Daily Word:You Should Pray

By Rosalba | May 2, 2017

But above all[things], my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath; but let your yes be [a simple] yes, and your no be [a simple] no, so that you may not sin and fall under condemnation.

Is anyone among you afflicted(ill-treated, suffering evil)? He should pray. Is anyone glad at heart? He should sing praise[to God].

Is anyone among you sick? He should call in the church elders(the spiritual guides). And they should pray over him, anointing him with oil in the Lord’s name.

And the prayer[that is]of faith will save him who is sick, and the Lord will restore him; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

Confess to one another therefore your faults(your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray[also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored[to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest(heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available[dynamic in its working].

Elijah was a human being with a nature such as we[with feelings, affections, and a constitution like ours]; and he prayed earnestly for it not to rain, and no rain fell on the earth for three years and six months.

And [then] he prayed again and the heavens supplied rain and the land produced its crops[as usual].

My brethren, if anyone among you strays from the Truth and falls into error and another[person] brings him back[to God].

Let the [latter] one be sure that whoever turns a sinner from his evil course will save[that one's] soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins[procure the pardon of the many sins committed by the convert]. James 5:12-20(AMP)
