In today’s Gospel, Mark 6:53-56, we are told that Jesus cured every disease among the people. It wasn’t magic and it wasn’t passive. Mark writes, “…(people) scurried about the surrounding country and began to bring in the sick on mats to wherever they hear He was.” In other words, people looked for Him. They sought Him out and brought their sick to Him for healing. They were people of faith. Mark writes, “… they laid the sick in the market places and begged Him that they might touch only the tassel on His cloak …” They were persistent in their entreaties, their prayer. And Mark concludes, “… and as many as touched it were healed.”
We need to do the same
- seek Jesus out in faith
- be persistent in our prayer
- and it needs to be humble prayer …. they begged Him!
- and we need to accept whatever He gives us/or not gives us.
- we pray to be healed according to His Will.
