I’m not called the Happy Wonderer for nothing. There are lots of things I wonder about. Right now I’m in the midst of my yearly Bible reading (reading each book of the Bible 20x ~ which will take way longer than a year) I’m in the book of James.
James 5:14-15 ~ “Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.
So my questions are:
Has anyone called their elders when they are sick? Did they come?
Did they annoint you with oil and pray for you?
If you haven’t done this, why not?
Is it a common practice?
What has your experience been with this instruction?
Leave a comment with anything that might help my wondering….
