Sweet to the Soul: Health to My Bones
By Nina Medrano –
As a mentor, I rely on the counsel of the Holy Spirit and on the Word of God to bring freedom and healing to the hearer. It is always such a sweet benefit to me when the Holy Spirit inspires and anoints a prayer modeled after the precious Word of God. Recently, the Spirit of the Lord inspired such a prayer modeled after Psalm 133.
Abba, Father, as we stand before Your presence, in one accord, in agreement with your Word, in the spirit of unity, I ask that you would release your precious anointing oil and pour it upon the heads of our leadership: government, churches and households. I ask that you would align our thoughts, our wills and our emotions to the will and the Word of God. May we learn to take every thought captive and bring it to the obedience of Christ in everything we do.
Let the precious ointment run down our eyes. Give us eyes to see your works in our lives; open our spiritual eyes of understanding. Let your oil continue to run down to our ears, and give us ears to hear the voice of Your Spirit and remove all blocks and hindrances and all other voices that hinder us from hearing your voice. Let your oil continue to run down over our mouths. Your Word says that the tongue is unruly and undisciplined. We yield our tongues to Your Lordship and we ask you to cleanse and purify our tongues from wicked words and anoint us to speak pleasant words that heal, cleanse and restore the hearers. Place Your hand upon our mouths and fill us with Your Word. We will speak Your word and we will not be afraid!
Let your precious oil run down our necks and shoulders. Remove the stress of this world and if there be any yoke of stiff-neck stubbornness and rebellion, we ask for forgiveness. Release your anointing that breaks off the yokes of bondage off our necks and replace it with the yoke of Jesus which is easy and light. Let your oil run down upon our arms and hands. Forgive us for trusting in the arms of our own flesh and defiling the works of our hands. We place our trust in the arm of God and God alone! Cleanse our hands and make them worthy of ministry and able to deliver many from the yokes of bondage.
Let your precious oil run down our garments down to our feet. Anoint our feet and our lives to walk and live out the gospel of Your kingdom in our private lives as well as in our public lives.
Let the anointing of Your Holy Spirit so settle upon our lives like the dew of Mt. Hermon and just like the frightful, thick fog that descends upon the mountain of Zion; so let Your Spirit descend upon us!
And, there, oh Lord, command your blessing, even life forevermore. We humbly ask for this type of anointing from Your Spirit in Jesus name, amen and amen.
