And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
Our scripture verses discuss prayer and the results of prayers. What this proves is there is power in prayer and faith that goes with prayer. Verse 13 instructs us to pray if there are any among us that is ill and if everything is okay, then sing songs of praise. There is healing power in prayer, and we must have enough faith to believe in our prayers.
There are many instances in the Bible where prayers were made, and faith opened the door to answered prayers. Mustard seed size faith will move mountains (Matthew 17:20 KJV). Jesus instructed His disciples to have this kind of faith, and they could do the impossible. We will have mountains in our lives; we must exercise mustard seed size faith, and then watch God work.
Verse 15 reminds us there is power in praying the prayer of faith; it will heal the sick as well as bringing into realization the desired result of our prayer. Faith in Jesus Christ is essential to our salvation.
Pray whether we are petitioning God for self or someone else or thanking Him; pray, and have faith.
