I love that this came up recently, because again it is about prayer.

We are responsible to each other, more specifically our Christian brothers and sisters. We need to help each other out. To do that, we must be vulnerable. We have to find people to confide it. We have to take advice and learn to listen. Part of the growing process is knowing that we have much to learn.

I myself am continually growing. I have missed it in so many ways. However, the Lord put three strong men in my life that have helped set my feet on a course of success.

James 5
16 [j]Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, [k]fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

We confess so that we can be prayed for to receive victory and we confess so that the other person has an opportunity for a deeper relationship with us. We cannot form proper bonds with people without true and without substance.
