By His Stripes

by-his-stripes

Holy heavenly father, you have sacrificed so much for us being here

You have given us the gift of life and a huge world to care

You gave us everything on the land which we would need to survive

After molding from the Earth and breathing in the breath of life

Lord, make your promise be revealed

For by his stripes I am healed

More than thirty nine stripes, he suffered the most

Yet he could have simply called on the father above or the Holy Ghost.


But he endured the pain and suffering so his people will be healed of their sins

He suffered the stripes, so our diseases will be no more

The Blood of Jesus represents his spirit

Striped from his mangled and weakened body, from head to feet

His pain his sufferings has healed me and has cast away all evil spirit of sickness

As the spirit of Jesus lives within me so does the power of healing

So by his stripes, I am healed, my soul is strong scented of God’s glory

It is not a weakling.


So teach me Lord, teach me to believe in me. Teach me how to command my healing

Teach me to have the strong power of faith to cast away all illness

Teach me to be hopeful and cast away hopelessness.

I can feel his presence within me, strong and real

For I do believe by his stripes we are healed.

Powerful prayer, bother Clive. Very moving testimony in beautiful poetic form. So glad I found this one on my feed. Good to see your work and connect to it. This offering is perfect for this season of Lent. "And by his stripes, we are healed." Amen.

Clive,

It is amazing that he would endure this pain for the likes of us...but he did.

Thankfully we have him to turn to when moments are bleak

I do believein the power of healing. I was annointed with oil at my church before a gamma knife procedure on my brain.

It isnt a commom thing for my church to do, but it really helped me.

Not immediately...but days before procedure I became calm. Then I wasn't even scared during the treatment which lasted for hours..morning until dark.

So believe...it truly works.

I am not religious but if that’s what empowers you and brings you comfort that is good. I hope you are doing well in this difficult time.

I'm not a terribly religious man, but I admire anyone who has that kind of faith. All I can say is something, or someone, saved me from myself fourteen years ago, and for that I am eternally thankful.

Peace be with you, my friend!
