Matthew 12:22-28; Luke 18:1
Scripture Text: James 3:5-12
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
How to Pray
There is no way possible that I could overstate the importance of prayer. And I pray that you will never underestimate the importance of prayer. What this world needs is what God can do.
What our city needs is what God can do.
What your home needs is what God can do.
What our church needs is what God can do..
What our government needs is what God can do.
Number one, THE CONFESSION WE MUST MAKE
I'll tell you something that most of us are not very good at. And that is confessing our faults. To err is human and to cover it up is too. We just, want to cover up our faults. We don't want anybody to know that we have any faults.
Number 2 THE COMMAND THAT WE SHOULD MIND.
What command of God should we mind that's found in verse sixteen? Well, look at it. Confess your faults one to another and pray one for another. This is a command and we had better mind that command.
Number 3 THE CONDITIONS WE SHOULD MEET.
James has been telling us in the book of James about the various conditions of prayer.
Number 4 THE CHARACTER THAT WE OUGHT TO MANIFEST
We can manifest the same character that Elijah had because he was a man of like passions as we are.
