James 4

The connection of friendship with the world to prayer is interesting. Worldly people fail to pray. You have not because you don't ask. And, they pray for their pleasures, so they don't receive. James 1:7-8 tell us the double-minded man won't receive anything from the Lord. Even being half-way worldly kills prayer!

The necessity for humility comes out three times:
  1. With regard to God. God exalts the humble and humbles the proud.
  2. With respect to the law. Do it, don't be a judge of it.
  3. With respect to life. Dont' brag about tomorrow. You are only a vapor!
