Title: The Prayer of Faith
Text: James 5:13-18
I. Why you need people to pray for you (vv.13-15)
Sick? Anointing? Forgiveness? What’s going on?
II. Why you should pray for people (vv.16-18)
Effective? Powerful? Righteous? How is this us?
“And he [Jesus] taught them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart.” (Luke 18:1)
• How often do you ask for prayer in the course of your life, and for what?
• Are you ever weary? Weak? What helps break you out of that?
• Are you consistently praying for other people? Why or why not?
• In what ways are you like Elijah, and how does that impact your faith?
