Welcome to day 47 of our James Bible Study! Let’s dig into James 5:13-14
Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. (NIV)
Do you notice the three conditions in which James refers to people? What are they?
I’m curious. Have you ever been anointed with oil and prayed over? I don’t see this practiced so I’m wondering if it is still happening. Do you think we should be anointing the sick with oil and praying over them more?
Today, focus on singing praises and praying if you’re in trouble. Need a reminder to praise? Check out my new Praise! wristbands to help you remember to praise every single day.
