Spectacular Faith – James 5 – Draw Bible Stories Project

Spectacular Faith Story (James 5)

Team Healing – healer, flame, bed, sick man – When someone is sick or suffering, we gather to pray for them. God moves in power when we pray with faith.

Forgiven & Free – two disciples, dove, crown – We pray knowing that God will help us. We confess and forgive. God blesses the requests of the righteous and faithful.

Elijah’s Faith – prophet, flame, cloud, rain, plant – Elijah prayed for no rain, and Israel endured a long famine. Elijah prayed for relief, and God sent rain and harvest.

Restoration Culture – cross, praying disciples, broken chains – Some follow Jesus and then turn away. Jesus restores. God invites all who wander away to return.
