"We think that the will of God is about something we should do versus something we should be. When really, if we were what we should be, we would already do what God desires." - Jen Wilkin, James podcast week 9

"Elijah, [James’ 5example of the prayer of the righteous man that’s powerful and effective], why was his prayer a powerful and effective prayer? Because he was praying what the LORD had already told him was going to happen. He was praying the revealed will of the Lord in that particular situation. What is the will of God for your life? That you be saved; that you be sanctified; that you obey; that you suffer. . .  Do you actively pray the prayer of the righteous person by aligning your prayers with God’s declared will?” - Jen Maloney Wilkin, James Study podcast, Week 10
