As I continue to ponder prayers for the healing of neurologic disease, more names keep coming to me, some e-mail requests, some personal. I’m adding Alan, brain-damaged by a traumatic delivery, now grown, and Samuel, three years since his bike was hit by a car. There is such a need!
Dear Jesus, Son of man and Son of God,
You are the true vine, and Your Father is the vinegrower. Help Lauren, Chris, Joseph, Sally, Gaenor, Mark, Samuel, and Alan to abide in You.
Their covenant root is in You. They are rooted in Christ Jesus the Lord. Help them to face their illness and be not afraid. Build up their faith to walk in Him.
Their anointing is from You. Anoint their heads with oil–a double portion: one portion to break down false attitudes, strongholds built on lies; another portion to let Your glory rest upon their neurons.
Holy Spirit, rain down upon them and yield an increase–in their spirtual fruitfulness and in their physical healing. Rain, Spirit, rain. The work of Jesus on the cross is finished. Cleanse them with the Blood of the Lamb and the washing of the water of Your word for each one.
Jesus is the vine. Lauren, Chris, Joseph, Sally, Gaenor, Mark, Samuel, and Alan are the branches. Amen. Amen. Amen.
John 15, Colossians 2:6-7, Psalm 23:5
