The holy scriptures instruct us to pray tirelessly. Christ's ministry continues in the Acts of the Apostles and in the life of the Church (Body of Christ). St. James wrote "Is anyone of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is anyone sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up". (James 5 13 ‐ 15).
This passage from the scriptures is often used as a reference of the Sacrament of the Anointment of the Sick. Many Christian churches today continue this spiritual practice when they pray for healing; by the grace of God all Christians are called to pray for the sick and others, expecting the Almighty God to hear and answer each fervent prayer.
