme and Sovereign God is listening.

~ Proverbs 12:11, ESV ~

Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread, but he who follows worthless pursuits lacks sense.
