Start Your Year on Sure Footing 2022, Gospel of Matthew, Day 17 of 58
23 When Jesus came to the leader’s house and saw the flute-players and the crowd making a commotion, 24 he said, ‘Go away; for the girl is not dead but sleeping.’ And they laughed at him. 25 But when the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took her by the hand, and the girl got up. 26 And the report of this spread throughout that district.
Jesus does not give up on people who others may have given up on.
I need to appeal to Jesus in my prayers to help people in my life when I may feel stuck in my relationship with them.
Lord Jesus, Our Great Physician, your healing power is awesome and comforting. Thank you for giving me hope that you can help my friends and family even when I have given up or feel stuck. In Your Holy Name I pray. Amen.
