Asking Jesus for some healing
Gospel of Matthew Ch 9 v- 18 thru 22
18 While (Jesus) was saying these things to them, an official came forward, knelt down before him, and said, “My daughter has just died. But come, lay your hand on her, and she will live.” 19 Jesus rose and followed him, and so did his disciples. 20 A woman suffering hemorrhages for twelve years came up behind him and touched the tassel on his cloak. 21 She said to herself, “If only I can touch his cloak, I shall be cured.” 22 Jesus turned around and saw her, and said, “Courage, daughter! Your faith has saved you.” And from that hour the woman was cured.
Why do people wait to ask God for healing until it seems too late? Though God has proved time-and-time again that He can raise the dead and heal any infirmity if we just believe and hear Jesus say, “Your faith has saved you.” If you can’t believe in His Word but still expect Him to answer, then know His forgiveness is real either way for in His Redemption you can and will encounter God once this surrender takes place. Will it be constant or just lukewarm? Why do others seem to ignore God but still call on Him when they are sick or become involved in an accident no matter the plight we often wait until they occur because we believe that it is never too late to call on the Name of our Lord though He opens His arms with warmth and affection His Will lived then might seem like an objection when your breath and heart cease to function. Are you ready to live for Him no matter the situation? Can you accept His Will of whatever He gives to you and whatever He keeps from you for whatever reason He feels necessary? Will your faith save you in the end of opposition you have lived against Redemption? Amen.
I for one surrendered some 20 years ago. I was at my last breath wanting anger and my bodily self abuse to stop. I was willing to die to rid myself of this pain and shame of excess that was thrusted upon me by a trauma of sexual abuse. I thought it was something I couldn’t resist how to rid myself of this feeling of anger and loss of self control. I didn’t want anyone to know either as I lived in a state of denial that I was willing to act like someone else when I wasn’t around family, friends or foes, I wasn’t willing to share what I felt was unexplainable. But God knew and described to me the joy of living Redeemed in His Blood. I knew what to do by following His Word in practice each day listening to Him as I talked to Him in prayer in every opportunity I could muster wanting it to be constant as He Commands then learning from this how to proclaim with the beauty of Salvation. I heard Him in poetry that resulted from my practice each day and I remain committed to serving the Only Way to Heaven by this practice, prayer and proclamation of being Spirit-led God-inspired Christ-fed until the day He calls me home. I know He will use me for this type of healing from others need of release from the anger and pain of shame every soul wants to refuse until Redemption claims their faith releasing their love by the hope of His mercy and grace. Amen.
Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others dealing with the war in Ukraine. In the Holy Spirit we pray our brothers in Kairos especially a prayer for our men in blue. We pray for our sister-in-law Carmen. She is the grandmother of Brittany who we speak healing prayers for daily who overcame brain cancer. We pray for Holy Mother Church. We pray for our Holy Mother in the name of Louie. Daily prayers for our neighbor Thelma. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.
I am a poet obedient to Christ,

**Asking Jesus for some healing**
Forward came official kneeling
Asking Jesus for some healing
Died daughter mine he was still reeling
Hand Yours lay come live will she breathing
Jesus followed without question
Went to heal girl by His inspection
Walking behind a woman touched Him hoping to be healed
Hemorrhage sufferings cured be shall I cloak His touch Jesus would reveal
Her noticed by Jesus He wouldn’t conceal
Daughter have courage Jesus would squeal
You saved by your faith history concealed
Cured woman from that hour revealed
