"Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord."
Today my husband, Reagan and I had the pleasure of being prayed over and anointed with oil by the elders of Dunwoody Community Church. Over the past couple of months we have been prayed over by our wonderful small group and by a healing prayer group at another church. Each time has been special and a blessing in it's own unique way. To have our elders, who we put such trust in, those that listen and follow God to now follow the words of Jesus as it is written in James.
The prayer of each elder strengthened us, warmed us and brought us renewed hope.
We were also reminded of God's creation, Elder Bob brought in a Camellia flower, bright pink with brilliant green leaves, God's beauty in nature. Bob said how each living thing that God creates is perfect. Whether it's a flower, or an infant in the womb, it's all God's perfect creation.
I praise you, so wonderfully you made me; wonderful are your works! Psalm 139:13-14
Although it's hard to always remember, but it brings such peace that God has everything under control. He doesn't need my help and it actually makes it easier for me if I just let go and let God.
