This evening we witnessed the body of Christ participating in a unique ministry for Elaine. In offering anointing oils and prayers to God simultaneously, peace came to my sister. With our Christian friend being trained in essential oils therapy, our female friend lovingly applied aromatic oils upon Elaine coupled with healing prayers to the Father.
Five of us around Elaine prayed and quoted Scriptures of hope and healing. In our taking turns to beseech God specifically for His healing care upon her, we sensed His spiritual aroma coupled with potent scents of peppermint, lavender and frankincense. The Father visited all our hearts throughout the creative prayer process.
The event being God-centered rather than oil centered afforded God’s peace and love for Elaine and us. After departing, we heard how peace reigned there. Loving care surrounded my sister granting her relief from chronic, complex pain.
Thank You, Lord, for using Your people and Your creation to bless others in suffering!
