THEME: OIL OF THE SPIRIT
James 5:14-15 NKJV
“Is anyone 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. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.”
-The ministers of Christ who have been called to oversee the flock, and have the gift of healing can anoint brethren with oil and the Lord releases forgiveness, healing and His blessings. Mark 6:13 reveals that disciples of Christ have been commissioned to anointed with oil those who are sick, and heal them by the power of the Holy Spirit. God reminds us to pray and apply faith as little as a mustard seed, and we will move mountains (Matthew 17:20-21). We know that it is by faith that the woman with the issue of blood was healed from her affliction (Mark 5:34).
Dear Heavenly Father we humbly submit ourselves at Your feet asking for Your mercy and grace. May You increase as we decrease. We lift Your name and enthrone You on high. All other gods are made by human hands, they cannot see nor hear our prayers but on You Lord are our true God, we trust in You. We praise You and exult Your holy name. We bless Your name and magnify You, for You are God and none can be compared to You. May You forgive us all our sins, sins of our families, sins of our forefathers, sins of our nation, and sins of the world. May You sanctify us and wash us with Your precious blood dear Jesus. May You heal all those who are suffering from cancer, diabetes, HIV and Aids, cerebral palsy, arthritis, stroke, glaucoma, and other diseases. May You heal all those who are sick and suffering among us and make them whole. May You grant freedom and a better life to all the street families. May You grant all those who do not know You and acknowledge You as our God, the gift of salvation dear Jesus. May You grant us Your sure peace in our nation and revive our economy. May You protect us all from harm or premature death, together with our loved ones. All glory, honor, power and victory belongs to You Lord, now and forever. Amen
