Unction

by: Shirley Satterfield

Unction 🔥

Stoke the fires of my love, dear Lord,
And give me greater faith.
Faith is but a rod we cast at Pharaoh’s feet, as Satan we defeat.
Satan, let my people go
And let them pass through safe.
Loose them from the chains of the world and the bands of spiritual sin.
Put unction in our gumption in the gaps that lie within.
