How to pray over the oil?
For some Christians, it may be biblical to use anointing oil for various purposes, as specified in James 5:14 and Mark 6:13. In church, it is customary to anoint the sick with anointing oil for healing purposes.
How can I pray over the oil before using it for anointing purposes? The prayer of faith will make the oil ready for use. You may pray your own personal prayer, but you may also pray the following prayer:
Thank You Father for this oil. I commend it to You in Jesus' Name. I sanctify it with the blood of Jesus and consecrate it for holy use in Jesus' Name. I beseech You that it be anointed and consecrated with the power of the Holy Spirit. May this oil be for healing, purification and wherever it is applied, may the power of the Holy Spirit heal, free and break every evil yoke and every unholy power. May Your presence be evident wherever it is used and may You, Father, receive all glory and honor. May all the works of the enemy be destroyed and diverted as this oil is applied to the person it touches. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
