Do not take an oath on something,
From Heaven or upon the earth;
Only state to what truth will bring,
The value from its lawful worth.
If any of you have trouble,
Let your faith enter in your prayer;
As to make it through the rubble,
For your message to God you share.
Prayers offered in faith saves the ill,
Allowing the Lord to cure them;
Much more quickly than any pill.
Not letting someone to condemn.
If you have sinned you must confess,
Be assured you are forgiven;
Knowing for sure the Lord will bless,
Of a salvation in Heaven.
Admit your faults to each other,
Praying so that you will be healed;
Showing your sister and brother,
That the Lord is also their shield.
Prayers offered with His approval,
Can be the ones most effective;
Ensuring of the removal,
Whatever has been defective.
Pray with all of your heart and soul,
Grasping your hands together tight;
Sincerity helps to reach your goal,
For making your prayer to be right.
Pray for the rain to reach the root,
Of everything that you sow;
And the sun will help bear you fruit,
So that it will flourish and grow.
If someone wanders from the truth,
Assist to bring that person back;
Ridicule not or be uncouth,
Rather show them just what they lack.
Whoever brings a sinner back,
Causing the error of his ways;
Enabling to strengthen his knack,
For resistance where someone strays.
