Dew

Dew is mentioned in the OT, but not the NT. It is a blessing, its absence a curse. In the Song of Solomon the dew fills the head of the male lover:

Song of Solomon 5:2 (Young’s Literal Translation)
I am sleeping, but my heart waketh: The sound of my beloved knocking! `Open to me, my sister, my friend, My dove, my perfect one, For my head is filled [with] dew, My locks [with] drops of the night.’

El Elyon, God Most High,
We honor and glorify You who lives forever. Your dominion is an eternal dominion; Your kingdom endures from generation to generation. You do as You please with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back Your hand or say to You: “What have You done?”
We lift up those persons afflicted with neurologic and psychiatric diseases in the Mississippi Delta. We rend our hearts before You. We have perpetuated many iniquities and broken covenants. We have broken Your holy laws, and there is no health in us.
Have mercy, Lord. Have mercy. You are gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love. Take pity and relent from sending calamity upon those who suffer from neurologic and psychiatric disease. Do not make Your inheritance an object of scorn.
Send the dew of Your blessing upon Your children. Send Jesus, head dew-filled, locks dripping, wearing seven crowns. He took all our sicknesses and healed all our diseases.
Blessings! Blessings! Blessings! Heal your children. Amen.
