Matthew 9:18-25New Living Translation (NLT)
Jesus Heals in Response to Faith
18 As Jesus was saying this, the leader of a synagogue came and knelt before him. “My daughter has just died,” he said, “but you can bring her back to life again if you just come and lay your hand on her.”
19 So Jesus and his disciples got up and went with him. 20 Just then a woman who had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding came up behind him. She touched the fringe of his robe, 21 for she thought, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.”
22 Jesus turned around, and when he saw her he said, “Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well.” And the woman was healed at that moment.
23 When Jesus arrived at the official’s home, he saw the noisy crowd and heard the funeral music. 24 “Get out!” he told them. “The girl isn’t dead; she’s only asleep.”But the crowd laughed at him. 25 After the crowd was put outside, however, Jesus went in and took the girl by the hand, and she stood up!
Dear Father, It takes faith to move a mountain. If I have faith and do not doubt, I can ask in your name to move a mountain. You tell me to ask and do not doubt, and it will be done according to your will. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Thank you for your Word and Truth. I can trust what you say to be true. Thank you. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
