The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. James 5:16 (NIV)
The Amplified Bible says, the earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its moving]. The Message Bible says, the prayers of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. The Bible declares someone who has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior as right with God. Our righteousness is because of Christ – when God looks at us He sees the righteousness of Christ.
