It's a big jump to go from healing a woman with a fever to healing the demon-possessed. But somehow people had hope that if they brought people with any kind of sickness to Jesus he would heal them. Their hope was not misplaced. He healed all the sick.
For reflection: How did we get from the evidence of the gospels that a big part of Jesus' ministry was healing people to the state of many Christian churches today where it is not normal to pray for healing, except in a general way? When was the last time I prayed with someone for healing?
Let us pray. Jesus, I want to do your will. If that means praying with people to be healed, so be it. If I see someone this weekend who needs prayer for healing, even if they only have a cold or a fever, help me to be bold enough to offer to pray with them. Thank you for always being with me.
