The Prayer of Faith

Hi all – I talked to Mary at midday yest and her headaches had lessened…prayer answered. The local efc had gotten over the connect with her and see what support she might need and was going to continue checking in. jim and ron had been able to get up to visit along with several alumni from crisis response staff…thanks guys! And her sister was on her way.

We we’re out last night and I missed her call, but her vm said she was expecting to be in for the catheterization this morning, so pray for healing as you read this. Thanks,. ml

James 5:13-20 The Prayer of Faith (scripturally encouragement from Becky S)
13Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. 14Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick20person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. 16Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. 17Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. 18Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops. 19My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring him back, 20remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins.
