What Shall Heal the Sick?

 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 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. – James 5:14-15

When we are sick, we pray; when we are broke, we pray; when we are hungry we pray: but what it is that we are actually asking for? And when do pray, are we really praying? And when we do manage the right conditions, do we pray according to His instructions? The Bible teaches us in James 4:2-3 that:

“You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

Just think that the Greek word for “wrong motives” is actually “kaka”! Get the point? We pray that you are blessed by this poem and ask that you share it with someone.
