how should we pray?

James 5:6 “The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous avails much.”

Let’s break this down:

Effectual-binding (like in a contract)

Fervent-great intensity or enthusiasm

Avail– to be of value or profit

So it could be read as follows, “With both sides fully committed, the binding, intense, and enthusiastic prayer is of great profit!”
