I Am The Lord That Healeth Thee


“…for I am the Lord that healeth thee.” ~Exodus 15:26


I am the Lord that healeth thee,

Thy wounds I will make whole

I bore thy sickness and thy pain,

I mend thy broken soul.

As far as the east is from the west

Away I cast thy sins

Washed in the river of Jesus blood

I remember them not again.

I am the Lord that healeth thee,

I bore all of thy wounds

Upon My cross of agony,

I suffered death for you.

I am the Lord that healeth thee,

I heal all thy disease;

The sickness of thy soul within,

The root that is unseen.

I am the Lord that healeth thee,

I heal in My own way,

I’m the Healer of thy soul,

Thy body too one day.

Someday I will make it new

And it will know no pain,

No sickness and no suffering

No sorrow, sin, nor shame.

And I will wipe away thy tears

In that eternal Day.

Nothing is impossible

For Those who will believe;

God is whispering to thy heart,

I’m the Lord that healeth thee.

Healing Scriptures

“…for I am the Lord that healeth thee.” ~ Exodus 15:26 (KJV)

“For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal, says the Lordbecause they have called you an outcast: ‘It is Zion, for whom no one cares!’” ~ Jeremiah 30:17 (RSV)

“Bless the Lord, my soul, and never forget any of his benefits: He continues to forgive all your sins, he continues to heal all your diseases…” ~ Psalm 103:2-3 (ISV)

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, and he was crushed for our iniquities,
and the punishment that made us whole was upon him, and by his bruises we are healed.” ~ Isaiah 53:5 (ISV)

“…who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.” ~ 1 Peter 2:24 (NKJV)


Heavenly Father, thank You for giving Your only begotten Son to die on the cross to bear our sins so that we could be forgiven and redeemed; our spirits forever healed and made whole, holy, and pure in Thy sight by His blood sacrifice.

 Thank You that Thy righteousness is not something we ever have to earn, because we cannot. We can never make ourselves whole or healthy spiritually by being good enough or by doing good works. Thy word reveals that our souls are born with a sin disease. This is why You sent Your Son, to heal our diseased souls, our sin sick spirits.

Because of our sins our bodies are subject to sickness and death in this life. But when we give our hearts to You, You heal our spirit and soul, You recreate us into the image of Thy Son and we are born anew. You heal the sin sickness we were born with by giving us a new heart.  The blood of Jesus cleanses us and makes us whole.

You not only heal our spirits, You can heal our bodies in every kind of way, spiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally. You are not limited in how You heal. You can heal when healing seems impossible. For nothing shall be impossible for You who created all the stars and number all the sand! 

Thank You, Father God, for Thy promise that someday in Paradise You will give us a new body that can never be made sick again, will never sin again, nor have sorrow, or pain.

Thank You for Thy promise in this life of total spiritual healing. Thank You that it is a free gift of grace to all who will simply believe You for it. We love You. In Jesus’ name, amen.

There’s A Rainbow Up Ahead

Rainbow Up Ahead
Copyright © 2011 Suzanne Davis Harden
All Rights Reserved.

Oh, There’s a Rainbow up ahead
Awaiting for me,
A promise of joy and hope,
A gift from the Father,
Creator of life,
The Maker of all Rainbows.

Oh there’s a promise up ahead
Of new life for me;
A river of mercy and peace;
Where the waters of God’s love
Will never run dry,
Where His presence
Will never cease.

Oh, there’s a rainbow up ahead
Awaiting for me,
The promise of bright new clothes~
A golden ring and a holy name
That no one but Jesus knows.

Oh there’s a promise up ahead
Of faith for my heart;
A gift from my Father above,
To help me to walk with Him each day
And to know His holy love.

Oh there’s a rainbow up ahead
Awaiting for me,
I just need to point my eyes
Up to the Son in the Heavens
And to trust that God never lies.

“Rainbow Up Ahead” are the lyrics to one of the prayer songs featured on my first album, “God’s Rainbow Promise.”

So often we get our focus off of Jesus and onto this material world, but the Bible reminds us that everything in this world that we can see and touch with our hands is only temporary, while the things we cannot see are eternal.

In his second epistle to the Corinthian Church, St. Paul encourages those who were suffering with these words, “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” ~ 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

God gives many promises in the bible to His children that are eternal promises that will only be fulfilled when we see our Lord face to face.
If we base our hopes in this material life we will be sadly disappointed, because as St. John wrote, “And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” ~ 1 John 2:17

Nothing in this material world is permanent. Jesus assures us that we are going to suffer tribulations in this life, but that if we abide in Him and in His word we shall have joy and peace because He is the same yesterday, today, and forever~He is eternal.
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”~ John 16:33

Trust God. He is completely faithful to keep every promise He makes. He has never failed you and He never will.

Heavenly Father, may You bless Thy children who are suffering trials of any sort, whatever path they are on today, lead and guide them with Thy wisdom and counsel.
Heal all hearts that have been broken and disappointed.
Speak words of comfort to those who desperately need a word from You, draw them close to You and encourage their heart with Thy measureless love for them.
Thank You, Lord, in Jesus’ mighty name, amen & amen.

Bible Quotation King James Version

You Who Fear The Lord

Illustration © 2015 Suzanne Davis Harden All Rights Reserved.

Isaiah 50:10
“Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that*obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the Lord, and *stay upon his God.”

Oh You Who Fear The Lord
(Prayer Poem inspired by Isaiah 50:10)
© 2015 Suzanne Davis Harden All Rights Reserved.

Oh you who fear the Lord
Who listen day by day,
For His holy voice
And always watch and pray,
Yet now you walk upon a path
Where God seems far away,
Though you’ve never strayed
From His holy path,
You cannot sense His hand
Showing you the way.

The road before you twists and winds
A dark and narrow way,
You cannot see where you should go
Although you’ve prayed and prayed.

Wait upon the Lord,
Trust His holy name,
He will come again to you
To light the path you take.
He will turn His face to you
And then your hope will shine
Brighter than a thousand suns
Your faith again you’ll find.

Jesus Christ is with you now,
Though you feel Him not
As His Father was with Him
Upon His holy cross
Of suffering and shame and pain,
He cried, oh Father Why?
Why hast Thou forsaken me?”
His Father heard Him cry.
The Psalmist said His Father heard
And did not turn away
From His pain and suffering;
He heard Him when He prayed.

God hears you in your darkness,
He won’t ignore your cries,
He’s with you in your suffering
Though you can’t see His light.

His light will come again,
You’ll rise from your Sheol,
Christ’s light will flood your Heart again
And you will be restored.
He’ll wrap you in His robes of praise
Your mourning turned to joy,
Oh wait, oh wait upon that day
Oh you who fear the Lord!

Psalm 22:24
“For He hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath He hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, He heard.”

Isaiah 50:10
“Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that*obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the Lord, and *stay upon his God.”

*Obeyeth: transliteration shama’ > to hear, listen to, Obey
To hear (perceive by ear)
To have the power to hear
To hear with attention or interest
To understand
To listen, give heed to
To listen, yield, obey

Darkness: chashekah
1. Darkness, misery (Strong’s)

The word *stay (Transliteration sha’an -BDB definition:
To lean on, trust in, support oneself in God. Stay in God: (Strong’s)

The idea in this scripture appears to be that if you are someone who loves and fears the Lord, who is walking in obedience to His will, and yet somehow are going through a season where you no longer feel His presence as you once may have, or are in a time of sadness or misery, or maybe you cannot perceive God’s voice about something you may need wisdom for and have been praying about; maybe your path seems strangely dark although you are doing all the right things like praying and reading your bible—this scripture is very comforting and gives a clear prescription to those who find themselves on such a dark murky path:

Trust in the name of the Lord and stay or wait upon Him.
Psalm 9:10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.”

Psalm 44:5 “Through Thee Lord, will we push down our enemies: through Thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.”

Psalm 83:18 That men may know that Thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

Psalm 86:11-13 “Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear Thy name.
I will praise Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify Thy name for evermore.
For great is Thy mercy toward me: and Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.”

Psalm 91:14 “Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known My name.”

Proverbs 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

Psalm 23:3 He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

Keep relying on God despite appearances and feelings which are deceptive.
“The grass withers and the flowers fade but the word of our God shall stand forever.” (Isaiah 40:8)


Immerse yourself in God’s enduring word filled with beautiful promises that will encourage and comfort you.
God is in His word.

St. John wrote that Jesus Christ is the living Word of God. (John 1:1)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

You will sense God’s nearness again as you begin to study and hold fast to His holy promises.
Wait on the Lord,
Be of good courage and He shall strengthen thine heart, wait I say on the Lord.” Psalm 27:14

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your word that promises You will never leave or forsake us. Even though we may go through seasons in our life where we may not sense Thy comforting presence, we have the assurance of Thy word that says You have engraved us on the palm of Thy hand and that our walls are ever before Thee. (Isaiah 49:16)
Thy word promises that mountains may depart and hills may be removed but You will never take Your holy love away from us. (Isaiah 54:10)
The Psalmist said that Your thoughts toward us outnumber the sand on the seashore. (Psalm 139:18)
And the prophet Zephaniah wrote that You sing for joy over us. (Zephaniah 3:17)
May all who pray this prayer be encouraged and comforted by these truths from Thy holy word.
May they sense Thy comforting love and presence as they never have before.
May You fill them with rivers of peace and hope and make new joy to abound in their life and wrap them in robes of light. Give them their heart’s desires, in Jesus’ holy name. Thank You Lord, I love You, Amen.

The Book of Life Prayer Song & Video Music & Lyrics © 2014 Suzanne Davis Harden

Revelation 3:5

“He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.”

Philippians 4:3

“And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.”

 Revelation 20:11-15

“And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” ~St. John writing in his vision

 The Book of Life

 God cherishes each one of us. The bible says that “God our Savior…wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:3-4) Jesus Christ told Nicodemus, a religious leader who came to Him one night,  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” ~(John 3:16-17)

 The Lake of Fire mentioned by St. John in the book of Revelation was prepared by God as an eternal punishment for the devil and the angels that rebelled against Him.

Gustave Dore Lucifer The Fallen Angel
Gustave Dore Lucifer The Fallen Angel

It was never intended for man whom God made in His own image.

Yet, the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, fell away from God when they rebelled against His command. The result was spiritual death and a loss of divine fellowship.


Gustave Dore Adam & Eve Expelled From Paradise






All of their children would, like them, be sinners or rebels against God. They would never be able to enjoy perfect fellowship with God because God is holy and cannot dwell with sin.

God’s word says that sin must be paid for with a sacrifice. Hebrews 9:22 says: “In fact, according to the law of Moses, nearly everything was purified with blood. For without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness.”

The only One worthy to pay for our sins, to redeem our souls from eternal destruction and to bring us back into fellowship with God, was God Himself, for He alone is perfect among all His creation. He is sinless, spotless, without blemish.

God the Son, Jesus Christ, came to earth clothed in flesh so that He could become a living sacrifice and shed His holy blood to pay for our sins. He loved us that much.

Christ on the Cross ~ from the San Xavier del Bac Mission

God could not die unless He became human. That is why He had to be made like us. He suffered a horrible death on the cross so that our sins could be forgiven and so that we could live in Paradise with Him forever.

Not only did He want us to enjoy eternity with Him, He wanted us to be able to enjoy fellowship with Him now.



Once we accept Jesus Christ into our hearts, we become God’s own children. The Father sends His Holy Spirit into our hearts to seal our salvation as a sure sign that we belong to Him. We will never be alone again from that point because He will never leave or forsake us. His love will keep us firmly in His strong grip. He will help us weather every storm. He will meet our every need. He does not promise freedom from trials-for “many are the afflictions of the righteous,“ God’s word says, “but the Lord delivers him out of them all.”

My Testimony

Angel Writing In The Book Of Life Pen & Ink Illustration © S.D. Harden All Rights Reserved.
Angel Writing In The Book Of Life Pen & Ink Illustration © S.D. Harden All Rights Reserved.

The moment I invited the Lord Jesus Christ into my heart I felt a beautiful peace envelop me and a warm glowing presence filled the room. I heard the Lord speak to my heart. “All will be well, You are going to be all right.”  I was only 16 years old.

As I lay in my bed that night filled with Christ’s peace I saw an image in my heart of an angel writing my name in a huge book.  Though I had gone to Catholic school, I had never heard about  the Book of Life.  I wondered what the vision meant.

Not until I began to read the bible on my own through the discipleship of our neighbor did I learn about the Book of Life and what that vision meant.

God was showing me that He had recorded my name in His book of life that night when I had accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into my heart.

It comforted me to know that my name was written up in Heaven.

When I grew up and my children were in Sunday school I created a picture of an Angel writing in the Book of Life. I made it into a Sunday school book cover for the children in the church we were attending. I wanted it to comfort them to know that after they had accepted the Lord as their Savior, their names were written in Heaven, and when the Last Day comes, and the books are read, they will be judged “Not Guilty,” because they are wearing the righteous robes that Jesus has given them. Their sins have been washed away by the blood of the spotless Lamb of God.

Rev20 How do our names get into God’s Book of Life? The Book of Romans says: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” ~Romans 10:9-13

That night when I was 16 years old I simply called upon the name of the Lord and He came to me. God is no respecter of persons. The Lord Jesus said He would never reject anyone who called upon His name. (John 6:37) And once a person receives Him into their heart, He will write their names in His Book of Life.


 Heavenly Father, may You bless all those who call upon the name of Thy Son Jesus Christ and write their names in Thy Book of Life. May they live with You forever. Thank You, Lord, In Jesus’ name. Amen.

If I Take The Wings of The Morning


If I Take The Wings Of The Morning (A Prayer Song)

© 2014 Suzanne Davis Harden All Rights Reserved.

 Oh where could I go from your Spirit,

Oh where could I flee from You, Lord?

If I take the wings of the morning

If I fly to the farthest shore,

If I ride to the heights of heaven,

If I fall to the depths of Sheol,

Your mercy will come and find me,

You will seek and find me, Lord

Your grace and mercy find me

No matter how far I flee,

Your love is everywhere I go,

My heart You will never leave.

When all the blessings go away

In the midst of the Shadowlands,

Lord, Your love will never leave

You’ll hold me in Your hand.

Your blessings, Lord, they are not You,

Oh may I not mistake

Your gifts as symbols of Your love,

And think my soul You hate,

When all the blessings go away,

Lord, in the fiery trials~

You’ll never take Your love away,

Forever I’m Your child.

 Oh where could I go from Your Spirit?

Oh where could I flee from Your love?

You’re in my heart forever, Lord,

And I’m in Yours, oh God.








Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us so much that Your word promises that You will never leave or forsake us. You watch over us everywhere we go; You are with us in every moment of our lives, sharing in all our joys and suffering with us through all our sorrows and pain.

When we stumble on our path, You are there to lift us up, dust us off and help us to our feet again, ever ready to forgive knowing that we are not perfect. You cherish us for we are Your masterpieces, made in Your own image and You long for us to know how much You value us.

Help us to come close to You, to hear Your voice, to see Your face in the face of Your beloved Son Jesus Christ who died on the cross that we might be saved from our sins and be given eternal life.

Thank You for the wonder of Thy grace and of Thy measureless love for us. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

God Hears You


“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in His word I do hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
more than those who watch for the morning—
Yes, more than those who watch for the morning.
Psalm 130:5-6 (NKJV)

God Hears You
© 2014 S.D.Harden

God hears you when you cannot speak,
He hears each whispered cry,
He hears when you in secret weep
He hears each longing sigh.

God hears the silent prayers
That form inside as tears,
He hears the prayers you cannot pray,
God understands and hears.

God is listening to your heart
When you feel all alone,
He’s with you in your darkest hour
A light to lead you home.

God knows every thought you think
Before you say a word,
And though you may not cry to Him
Your voice will still be heard.

For God will hear the silent prayers
Of every broken heart,
He’s close to all who are oppressed,
From them He won’t depart.

Wait upon The Lord, oh wait!
And trust that He is near,
Like watchmen for the morning wait,
Oh trust that God will hear.

Trust that God hears every prayer
And there will come a day
When you will see the answer
To every prayer you prayed.

Wait upon The Lord, oh wait
And trust that He will come,
God is listening to your prayers
And answers every one.

God will hear and answer
According to His will,
His love will give us what is best,
Just wait for God, be still.

It Will All Work Out


It Will All Work Out
© 2014 S.D. Harden

The Lord is on His throne
He knows our every need,
The one who numbers all the stars
Rules over everything.

He hears our every prayer,
He bottles every tear,
He’s close to every broken heart,
He draws them very near.

He says that everything we see,
When all is said and done,
Will all work out for good somehow,
So we must trust His love.

God will make each sorrow,
A blessing we can trace,
In the fabric of our life,
When we see His face.

And we will thank Him for the things,
We now don’t understand;
For everything He gives to us,
Are blessings from His hand.

The Lord is in control,
He knows our every need,
He never will forsake His child,
His love will not deceive.

The Lord is in control,
The Lord is on His throne,
He who numbers all the stars,
Will not forsake His own.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the assurance in Your word that You are in control of all that happens in this world, and that this world is not our final home.
All that we now see is temporary and what we cannot see is eternal. Help us to see with eternal eyes, to know that whatever happens today is not going to really matter to us 100 years from now.
But You and what You think of us and what we did with the gift of our lives on this earth will matter very much to each of us who are reading these words 100 years from now.
Your word says that if we believe Jesus died for our sins, we will live forever with You in eternal paradise.
May you open our eyes to believe Your word, be filled with Your love and live forever with You.
Thank You, Lord, In Jesus’ name, amen.

The Measureless Love of God


The Measureless Love of God

“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”~John 14:27

Jesus Christ taught that God is our loving Heavenly Father.
He said that God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that all who would believe in His death on the cross for their sins and subsequent resurrection, would never die, but could enjoy fellowship with God now on earth and also forever in eternal paradise. (See John 3:16)

Jesus taught that those who believe in Him as their Savior would be forgiven all their sins, reborn from above and adopted into God’s family as His own precious children.
He said that His children could ask His Heavenly Father for anything in His name and it would be done for them!

“Jesus said,”If you live in Me and what I say lives in you, then ask for anything you want, and it will be yours. I will do anything you ask the Father in My name so that the Father will be given glory because of the Son.” ~John 14:13-14
…If you ask Me to do something, I will do it.” ~John 15:7

Jesus said that our Father knows our needs even before we ask Him!
He taught that God is such a God of love that He even cares when a common sparrow falls to the ground and dies.
God measures the dust of the earth, the Bible tells us, and He cherishes each of us so much that He counts the very hairs on our head.

St. Paul wrote, “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” ~Romans 8:31-32

Jesus said we must ask God for what we need even though He already knows our needs.
In Luke 18:1, He tells His disciples, “People ought to always pray and to never give up.”

Sometimes God may seem so silent as if He is not listening to our prayers. But He hears them all. The Psalmist envisioned our compassionate Creator
collecting our tears and putting them into a special bottle marked with our name.

Psalm 56:8 “You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book?”

God will answer our prayers in His own way and time.
The prophet Habakkuk wrote, “For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end fulfillment; it will not deceive or disappoint.
Though it tarry, wait earnestly for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.”~ Habakkuk 2:3-4

Our God asks us to walk with Him day by day with eyes of faith, trusting Him and believing His word even though we cannot see or feel Him.
The author of the book of Hebrews wrote, “Faith is what makes real the things we hope for. It is proof of what we cannot see.” Hebrews 11:1

Hebrews 1:6 “Without faith no one can please God. Whoever comes to God must believe that He is real and that He rewards those who sincerely try to find Him.”

“Look at the proud; his soul is not straight or right within him,
but the rigidly just and the uncompromisingly righteous man shall live
by his faith and in his faithfulness.”~Habakkuk 2:3-4

Our God is a merciful, compassionate Father. If He allows us to be thrown
into the fiery furnace of affliction to refine our faith, He will jump into that fire
alongside of us just as He did for the Hebrew captives in Babylon so long ago.
(See Daniel 3:24-25)

When my children were little, God gave me a beautiful poem to comfort and encourage me. I recently made it into a prayer song, now available on my album, “God’s Rainbow Promise.” May this prayer song comfort and encourage you wherever you are on your journey.

Yahweh’s Promise
© Copyright 2013 Suzanne Davis Harden All Rights Reserved.

I love you, My child
And I’ll never forsake you,
You’re one of My own.
I will always be with you;
Your hand will I hold,
For in your heart My word is sown.

Don’t be afraid of the darkening night;
The times, they are evil
And you will have to fight.
But the good and upright and the just will prevail;
With My word as your sword you can never fail.

Walk on in faith and don’t ever look back
To the road you have already trodden.
The way is before you and the past is gone—
Walk on in faith though the way seems long;
Walk on in faith though the way is long.

I love you, My child, and My peace is yours.
I will never forsake you—not one of My own!
Though all around you the storms are severe,
Remember in faith I am always near,
To uphold and support you, no matter where,
In failure, in victory, in doubt, in despair;
In laughter, in weeping, in danger, in fear…
My promise forever: I am always here…

I am always here, I am always here,
My promise forever, I am always here.

Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us so much that You sent Your only Son to suffer and die for our sins so that we might be forgiven and become Your very own children through Christ’s atoning sacrifice. Give us Thy grace to comprehend Your measureless love for us and to never take Your beautiful Gift, the Gift of Your precious Son Jesus Christ for granted. Thank You, Lord. I love You.
In Jesus Name. Amen.
