Prayer amongst the Chilean miners

Here’s a cool article about the power of prayer in the “community” of Chilean miners when they were trapped.

Chilean miner Jose Henriquez spoke to the National Prayer Breakfast this morning.

The article reminds me of James 5:16, of the healing brought through confession and prayer. Though in the immediate context, James seems to be talking about physical healing, I think relational healing is implied as well, because mutual confession will result in relational healing.

“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”
