Isaiah 61: 1-3 – The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the <Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.
I bless the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord on you to break out on you and around you in significant ways.
I bless you to walk in this to heal the sick, to raise the dead, to cleanse lepers and declare the gospel of the Kingdom in relevant and dynamic ways.
I bless you to proclaim the Good News of Jesus with Holy Spirit boldness and clarity.
I bless you to be a channel of Holy Spirit’s comfort to all who grieve for whatever reason.
I bless you as you give them a crown of beauty for ashes, the oil of joy in abundance instead of mourning and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
I declare that these people who come in touch with the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord in you will become oaks of righteousness and be a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendour.
And I declare that as you do this you too are an oak of righteous displaying the splendour and majesty of Almighty God, the splendour and majesty of Father, the splendour and majesty of Jesus and the splendour and majesty of Holy Spirit.
I bless you in the name of Jesus.
With my love – Caroline
