Prayer and Anointing

James 5:13-15 reads,

Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. 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.

Notice, God gives us a directive, a command of what to do if we are seriously ill.  He tells us to go before the elders of the church to receive prayer, anointing of oil (oil is a symbol of the presence of the Holy Spirit).  I believe the reason many believers suffer more than they ought is they do not obey this simple directive; they do not avail themselves of the blessing and help God invites them to receive!  Scripture declares, “You have not because you ask not.”  Could it be one is missing a blessing or healing simply because one has not asked?  We have a divine invitation to come before the throne of God’s grace to obtain help in time of need.

Here at Snow Prairie, we take this directive to heart, we will anoint with oil (a combination of Frankincense and Olive Oil) , lay hands of prayer on and pray for any who seek it.  We do NOT guarantee or promise healing, that is God’s domain to decide in His own time and manner how He will bless an individual.  We can simply obey His instructions to pray and anoint.  We can testify to having seen amazing blessings from obeying His Word in this matter.  We will be glad to pray for you!
