“O Lord,” I prayed, “have mercy on me.
Heal me, for I have sinned against you”
(Psalm 31:4; NLT).
Heal our hatred
With your love,
Our lies and boasting
With your breath;
Our lust for power
With your tears,
With your distress.
Heal our malice
With your blood,
Our greed and envy
With your pain;
With your death:
Then we will all
Be whole again.
He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins.
He was beaten so we could be whole
(Isaiah 53:5; NLT).
1. He loves us with unfailing love (Psalm 117:2; NLT).
He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit” (John 20:22; NLT).
Jesus wept (John 11:35; NLT).
He became anguished and distressed (Matthew 26:37; NLT).
2. The blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:7; NLT).
Christ suffered physical pain (1 Peter 4:1; NLT).
Christ died for our sins (1 Corinthians 15:3; NASB95).
His hands make whole (Job 5:18; NKJV ).
