Wouldn’t it be great if we could bring a struggling friend or family member directly to Jesus to be healed?
Jesus has the authority to heal anything in our lives: the physical, the emotional and the spiritual. In today’s Gospel story - The Healing of the Paralytic - we are reminded to look around and pray for the ability to bring others to Jesus. It may be obvious when our loved ones are physically challenged but more often than not, they may be experiencing an emotional or spiritual paralysis that needs healing.
Do you know of a friend or family member who needs to be healed in some way? What kind of healing do they need – physical, emotional or spiritual? In your prayers, ask Jesus to heal them.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, let us pray for the words and strength to bring struggling friends and family members to Jesus for whatever healing they may need.
