13 Is anyone among you 1suffering? 2Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to 3sing praises.
14 Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for 4the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, 5anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord;
15 and the 6prayer offered in faith will 7restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will 8raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him.
17 Elijah was 12a man with a nature like ours, and 13he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for 14three years and six months.
18 Then he 15prayed again, and 16the sky poured rain and the earth produced its fruit.
