Prayer of the Day
Feast of St. Anthony Mary Claret, BishopOctober 24th, 2016
Infirmity, whether physical or spiritual, can befall us for a variety of reasons and God can use it for some purpose that we do not understand. When Jesus encountered an elderly woman who was spent of her strength and unable to stand upright, he gave her words of faith and freedom and restored her to health. Do you believe in the power of Jesus to release you from affliction or oppression? The Jewish leaders were so caught up in observance of the Sabbath that they lost sight of God’s mercy. Jesus healed on the Sabbath because God does not rest from showing his mercy and love, ever. God’s word has power to change us, spiritually and physically. Let the Lord speak his word to you and give you freedom.
Lord, you grant freedom to those who trust in you. Show me how I can bring your mercy and healing love to those in need around me. Amen
