Oct 26, Day 300 - James 5

Click here to go to James 5

WOW!! Day 300 only 66 left. Home stretch and it's been such a blessing to me to read through the New Testament. I've been working on the schedule for next year. Next year will start with John again but then the rest of the Gospels will be spread out about every 3 months. Reading the rest of the New Testament in order that it is believed they were written in. For the weekends reading through the Psalms.

James ends with wonderful words regarding prayer my favorite:
13 Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises. 14 Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.


  1. James 5
    7-8 Brothers and sisters, be patient until the Lord comes again. See how farmers wait for their precious crops to grow. They wait patiently for fall and spring rains. You, too, must be patient. Don’t give up hope. The Lord will soon be here.

    11 We consider those who endure to be blessed. You have heard about Job’s endurance. You saw that the Lord ended Job’s suffering because the Lord is compassionate and merciful.

    James 1
    When You Are Tested, Turn to God
    2 My brothers and sisters, be very happy when you are tested in different ways.
    3 You know that such testing of your faith produces endurance. 4 Endure until your testing is over. Then you will be mature and complete, and you won’t need anything. 5 If any of you needs wisdom to know what you should do, you should ask God, and he will give it to you. God is generous to everyone and doesn’t find fault with them.

  2. About a month ago, I was asked to do a guest "sermon" at a church I used to attend and the verses were James 5:13-18, so I've looked at these verses a lot lately. And yet, I STILL forget to pray when I'm worrying about something. :-)
