The Prayers of a Righteous Man

Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.

James 5:16

This morning, I’m running late on my blog due to an appointment. I’m sitting here, pecking at the keyboard, because my right hand is currently useless. The doctor says I have a swollen sheath over the tendons in my wrist, and it’s likely to not heal without surgery. This throws me behind on blogging and my current WIP. I took a steroid shot and am hoping to use my hand again soon.

As I contemplated what to write today, I thought about prayer. I could use and would appreciate your prayers. It’s amazing to know our God cares about our requests and needs. He genuinely loves us. Whatever we encounter in life, we can face it with Him. Please pray my hand heals, and I can return to typing with two hands… Do you have any prayer requests?

  1. I’m so sorry about your hand. I have wrestled something a little different that can affect me similarly (slows me down tremendously). I’ll pray for your healing. If I hadn’t had a fabulous chiropractor adjusting my wrists, I’d have had to have surgery for sure. ❤

    Pray that I am faithful in the things that the Lord has for me. in the last week I've been spurred on to fresh intimacy with Him, but that is so very reliant on the time I'm willing to take to be still. "The Lord will fight for me; I only need to be still." I wish to learn to do battle by the power of (in) the Spirit. This is my calling–to pray in the Spirit on all occasions. 🙂

  2. So sorry to hear that. I’ve had an issue with my shoulder for a few months that hasn’t been fun. Through it all, I still know God is my Healer. There’s a tension, isn’t there, between believing God’s will is to heal but not seeing it played out just yet. A physiotherapist has given me some great exercises to strengthen my muscles, and I still pray daily for the inflammation and pain to be healed in Jesus’s name. I will hold you up in my prayers as well!
