Anointing with Oil

James 5:14 says: “Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.”

Our friend, mentor and pastor, Tim, asked us the other day if Brian would want to be anointed with oil and prayed over by the pastors of our church. Brian has mentioned this before, but it just hasn’t come together. But this Saturday at 7 p.m. at our church campus in Liberty, MO, we are going to gather with some of our church’s pastors and they are going to anoint Brian with oil and pray for his healing.

I remember my hometown church doing this a lot, it seemed like a ritualistic thing back then. But now I understand it completely. While science and medicine have their place, only God alone can heal. He can do it through medicine, but He has the power to speak it into being as well. What better place to start than to beg the father on Brian’s behalf.

We’d love for you to join us if you are in the area and would like to come. It probably won’t be a long, drawn out thing, but please know that you are definitely welcome to join.

No matter where you are now, or on Saturday night, thanks for begging, pleading, and storming heaven on Brian’s behalf.
