28 Day Challenge, Day 20 - Take Your Medicine
28 Day Challenge
Take Your Medicine
Medication:Healing Scriptures with Praises to God
Prescription:Take 3 times daily until all symptoms are
Effects:A desire for more Scriptures
will occur. Take as many as you desire.
The time to take your medicine that God provided is

I’ve ever heard.
fell asleep. I don’t remember how much time past, maybe an hour or two, but I had
awakened in a sweat.The fever broke,
and I felt absolutely great.I got up
and rejoiced for Jesus is my healer!
