THE PRAYER OF FAITH
“And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up….” James 5:15
Last night my wife and I went to a prayer meeting called for the purpose of calling on God for a number of people in the room with a variance of issues all caused by sin. God’s original creation did not suppose such meetings for sin had not yet entered. Sin caused the curse, suffering, disease, etc. Those issues had surfaced in several in this room, myself included. Cancer has entered my body and in 4 different regions. It is an aggressive version of prostate cancer and has affected 3 other parts so far. I have selected the best in my area of the country for medical expertise and have 3 different insurance coverages. I am about to go to a major cancer hospital to on go this journey. Anointing with oil is God’s method of dealing with this (James 5:14-15) and I have called for the elders of the church for their prayers of faith. I was not at ease with their handling of that service that God gave them to perform.
