Questions for further study:

  • There is a greater point in verses 13-15 that just giving you a list of categories in which you should pray. What do you see the connecting theme of these verses?
  • When these verses (14 & 16) refer to the sick, are they referencing the physically sick or the more general, spiritually sick?
  • In verse 16, what makes the "the righteous person," righteous?
  • Verses 17 & 18 give an example of the power of a righteous person's prayer in Elijah's prayers to stop and start rain (1 Kings 17 &18). What is the main point James is making in these two verses?
  • What made Elijiah prayer effective? What makes your prayers effective?
  • Why do you pray?
  • Would you say your prayers align with the posture of God?
  • What does this passage teach you about God?
  • What does this passage teach you about yourself/mankind?
  • How does this passage teach the Gospel/point to Jesus?
  • What step of obedience do you need to take today for your life to reflect these Truths?
