James 5:14-16

The Prayer of Faith

14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, w anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And x if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore, y confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, z that you may be healed. a The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. 1
