Matthew 8:1-4New Living Translation (NLT)
Jesus Heals a Man with Leprosy
8 Large crowds followed Jesus as he came down the mountainside. 2 Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached him and knelt before him. “Lord,” the man said, “if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.”
3 Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared. 4 Then Jesus said to him, “Don’t tell anyone about this. Instead, go to the priest and let him examine you. Take along the offering required in the law of Moses for those who have been healed of leprosy. This will be a public testimony that you have been cleansed.”
Dear Father, I will follow you. I can approach you as I stand boldly in Jesus before the throne. I kneel before you honoring you and respecting you and your authority. If I am willing, you heal me and make me clean. I am willing. You are my Lord and Savior. You are my Redeemer. You are my God. Thank you for your compassion and love. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
