VERSE OF THE DAY
I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night.
You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest,
and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem
and makes her the praise of the earth.
Reference – THE BOOK OF ISAIAH : Chapter 62 Verses 6, 7 ( NIV )

Lord, we remember everyone of your children who are in sickness and pain . They are in desperate need of your help. Abba, please have mercy . Please have mercy on us or we will perish. Abba, please forgive us our sins and heal our wounds . You are close to the brokenhearted and to those who are crushed in spirit. Please restore us. We repent for every thing that we have done, knowingly and unknowingly ,against your holy will . Father, please have mercy on us, please pardon our sins and deliver us from the curse of the diseases that are affecting us. Dear Jesus, our Great Physician, please lay your hands on those who are suffering, those who are desperately seeking you in these times of pain and brokenness .We thank you for the pardon and deliverance that you give to anyone who trusts in your Name .
