Let him sing praise.
2nd Prayer and personal healing
Is anyone among you sick?

Let him call for the elders of the church,

and let them pray over him,

And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

1 Corinthians 11:29-30
For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died.
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.
4th Prayer and power
The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
Elijah was a man with a nature like ours,
and he prayed fervently that it might not rain
and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.
