James 5:13-18

Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises. 14 Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.

16 Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. 17 Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! 18 Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops.


Q: How does James say in verse 15, we should offer up our prayers? What do you think this means?

Q: What does verse 16 say might be a blockade for our healing? What is said about a righteous persons earnest prayers?

Q: Do you need healing that the Elders can pray for? Have you done a heart check of any sin that needs to be repented of and confessed? Who can you pray for healing for?
