WE confess - Saturday, March 13

Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.
James 5

• Do we expect clergy, our families or others to read our minds instead of just asking for the pastoral care we need? Are we ashamed to be needy and thus deny ourselves the power of prayer and sacraments?
• How can our pastoral care be powerful as well as compassionate?
