Matthew 17:14-16. Unable to Cure 7 Jul 2023

Mat 17:14 As they were rejoining the crowd
a man came up to him
and went down on his knees before him.
15 'Lord,' he said, 'take pity on my son:
he is demented and in a wretched state;
he is always falling into fire and into water.
16 I took him to your disciples
and they were unable to cure him.'

How I can relate to the disciples of Jesus. I regularly pray for the sick. And I am seeing very little result. Although I must mention that most 'patients' simply heal rapidly from their daily sicknesses.

I however do have a desire to see bigger healing happening.


Jesus, I ask for the gift of healing and for a mentor to instruct me.
