Praying When Sick

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. James 5:14 NIV


I am part of a prayer team. We use What’s App to send in prayer requests and pray for what others have requested. Today’s verse is about praying for the sick. I never noticed that the person who is sick is the one who should ask for prayer. They are the ones who should take the initiative for a special prayer service. I am always willing to pray for others and ask for prayers for family and friends, but I don’t always ask for prayer for myself unless it is something serious like surgery. I now realize how important it is to ask for prayer from others. Praying for each other builds a bond between you. We are all worthy of others’ prayers, even for things we think are small matters.
