Desperate times call for desperate measures so let us pray with desperation.

1. The Call to and Cause of a Desperate Prayer (v. 13-14) – When life is good, when we are full of joy and are cheerful, we should give Him praise. And when life is hard, or you are in trouble, we MUST pray. The call is to pray. He holds the power that you want access to.

2. Prayer is Effective (v. 15-18) – James is very strong here. He says the prayer offered in faith will restore the sick, the LORD will raise them up and they will be forgiven. He goes on to say that the prayer of a righteous man will accomplish much. Your call to action is PRAYER, and if you have not yet sought God in desperate prayer, start today and don’t stop til you get your answer.
