Confession that brings healing

"Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. .." James 5:16 NIV

This is something that is quite new to me. We often confess our sins in private to God and I'm sure He hears and will forgive us. But there seems to be a healing that comes from confession to each other. Especially if the other person had been the injured party. Even sharing with someone close helps to keep each other in accountability when two stand together.

But beyond confessing, it's important to proceed to praying. Pray for each other, to release forgiveness to each other or to release the power of God in our lives.

Something new for me to grow in :)
