There is a place for experienced counseling in the church. God gives special gifts to certain individuals and enables them to touch the lives of others in meaningful ways. But the reality is that care and counseling does not belong in the sole possession of a gifted few. All of us are called to care for our brother or sister and the encouraging thing is … it’s easier than you might think.
James said it this way, “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”
