Jesus loves you, he created us, he can heal our bodies-any part of us. If you don't know him, pray this prayer: Jesus, I admit I am a sinner. I ask you now to forgive me of my sins, wash and cleanse me with your precious blood that you shed on the cross for me, and I shall be white as snow. I do believe you died on the cross for me and rose from the dead and you are alive! I right now receive you into my heart as Saviour and Lord, a men, I am saved, born again in you! Get a copy of God's Word-for english-get the king james bible. God will grow you up in Jesus through his Word. Lay claim-agree-pray with-according to God's Holy Word right now where it says "with his stripes we are healed." Isaiah 53:5 and there are many more healing scriptures also in the bible
