The song for this week is Touch the Hem of His Garment by Sam Cooke & The Soul Stirrers.
My prayers for family and friends usually consist of health and strength. I pray that ailments that affect their bodies will be only minor and nothing major will put them under heavy medication.
A woman in the bible went years with a medical issue that left her desperate; she had tried several doctors and even holistic medicine to cure it. This woman, weak and desperate, heard Jesus was coming through the city. Her faith was so strong to believe that if she could just touch the hem of his clothes she would be healed.
Wow! Is our faith that strong? Are we believing God for something? Are trusting Him for that spouse, house, car, or financial freedom? Let’s be like the woman and simply believe that Jesus can heal when the doctors cannot.
In Matthew 9:20-22 it states
And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: 21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. 22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
