Community at Prayer
Free Starter Version
So much of what James was writing about had to do with the way that people functioned together in their Christian communities. Today’s passage is about prayer and more specifically the responsibility that communities of faith have to pray for one another.
Scripture: James 5:13-20
Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven.
