Monday of the Fourth Week of Lent

A distraught father begged Jesus, “Sir, come down before my child dies.” Jesus replied, “You may go; your son will live.” The power of Jesus’ word and the faith of the father combined in an immediate healing discovered the next day when “the father realized that just at that time Jesus had said to him, ‘Your son will live.’” 

God has shared the gift of healing with all of us. Are we using that gift? Certainly, we have all prayed for the sick and injured. Such prayer is often at a distance by necessity or by hesitancy. Could you draw closer to the person, touch the person, and pray for a cure? Your combination of faith and courage may result in the desired healing. After all, we continue the work of Jesus Christ through the power of the Spirit, the “sweet anointing from above.”
