2 Corinthians 12:9New American Standard Bible (NASB)
9 And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast [a]about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
10 As an example, brethren, of suffering and patience, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.11 We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the [a]endurance of Job and have seen the [b]outcome of the Lord’s dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful.
12 But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath; but [c]your yes is to be yes, and your no, no, so that you may not fall under judgment.
13 Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises.14 Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, [d]anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord;15 and the prayer [e]offered in faith will [f]restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, [g]they will be forgiven him.16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective [h]prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
