29 Just then her haemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30 Instantly aware that power had gone out from him, Jesus turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?” 31 But his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing in on you; how can you say, ‘Who touched me?'” 32 He looked all around to see who had done it. 33 But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling, fell down before him, and told him all of the truth. 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has rescued you; go in peace, and be made healthy; your suffering is over.”
your suffering is over
People we know long to be rid of their suffering. They go from specialist to specialist, try every new drug on the market, but still stay frustrated and in pain. Are such people worth our time? Should we stop what we are doing long enough to pray for these people? Of course we should. They are the Lord’s sons and daughters. They are struggling to have faith while daily experiencing evidence against that faith. That kind of faith – in Jesus alone – can make them healthy again. We need to be assisting these suffering saints in our war rooms.
LORD, we are sending some suffering sons and daughters to you today. Restore them, to your glory.
