James 5:13 | NIV | Other Versions | Context

Brief

James, the brother of the Lord, was largely portrayed as a prayerful man, and there is a slight emphasis on prayer in his book. His epistle was addressed to the twelve tribes scattered among the nations [James 1:1], and he wrote on a variety of topics regarding the Christian living. There are 54 commands in his 108 verses, as he urges his readers to do the Word of God. As he ends off his epistle, he turns to ideas of patience in suffering and faithful prayers at the same time. These are ideas preached by Paul as well, who encouraged in Romans, be joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer [Rom 12:12|Article]. In today’s study let us meditate on this simple instruction, which forms a simple cheat-sheet in life.
