James 5:14-18The Message (MSG)
13-15 Are you hurting? Pray. Do you feel great? Sing. Are you sick? Call the church leaders together to pray and anoint you with oil in the name of the Master. Believing-prayer will heal you, and Jesus will put you on your feet. And if you've sinned, you’ll be forgiven—healed inside and out.16-18 Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. Elijah, for instance, human just like us, prayed hard that it wouldn't rain, and it didn't not a drop for three and a half years. Then he prayed that it would rain, and it did. The showers came and everything started growing again.
"For where two or three gather together as my followers,[a] I am there among them.”
While at Camp yesterday Mike took a hard fall. He landed on his shoulder. As of last night he could not raise his arm up over his head. He is in a great deal of pain. He went to camp today as he was going to allow movement to decrease stiffness, & hopefully improve range of motion. I admire his dedication to work in all conditions but I am concerned about the shoulder. He says it hurts up into his collar bone and down past his shoulder blade. Could you agree in prayer with me:
Pray for comfort and healing of his shoulder. we are hoping it is just bruised...
if medical attention is in order pray for the provision for that?
