It’s interesting that the book of James starts with the author, James, calling Christians to pray! In the fifth chapter, he says to pray in times of struggle and in times of joy. Prayer is needed in all circumstances on life and God’s Word is a constant reminder of that. No matter the season or why you find yourself in prayer, gratefulness is the key to healing and living a life in the way God would want us to live. The opposite of gratefulness is grumbling – and that’s a sin – and that leads us far from God’s best for us.
