Are any of you in trouble? Then you should pray. Are any of you happy? Then sing songs of praise.
Are any of you sick? Then send for the elders of the church to pray over you. Ask them to anoint you with oil in the name of the Lord.
The prayer offered by those who have faith will make you well. The Lord will heal you. If you have sinned, you will be forgiven.
So admit to one another that you have sinned. Pray for one another so that you might be healed. The prayer of a godly person is powerful. It makes things happen.
Elijah was just like us. He prayed hard that it wouldn't rain. And it didn't rain on the land for three and a half years.
Then he prayed again. That time it rained. And the earth produced its crops.
