Luke 8:43-44 NKJV

“Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.”


-The story of the woman who was healed from her long time disease is a story of hope for many. She used up all her resources in different physicians as she sort for medical attention. I’m sure her discouragement was unmatched in her quest for healing. When she heard of Jesus probably she was not even sure that she would get well, but she took her chances. Since she had suffered shame and rejection, she continued to hide within the crowds even after she had received her healing. She only got a chance to touch the hem of Jesus’ garment and she immediately got well. Many among us are unwell and have suffered from disease and infirmity for a long time. Some move from one hospital to another, and from doctor to doctor seeking for help. A number have lost hope and lie on their beds waiting for the Lord to take them home. Others have a spark of hope as they read this message. Jesus said to the woman, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace” (Luke 8:48). The Lord is saying to you, “daughter/ son, be of good cheer, your faith has made you well, go in peace”. Jesus is our healer and deliverer. Jesus also healed the man by the pool of Bethesda who had suffered for thirty eight years (John 5:5-8). When we rely upon Jesus who heals all our diseases and restores our health, we are in safe hands, for nothing is impossible with God.


Heal us O Lord, and we shall be healed. Save us and we shall be saved, for You are the One we praise. You are our Jehovah Rapha, our healer, may You heal our wounds and restore our health dear Jesus. May You heal all those who are sick and suffering among us for by Your stripes we are healed. You sent Your word and healed our diseases, may You send Your word and heal all those who are sick in hospitals and at home. May You break every chain dear Master and cover us with Your precious blood. You are powerful to save us, may You hand of mercy touch every sick person. May You heal all those who are suffering from Ebola in Uganda. May You restore hope to the hopeless and renew their strength. May You protect all our school going children and grant them knowledge, wisdom and understanding as they study. We wait and trust in You Lord may You bless us and heal our land. Heal our nation dear Jesus from drought and famine and empower our leaders to execute Your mandate in this nation. Our Father who art in heaven; hallowed be Your name; Your Kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from evil; for thine is the Kingdom the power and the glory; forever and ever. Amen
