One of the reasons for a prayer meeting is to have the platform to confess our sins. However, it’s important that we confess our sins to God but also to each other. James 5:16 says, “…confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.” Through prayer and communication, Christians can utilize prayer meetings to spiritually restore themselves.
Forgiveness is one of the key elements to Christianity. Not only is it important to understand that God forgives His children for their sins, but as a whole we must forgive each other for our own sins as we come together in prayer meetings. Jesus wants his people to encourage and support each other through love and understanding. The fellowship that is developed through a prayer meeting will help to encourage spiritual strength within individuals and overcome other obstacles that happens on a daily basis.
