Mark 2: 4-5 (NIV)
Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”
In these uncertain times, we can take assurance that our God rules over the world and everything in it. No circumstance or condition is a surprise to Him. We know that he loves to see us live daily, even moment by moment, in complete dependence upon Him. He sees each and every need we have – the needs that are on the surface and the needs that are within are hearts. This is displayed perfectly in Mark 2: 4-5, when Jesus heals the paralyzed man both spiritually and physically.
The past few months have brought suffering upon many people. The effects of COVID-19, racial injustice, riots, and unrest have left so many people broken and in need of healing. Today, let us focus on praying for the physical, emotional, and spiritual healing of our brothers and sisters in Christ across Georgia.
- Pray for physical healing for all those who are suffering today from the physical impact of the novel coronavirus.
- Pray for emotional healing from the trauma and stress that this year has brought upon us.
- Pray for spiritual healing. Pray that God would set His Church on fire with a passion for the gospel among both preachers and people.
