Everyone in the crowd was trying to touch Him, because power came forth from Him and healed them all. - Lk 6:29
Reflection. To this very day power goes out from Jesus and people are cured. There are many kinds of cures, however. Some take a long time to understand. Sometimes the pain of life makes a person more humble and pliable. Since we will all need a childlike spirit to enter the Kingdom, maybe God is doing us a favor by not giving us exactly what we want when we want it. Maybe He is preparing us for a greater gift.
Prayer. Dear Jesus, I certainly need You and I want to please You. Please cure me of my bodily ills as well as my spiritual sickness. I trust You to heal me in Your own way.
