“Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.”
King James Version (KJV)
Jas 5:13 Is any among you afflicted? Let him not swear, or engage in any improper use of the tongue, but "let him pray". God is the Helper in such an hour. Is any cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Let his joy be shown, not in wanton speech, but in singing praises. Prayer and thanksgiving are the appropriate expressions for each condition.
