The Healing Power of Holy Oil
Today, we're bringing you two Miracle Monday experiences that display the power of anointing. Enjoy!

As a young boy of about 8 or 9 years old, I used to get tonsillitis very often, so much so that I was scheduled for surgery. The surgery date had been set and canceled a few times because every time it was set, my tonsils would become infected, and they couldn't proceed.
We had a Wednesday night service at our house, and I was anointed. As the elder was praying, I was praying also because I was afraid of the surgery.
A few days later, my mom and I were in the kitchen together when I started coughing and choking at the same time. My mom finally reached her hand into my mouth and pulled out what was the lining of my throat. The skin had little white pus spots on it.
The amazing thing is that the second that she removed it from my throat the itching and pain were gone. That was 60-plus years ago, and I still have my tonsils to this day, and I never had tonsillitis again. Praise God!

I was called to the hospital to anoint a lady named Daisy who was a part of our nursing home outreach. She was very ill, and, as we approached her bedside, she was delirious with pain, repeating the same words over and over: "Just give me five more minutes Lord, just five more minutes."
I placed the oil on her head and commenced praying for her, and her breathing slowed, and she settled down and actually went to sleep. We departed from her room and got into the elevator, which was located a short distance from her doorway.
As we stood inside the elevator waiting for the door to close, a man who was sitting across from the doorway spoke to us. He said he had heard my prayer, and he was encouraging. He said he was our brother.
With the anticipation of the elevator door closing, we looked away briefly, and the man disappeared. And, as I recall, there was no seat across from the elevator. We cannot explain this occurrence, but Daisy lived another two or three years after this incident.
