We have come to the end of our study in the book of James and this is a powerful ending! James tells us about a man who had a hot prayer life – Elijah. I talk more about him in the video below.
2 Chronicles 16:9 says:
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him.
God is at work in our world today and the means through which He works is through men and women whose hearts are hot for Him. His eyes are on us.
We mustn’t be cold or even lukewarm in our prayer lives. God calls us to be women who pray.
If you are struggling in your prayer life today…this video is for you – Becoming a Woman With a Hot Prayer Life.
Praying is a spiritual work; and human nature does not like taxing, spiritual work. Human nature wants to sail to heaven under a favoring breeze.
Prayer is humbling work. It abases intellect and pride, crucifies vainglory, and signs our spiritual bankruptcy, and all these are hard for flesh and blood to bear.
It is easier not to pray than to bear them. So we come to one of the crying evils of these times, maybe of all times –little or no praying…
The little estimate we put on prayer is evident from the little time we give to it.
We are about to take a 3 week break between this James study and the start of our Joshua study.
Many of you ask me what I recommend you should study or do during our breaks? My recommendation is to use this time to draw near to God in fervent prayer – to turn your cold or lukewarm prayer life – into a HOT one.
Here’s Resources from my blog to assist you:
Here’s Some of My Favorite Books On Prayer

You do not need to have scholarship, training, talent, or wit for prayer. Ask, seek, knock –that is all…Will you believe the promise? It is Christ who gives it. No lie ever fell from His lips. Oh, do not doubt Him. Pray on if you have prayed, and if you have never prayed before, may God help you to begin today! ~ Spurgeon
Let’s become women with a hot prayer life! Have a great end of the summer break!
