Day 11 - What Do I Need Jesus to See Today?

Read Matthew 4:23-5:3

Jesus has just invited disciples to follow him, in spite of cultural norms.  He and his new disciples are taking huge risks.  Now Jesus travels around and preaches and heals; and people from all over everywhere are coming to hear him.

When He saw the crowds....

It's hard for me to read this and not feel disappointed.  I have dear friends who are sick, who are hurting in their bodies or their souls or both.  I have joined with hundreds, maybe thousands, to pray for miraculous healing for one suffering saint that did not receive it on this earth.  Why those but not this one?  It feels sometimes like Jesus doesn't see the crowds who need him right here, right now.

What do you need Jesus to see today?

Jesus, I kneel before you today broken and waiting.  I trust you.  I know you.  But today I am asking for you to see and act.  For all those who are suffering, perform miracles; if not by your Spirit and power alone, then through your people.  Cause us to move in generosity, courage and compassion to bring your healing to the hurting.  Show us how.  Miraculously move your Church to act.  For your sake I pray.
