Prayers for the Sick

“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.” (James 5:15)

James offered an exaltation regarding what we can do if we suffer or if we become ill. He advised us to call for the elders of the church to pray and anoint us for healing. James believed that the prayer of faith would save the person who was ill and then the Lord would raise them up out of sickness. (James 5: 13-15)

Jesus prayed many times and laid hands on people that were sick who recovered. “Now when the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to him, and he laid his hands on every one of them and healed them.” (Luke 4:40)

There was one occasion when a woman with an issue of blood, didn’t even wait for Jesus to lay his hands on her. She was determined to grab hold of the hem of his garment because she knew that healing power flowed through his body. And as soon as she touched his garment, power flowed out of him and she was healed. “And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.” (Luke 8:48)

Let us remain in faith, continue to study what the word says about healing, pray for those who are sick and expect a miracle.
