What is an example of anointing of the sick?



      

James 5:14 - 15

ESV - 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, 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 if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

Although a detailed account is not given, Mark 6:13 indicates that, after Jesus had sent the apostles out two by two to various villages to preach repentance, and had also given them authority over unclean spirits, the apostles additionally healed sick people by anointing them with oil, which would apparently have been the same practice referred to by James in the passage cited in the question.
