30 POWERFUL PRAYERS FOR FRESH ANOINTING
Text: Isaiah 10:27, Luke 4:18, Psalms 92:10, 2 Corinthians 4:16
Anointing is the manifested power of God. it is God’s abiding presence in a person’s life that enables them to work in the office that God has ordained for them. Fresh anointing cannot exist where the presence of God is not found.
When a man is anointed by God and he begins to do amazing things that ordinarily here would not have been able to do. Without the anointing, we are just our usual selves, and will do our normal ordinary things. But with the anointing, we can do extraordinary things.
The Bible tells us that Jesus went about doing good and healing people after he was anointed.
“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” –Acts 10:38
Anointing is simply God’s endorsement showing that He is with you or has sent you.
Why You Need Fresh Anointing
As a Christian you need fresh anointing to stay relevant. This doesn’t mean to be running about looking for who will pour oil on your head. Instead, you are to stir up the anointing of God upon your life so that is fresh each day.
Just like athletes let’s train and exercise regularly to maintain fitness, it is necessary for a Christian to stir up the anointing by regular spiritual exercise.
10 Things That Can Prevent Fresh Anointing
As an anointed vessel of God, you have to steer clear of things which can rob you of your anointing. Holiness, humility, and obedience are some of the important criteria for receiving and maintaining a fresh anointing.
A Carrier Of God’s Anointing Must Be Mindful Of The Following:
- Shutting out the Holy Spirit
- Refusal to learn
- Refusing to yield to the Holy Spirit
- Using the anointing for showoff and selfish gains.
- Lack of prayers
- Carelessness and gluttony
How To Get Fresh Anointing
- Spend Time With God
Remember the gold is the giver of the anointing. Spending regular time with God can increase your anointing. According to Acts 4 vs 13, when Peter and John manifested the anointing, they were easily recognised as men who had been with Jesus.
- Thirst For More (Isa 55:1-3)
It is not just enough to be in the presence of God, you must I also have a craving for the anointing. Are you thirsty for a fresh anointing? God will fill you up.
2. Encounter God Through His Word (Rom 10:17)
The word of god is like a trigger for the anointing. Constantly deep yourself into God’s mind by studying his word. This way you increase your faith in God and your ability to carry His anointing.
3. Create Room For More (2 Kings 4:3)
Only a vessel with space can accommodate more oil. Create room for more fresh anointing building capacity. Don’t remain at the same level and expect the anointing to function at a different level. you must endeavour to grow spiritually and increase your anointing carrying capacity. One sure way to grow is to constantly make use of the anointing you already have. Don’t be a stagnant Christian.
- Associate with anointed people (Prov. 27:17)
It was Elisha’s close association with Elijah that gave him the privilege to receive a double portion of the anointing. Get closer to people who are truly anointed by God.
2. Pray fervently (James 5:16; Jude 1:20)
Prayer is necessary for a fresh anointing. As a Christian, prayer builds your faith. Our Lord Jesus Christ often took some time out to pray. He would often pray late into the night. Do not undermine the power of prayer. It is one of the ways to heat up the anointing as hot oil is more powerful and cold oil.
