13Is anyone among you suffering? He should pray. Is anyone cheerful? He should sing praises. # Ps 50:15; Col 3:16 14Is anyone among you sick? He should call for the elders of the church, and they should pray over him after anointing him with olive oil in the name of the Lord. # Mk 6:13; 16:18 15The prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will restore him to health; if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. # Is 33:24; Mt 9:2; Mk 2:5; Lk 24:47 16Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The urgent request of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect. # Nm 11:2; Mt 3:6; Jn 9:31; 1Pt 2:24 17Elijah was a man with a nature like ours; yet he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the land. # 1Kg 17:1; 18:1; Lk 4:25; Ac 14:15 18Then he prayed again, and the sky gave rain and the land produced its fruit. # 1Kg 18:41-45; Jms 3:17-18
