In a recent issue of the Times-Union a prominent clergyman of your city affirms that preachers and priests of this age are not given power to heal the sick, and that "no healing from physical infirmities is promised or need be expected, except according to James 5:14."

But what does James say about healing physical infirmities? Just this: "Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him." James further says, "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." Surely this should be a command sufficient to warrant preachers and priests to attempt to heal the sick through righteous prayer.
