Many people who knew Jesus when He was on earth, had tremendous faith in Him; they didn’t doubt He was the Son of God.
On one occasion a man told Jesus his daughter had just died but he added, “Come and lay your hand on her and she will live”.
Jesus went to his house took the girl by the hand and restored her to life. (Matthew 9:18)
Jesus is still among us today but how often do I forget to ask Him for His help? How focused is my faith?
Maybe I think my achievements are my own!
God our Father, help me to nurture and develop my faith and love for You to its full. May I never forget your constant presence by my side.
Prayer: Day-by-Day (St Richard of Chichester)
Praise be to Thee, O Lord Jesus Christ
For all the benefits you have given us,
for all the pains and insults which you have borne for us.
O most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother,
May, we see you more clearly,
Love you more dearly,
and follow You more nearly.
Day by day. Amen
