16 Therefore, (A)confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, (B)that you may be healed. (C)The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.[a] 17 Elijah was a man (D)with a nature like ours, and (E)he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for (F)three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. 18 (G)Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.
