Scripture Reading: James 5:15-16
(Prayers offered in faith will save those who are sick, and the Lord will cure them.) If you have sinned, you will be forgiven. So admit your sins to each other, and pray for each other so that you will be healed. Prayers offered by those who have God’s approval are effective.
Think: Admitting my sins to myself is hard. Admitting them to God is harder still. But admitting them to others is hardest of all. Why is that? I KNOW that God will forgive and forget sins for which I truly repent. Can I trust my friends to do the same? Can they trust me to do son?
Pray: Merciful God, break my heart of stone so that I may show mercy to others even as you have been merciful toward me. Amen.
