Day 3 Read: James 5:16
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
Reflect: How does this verse relate to carrying one another’s burdens?
Consider: Confess (exomologeisthe). The preposition ex, forth, out, implies full, frank, open confession, and so in every case of its use in the New Testament. See on Matt. 3:6.
Respond: Why do you think confession leads to healing?
