Lord Jesus Christ, thank you that you are faithful to fulfill all your promises. The Bible says that you have taken my pain, you have borne my suffering, you were pierced for my transgressions, you were crushed for my iniquities, your punishment brings me peace and by your wounds, I am healed. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.Follow me
