What is a fervent prayer?

We can never underestimate prayer.

The finished work of Jesus goes beyond our imaginations.

Jesus died on a cross, not just to save you and heal you and secure your position in Him, but also to restore man into his original position of authority.

There is power

Life and death is in the power of the tongue and those who like to use it shall eat the fruit thereof. 

So, why are we not using it by speaking to our mountains?

Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Jas 5:14-16

The Greek word for fervent is energeō which is composed of two words, the Greek word en that means with and the word ergon that means with a specific business (purpose).

James says it straight as it is

He says that because we have been declared righteous, what we declare and speak into the spiritual realm has a great power. 

Such is that power (in Christ) that the sick will be healed, that the power of sin will be broken when we confess (exomologeō - take a stance of being of the same mind as the Logos Himself that your sins had been forgiven and your body had been healed because of the finished work of Jesus). We submit our sins to the Truth of the cross!

Jesus defeated the enemy on the cross. He rose and instructed those who believe in Him saying All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore ... Mat 28:18-19

You and I have been given the power to speak fervent truths of healing and forgiveness and restoration and love and kindness and mercy and grace that will avail to much.

Not perhaps!

Not somewhat!

Not halfway!

But to the full extent of the finished work of Jesus!

Wow, that is fervent indeed!
