Meeting Specific Needs(A)

13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him (B)pray. Is anyone cheerful? (C)Let him sing psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, (D)anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. (E)And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 [a]Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. (F)The effective, [b]fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. 17 Elijah was a man (G)with a nature like ours, and (H)he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. 18 And he prayed (I)again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.

Bring Back the Erring One

19 Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone (J)turns him back, 20 let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way (K)will save [c]a soul from death and (L)cover a multitude of sins.
