He Took Up Our Infirmities

"Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases..." - Psalm 103:2-3

A 1 Gift Cleanse Power created by ExampleRobot.

Description

The Priest's miracles have expanded into the treatment and curing of poisons and diseases. To do so, however, they require a ceremonial dedication (or often re-dedication) to the service of God. This takes one minute, during which The Priest and the patient pray together and perform some ritualistic bloodletting. The bloodletting wounds burn with holy, golden fire, attacking the sinful disease or poison and expelling it from the body.

System Active

Exert your Mind and spend 15 Minutes treating your patient. You may cure any diseases, poisons, etc, the target has, even if they don't have an existing mundane cure, and don't require a full diagnosis to do so. The disease or poison cannot be supernatural in nature. Must be within Arm's Reach of your target. The target must willingly submit to ritual bloodletting done by a blessed ceremonial dagger, causing a 1 point Injury to them, as well as engage in a minute of prayer.
