Therefore, by praying for everyone, we get to fulfill the will of God which is, we confess to one another and pray for one another to get healed which is according to James 5:16.
The Bible speculates that we should carry other people’s burdens to fulfill the law of Christ in Galatians 6:2. When we pray for others, we get to carry their burdens and leave them to God.
