The Prayer of a Righteous Person is Powerful and Effective

By Lessonsofadad @lessonsofadad
One of the most passionate and dynamic speakers (and therefore one of my favorites) in the Christian world is Francis Chan.  I’ve written a post about him last year, and it’s high time I include another video of him now. 
I recently spoke in my church’s youth group last weekend, and at around the beginning of my talk, I showed them this powerful Francis Chan video clip on how God answers prayer so powerfully.  Check it out and be wowed.

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective Indeed, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”  (James 5:16b)
But you know what?  The God that pulled him through out of that hairy situation is also the God that has pulled me out of mine (and I have my own stories, for sure)….and if you allow Him, He can also work mighty things in your life as well.
But you might be thinking…

You can sometimes struggle with that, right?  One of my former students was a Catholic who became agnostic because a critical prayer in her young life wasn’t answered.  I had to lovingly coach her about the topic of prayer.
As for you, dear readers, I’d like to give you the web source material of my talk, in the hopes that your questions in this area will also be quenched. 
Can your prayers by powerful and effective, like what it says in James 5:16, and what was shown so vividly in Francis Chan’s video?  Yes they can.  Just check out this site.
Oh, and Francis Chan is also one of the best authors.  Crazy Love, in particular, is an especially good book.
Francis Chan's books:
Erasing Hell
Crazy Love
Forgotten God
