James 5:14, 15 — Prayer of Faith!?

Day 2015: Spent 8 hours on Father’s Day laying wood floors in my son’s home. A good day, but I hope that’s not the way I celebrate it every year!!!

Scripture: When I am sick, I should call for the elders of the church to pray over me and anoint me with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer offered in faith will restore me and the Lord will raise me up.  If I have committed sins, they will be forgiven.

A few verses with so much potential to be misused. Physical restoration is not our promise – spiritual restoration is guaranteed! Focus on the spiritual!

Suggested prayer: Father God, I want Your blessing not my own personal desires . . .
