James 5:13 – Praying or Praising

Today’s Reading: Ezekiel 42:1‐43:27, James 5:1‐20, Psalm 119:1‐16, ñProverbs 28:6‐7

Context: James begins his discussion on praying for others in faith.

James 5:13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise.


  • If you are suffering – Pray
  • If you are cheerful – Praise

I love how basic this verse is.  Why don’t I live this way?

Apply: I need to learn to respond to all circumstances with prayer or praise.

How do you need to be responding to your current circumstances?  Stop for a few minutes and spend time praying or praising.
