READ: James 5:13-14

Snapshot: In this passage James is teaching believers to call on each other when troubles come. When we’re happy, we should be thankful and praise God. When we’re sick we should call on those we consider to be godly to pray with us. James mentions elders in this passage which is referring to the godly leaders in the church.
