James 5:13-14

"Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises. Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord."

It's great to know that no matter what we are going through, God hears you. God hears your worries, doubts, struggles, and he also hears our praise and thankfulness. God also knows the importance of community in the church body. Prayer is not only a time for God to hear us, but it's an opportunity for believers to lift each other up in prayer and encouragement. 

Jesus remind me to that no matter what, good or bad, I can talk to you and that you are there with me! Give me the boldness to pray with other believers in my life to strengthen and encourage me. And give me opportunities to pray for others as well. Amen
