Jesus was focused on his mission to bring goodness and healing to people who suffer.
My father was sick and in the hospital last month. Many of my family members, friends, and colleagues prayed for him. As men and women of God, we pray because we believe God hears our prayers. We believe that healing takes place when we have faith.
When we turn to Jesus with faith we receive forgiveness and healing. We even have the possibility of collaborating with Jesus in his healing work when we carry others to him, as the paralytic man’s friends carried him.
Whom do I carry to Jesus? Friends? Family members?
Let the healing power of Jesus touch everyone. Amen.
