Anointing the sick with oil and praying for healing
James 5:14 (ASV 1901)
14Is any among you sick? 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:
Rosa Bell, oldest daughter of medical missionary Nelson Bell, desired God to heal her from tuberculosis. Many prayed for her and she was anointed with oil. She was sure that God had healed her, but stayed in the hospital long enough for x-ray studies to prove it.
Atabacdora fell off a tree and X-ray results confirmed he fractured his back and neck. Bruchko and Bobby dared to trust God for his healing; they anointed him with oil, laid hands and then prayed for him. When another X-ray was carried out three days later on him, the confounded doctor declared: "It’s quite amazing. There’s no sign of even a hairline fracture in his back now. It’s some kind of a miracle."
C. T. Studd was traveling long distances on foot in China. His feet broke down and one became infected and swollen, to the point that he could not wear shoes. He and one of his companions read James 5:14-15, obeyed it and found complete healing.
C. T. Studd's wife was dangerously close to dying during childbirth. They were of the same mind to pray and trust God. C. T. Studd anointed her with oil in the name of the Jesus, and she was healed.
C. T. Studd was dangerously ill with the "African fever." He asked the elder of the local congregation, and man in his twenties, to anoint him with oil and pray. Only having kerosene, the young man anointed Studd's forehead, prayed, and the next morning the fever was gone.
Simon was the chief driver for a ministry, after suffering from diabetes for years his left foot developed a sore that threatened his whole body system. He was told by doctors at a hospital that the foot would have to be amputated. During morning service, the staff of the ministry prayed for Simon's foot. Later in day he encountered a strange man who prayed for him anointing his legs with oil, and then the strange man vanished. That night he was healed completely.
