Memory Verse
"The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them 
 up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven.  Therefore 
 confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that 
 you may be healed.  The prayer of the righteous is powerful and 
 effective. "
  - James 5:15-16
