The healing powers of frankincense and prayer

Tis the holiday season

As we vastly approach this holiday season, I thought it would be onlyThe healing powers of frankincense and prayer fitting to share a true story about the healing powers of frankincense and prayer.  Growing up as a small child, Christmas was more about Santa Claus and receiving gifts.  However, many homes (like mine) would be deliberate in sharing the Christmas story of Jesus’ birth with their children.

With that being said, one of the many highlights of the Christmas story was the offering of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to baby Jesus from the wise men.  Furthermore, the gold represented a prized metal; the frankincense was the aromatic substance or incense; and the myrrh was the The healing powers of frankincense and prayeranointing oil.  Most interestingly though was that the three gifts had more of a “spiritual symbolism about Jesus himself – gold representing his kingship, frankincense a symbol of his priestly role, and myrrh a prefiguring of his death and embalming.”

Real-life account of frankincense

In referring to the Christmas story, I’d say that the aromatic oil, The healing powers of frankincense and prayerfrankincense, had a very special significance to Jesus’ time here on earth.  Not to mention, I firmly believe that it possesses spiritualistic powers to heal the sick and is revered as our own special treasure from God.

On to my story – a few months ago, my husband started complaining about the right side of his neck hurting. He said that he felt as if his neck was ‘cranked’ and beginning to swell.  At the time we weren’t too concerned since everyone in the house had been fighting off a ‘cold’ to include a sore throat.  However, even after everyone else seemed to be feeling better, my husband was still sick.  In addition, he had a very infected finger that was pussy, red, and inflamed.  Could he have strep or a staph infection?  We were clueless.

As the days went on, the right side of his neck swelled up to the size of a baseball. In fact, it was affecting his range of motion to the point where he couldn’t even turn his head to the right. Not to mention, it felt
hot to the touch and was extremely painful. Furthermore, nothing offered relief – not the heating pad or an ice pack.

At this point, his neck was no longer symmetrical on both sides, but rather a ‘deformity,’ so to speak that caught your eye.  Eventually, the pain was unbearable and he had no choice but to go to the emergency room.
During his E.R. visit, they performed a cat scan, did blood work, and started referring to the thing on his neck as a large MASS.

Administering the antibiotics

To our dismay, the doctors were trying to rule out lymphoma since this so-The healing powers of frankincense and prayercalled mass was pushing on his carotid artery and restricting blood flow.  Naturally, he was going to need further testing and they started him on a round of antibiotics.  After 2 rounds of antibiotics, there wasn’t much of a noticeable change in the mass’s size.

Treating with frankincenseThe healing powers of frankincense and prayer

In the meantime, we decided to take matters into our own hands and started using some Frankincence essential oil.  With that being said, he religiously rubbed the oil on his neck everyday with a roller ball.  Although we were seeing some improvement, his physician wanted to proceed with performing a neck biopsy anyway.

Unfortunately, the biopsy was a very unnerving experience.  All the medical professionals were very ‘tight-lipped’ and even said to us, “everything is treatable.” Although supposed to be comforting, what was that supposed to mean?  Did they see something they’re not telling us?

After several days, we went to the physician’s office to learn the results of the biopsy. I still remember sitting in the doctor’s examining room and thinking, “in just a few minutes, we are either going to be really happy or really upset.” So, he basically told us that the results came back negative for lymphoma, but that it could be a false negative. In other words, we were at “the edge of the woods, but not out of the woods yet.”

In addition, we were told by the physician that he may eventually have to cut into his neck to take more sample tissue.  Consequently, the risk involved with this type of procedure was that it may permanently damage the nerve that controls his right shoulder!

Needless to say, we decided to settle for an one more procedure, an ultrasound of his neck. However, by the time he goes in for his ultrasound, his neck ‘mass’ is 85 – 90% down in size. It is basically unnoticeable at this point and after waiting three days for the results, we were elated to hear the reading of the ultrasound – no suspicious abnormalities!

After a very bumpy road and many tears, the mass was GONE!  Moreover, I firmly believe that God’s sacred oil, frankincense, and the power of prayer are what healed him.  The moral of this story is to keep your minds and heart open to other forms of treatment.  Sometimes just truly believing in the cure, is what ultimately heals you in the end.treating headaches with essential oils
