II Chronicles 7:14

"If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

 

James 5:16

"...the earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available (dynamic in its working)."
