16 Therefore, (A)confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be (B)healed. (C)A [a]prayer of a righteous person, when it is [b]brought about, can accomplish much. 17 Elijah was (D)a man with a nature like ours, and (E)he prayed [c]earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for (F)three years and six months. 18 Then he (G)prayed again, and (H)the sky [d]poured rain and the earth produced its fruit.
