It doesn’t hurt to have a little faith, to believe that it can provoke the unimaginable and lead you to live a happier life? Sometimes, that happiness could be in the form of you overcoming stumbling blocks and establishing your business, finally saying ‘I do’, going home to a peaceful family life or, winning a tiresome battle over an illness.
Definitely, a little help to boost your faith goes a long way.
For thousands of years, olive oil has been used for anointing, as an act of faith. An anointing with oil is like turning on a signal flare to heaven. It’s a sign to God that you require special attention in a time of need.

Getting the best out of the oil
Anointing with oil is not something new. It has existed for years. Although the oil itself has no power, it can be used to awaken people’s faith to help them provoke the extraordinary to happen. It’s almost like a sign to God that you require special attention in a time of need.
Why is the anointing oil important?
The anointing oil will be a point of contact between you and God. Many people find it difficult to use their faith in God because He seems to be far away. The oil, on the other hand, is something tangible, which helps people’s faith in Him to be ‘real’. Remember, it’s faith in God that prompts the miracle; the oil is merely a point of contact between you and Him.
How do I use it?
Simply anoint the objects or area that represent difficulties or challenges in your life (this will depend on what you are asking for), and say a prayer asking God for what you want.
If I use it for my health, should I continue to use it together with medication?
Absolutely! Continue your medication and attend any doctor’s appointments you have scheduled. Faith and medication are not incompatible; they work together. When your doctor confirms your healing, he or she will tell you when to stop using medication. See the anointing as a complement to the treatment you may be receiving.
What kind of problems can I use the oil on?
The oil can be used for any kind of problems; it all depends on your faith. For example, you can use it to anoint the sick, the emotionally distressed, your loved ones and family, and your workplace to mention but a few.
