UNDERSTAND: get a deeper understanding of the key words


  1. Begin by underlining nouns with a single line, double underline verbs, and circle descriptive words.

  2. Make a list of the keys words/phrases and think about what they mean.


Snapshot: In this passage James refers back to an Old Testament prophet named Elijah. The events James is referring to can be found in 1 Kings 17-18. The point James is making is found in James 5:16, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” Elijah was a righteous man and his prayers were certainly powerful.
