M. Healthy Practices in the Church Life

13 Does anyone among you suffer evil? Let him 1pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him 2asing praise.

14 Is anyone among you 1ill? Let him 2call for the aelders of the bchurch, and let them pray over him, 3canointing him with oil 4in the dname of the Lord.

15 And the 1prayer of afaith will save the one who is 2bsick, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has 3committed sins, it will be cforgiven him.

16 Therefore aconfess your sins to one another and pray for one another that you may be bhealed. The cpetition of a righteous man 1avails much in its working.

17 aElijah was a man of blike feeling with us, and he 1earnestly prayed that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months.

18 And he prayed again, and heaven gave arain, and the earth sprouted forth with its fruit.

19 My abrothers, if any one among you is 1bled astray from the ctruth and someone dturns him back,

20 Let him know that he who turns a 1sinner back from the error of his way will 2asave that one's soul from 3death and will 4bcover a multitude of 5sins.
