James writing to believers JAS1:2,3 asks Is anyone among you sick? Jas5:14Believers who are redeemed from the curse of the law and who live endeavouring to make the right choices may become sick. So what does the Bible call us to do?
PRAY.Call on the elders of the church and pray.JAS5:14. You do not have because you do not ask JAS4:2 The man with a fever-Paul entered in and PRAYED and laid hands on him and healed him. ACTS28;8,9.Jesus said If you ask anything in My Name I will do it.Ask and you will receive.
JN14:12-14;LK11:9-13.Now this is the confidence that we have in Him that if we ask anything according to His will He hears us.And if we know He hears us whatever we ask we know that we have the petition we ask of Him. 1JN5:14-15. Do you believe He hears?
HAVE FAITH IN GOD.The prayer of faith will save the sick. JAS5:15.Without faith it is impossible to please Him for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who dilgently seek Him.HEB.11:6 What things you desire WHEN YOU PRAY BELIEVE that you receive them and you shall have them.MK11:24.Jesus thanked His Father that He heard His prayer for Lazarus BEFORE Lazarus came out of the tomb.
