“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 hem of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped. And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?”
When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’
But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.” Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.
And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.””
I got prayed over tonight by some dear men. My husband during his pray brought up this story and when I came back home I reread it. This story has always clung to my heart. For 12 years she had a blood disease. For 12 years I have. I’ve longed to touch the physical hem of Jesus, because I know, I know I would be wiped away of all disease. It gave me a renewed hope. The mighty men who prayed over me gave me a renewed hope. Renewed faith. This story means so much to me and I believe God wanted to remind me of it on this night.
These months have been hard I really feel like I haven’t had a purpose in this life. I got on Facebook and the loveliest of girls sent me this message:
I’m sure I’m not the first to take notice and or the first to say this, but..
Every part of who you are is the depiction of true and whole beauty. You are golden and radiant and it never stops. Like eternal flowers in a field. You are the best example I’ve seen of being the woman God has meant for you specifically to be.
P.S. Also you’re really funny lol
It made me laugh and weep. I’m sure not everyone feels this way but it is my deepest desire to be a light. Thank you sweet friend. We barely know each other, but you have blessed me this night on a whole new level.
I know there are a lot of people who read this who are also sick, and I just want to remind you how important it is to get prayer. It is so powerful and the Holy Spirit does mighty things through it.
The same sweet girl sent me this song. So thankful. Be blessed, my friends.
