Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective - James 5:16
Fact: We are all broken. So, in everything we do, put God first. Indeed, the Author of life specializes in fixing our brokenness. Give our trauma’s, worries, fears, addictions, unlove, unforgiveness, and sins to God with a contrite heart and do not take them back. Many of us that face traumas have pre-existing wounds of the soul: guilt, grief, abandonment, and abuse. In fact, 90% of all physical, emotional, and mental problems come from wounds of the spirit- the spirit is Love, and Love is what connects all that is good. There are no pills for this, we must do the tough work of being loving and forgiving of self and others.
When we do so, we move our relationship with God from our head into our heart where it belongs. We abandon those thoughts, feelings, and emotions, unlove and unforgiveness that sabotage our relationships and healing. Darkness disappears when we turn the light on and fill our cup with the fruits of the spirit.
When appropriate, we need to get right with the Lord and each other. “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective” (James 5:16).
Prayer is the best medicine!
