From Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of his impending insanity:
Daniel 4:14-15a (New International Version)
[A messenger from heaven] called in a loud voice: ‘Cut down the tree and trim off its branches; strip off its leaves and scatter its fruit. Let the animals flee from under it and the birds from its branches. But let the stump and its roots, bound with iron and bronze, remain in the ground, in the grass of the field.
The secret things belong to You, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of Your law. Your children suffering from neurologic disease perish for lack of knowledge. Yet, Your Son Jesus taught us that it is Your good pleasure to give us the kingdom.
We are searching for Your good gifts in Holy Scripture. Nebuchadnezzar’s prophetic dream of his insanity had bands of iron and brass or bronze around the great tree. To those neurologic and psychiatric diseases resulting from imbalances of these minerals–iron, copper, zinc, tin, phosphorus–we speak the name of El Elyon.
You are God Most High. How great are Your signs, how mighty Your wonders! Your kingdom is an eternal kingdom; Your dominion endures from generation to generation. Your dominion extends over the micronutrients of the central nervous system.
El Elyon, You can make a way for these neurologic patients. You brought Israel out of Egypt. You brought Jesus out of the tomb. And You can bring these patients out of their bondage. Amen.
