APPROPRIATING THE PROMISES OF GOD
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. James 5:13,14
The body of Christ has available to them the healing power of the Lord Jesus through the elders of the church. Although many churches do not have elders, none the less there will be men who are mature believers, trained and equipped to pray for you.
Jesus said where two or three have gathered together in His name He would be in their midst, so call for whoever you can find and have them anoint you with oil and you will be healed! The anointing oil is not the healer but is symbolic of the Holy Spirit who is!
There is power in numbers and the more who come together in the name of the Lord, the more power will be available to heal and deliver the afflicted. If one can put a thousand of the enemy to flight, and two, ten thousand, twelve can send 100 trillion of the enemies of God running!
And the prayer of faith will save (deliver) the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins he will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed, the effective fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. James 5:15,16
