This is a bottle of anointed oil in my sister’s room that she got from church when it was prayed for. She uses it to anoint herself when she prays and it is meant to represent God’s presence over her. Although to anyone else it may just be extra virgin olive oil, to my sister it symbolizes the power of the Holy Spirit over her. Whenever she has pain she has dabbed some of the oil over the affected area, prayed, and has testified that she is relieved from pain. I have heard of many miracles performed by Evangelists using anointed oil. Something important to note is that it is not the oil itself that has power but what it represents, the Holy Spirit, the one that performs the miracle. It is also a constant reminder to my sister that she must keep herself full of God just like the small vessel. Once it runs out she tries to fill it up as soon as possible.
