Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16
Merriam Webster says: Synonym Discussion of effectual
effective, effectual, efficient, efficacious mean producing or capable of producing a result. effective stresses the actual production of or the power to produce an effect <an effective rebuttal>.
Note the word POWER above. That would indicate that there has to be something coupled with prayer. Could it be Faith, the Holy Spirit?
Merriam Webster says: Synonym Discussion of fervent
impassioned, passionate, ardent, fervent, fervid, perfervid mean showing intense feeling. impassioned implies warmth and intensity without violence and suggests fluent verbal expression <an impassioned plea for justice>.
Note the word Passionate
Paraphrased: The effective prayer coupled with faith and the Holy Spirit passionately felt of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16
Just something think about.
