16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
We are called to confess our sins one to another and to pray for one another. We should confide in our brothers and sisters in Christ that we can trust and who will faithfully pray for us. When we are struggling in an area it is prayer that will enable us to over come. When we pray one for another the power of God is released into a situation and the will of God is accomplished.
We are righteous because the blood of Jesus covers us. The moment we place our faith and trust in Jesus, His blood is applied to our lives and we are declared righteous. When we pray faithfully before the Lord on a daily basis our prayers are far more powerful then we even understand. God has called us to be a house of prayer. His glory is out poured at the prayers of His people.
