Wanting hair to grow and be lustrous is not being vain. If you’re experiencing some unexplained hair loss, I hope these scriptures will encourage you. I got them from a woman at my church who was experiencing hair loss about a year ago. She used these prayers coupled with anointing oil (EVOO). Her hair is not a little past shoulder length.
In Judges 16:17, 19-20 we see the connection between the strength of Samson and his hair. I Corinthians 11:15 states that “if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.”(KJV) For clarification, let’s compare other versions of the same verse:
And isn’t long hair a woman’s pride and joy? For it has been given to her as a covering. (New Living Translation)
But if a woman has long hair, it is her ornament and glory? For her hair is given to her for a covering. (Amplified Version)
Notice the different versions and how they all state that the hair of a woman is either a glory or pride and joy or ornament. Either way, the Word is clear – long hair is our entitlement as women and it is God’s gift to us. God’s Word is health to our flesh (Pr 4:20-22). For as long as we are willing to rely on God’s Word, He is willing to meet us at the point of our needs.
It’s it wonderful that there’s Word for something that would ordinarily seem so inconsequential as hair? You can turn these scriptures into prayers, along with taking proper care of your hair and watch your hair begin to grow.
