Jesus and Jairus Daughter

Jairus came running to Jesus and knelt down.

He said, "My only child is dying.  If you will come to her, she will live."

Jesus started following Jairus.

A man came up to Jairus and said, "Sir, your daughter has died.  There is no need for Jesus to come."

Jairus started crying.

Jesus kept walking with him.

"Do not worry," Jesus said.

When they got to Jairus's home, there were people standing all around crying.

"Why are you crying?"  Jesus asked.

"We are crying because Jairus's daughter died," they said.

"She isn't dead.  She is just sleeping," Jesus said.

Jesus took the little girl's hand and said, "Little girl, get up."

The girl sat up!

Jesus said, "Give her something to eat."

Jairus was so happy.


That was a wonderful story, wasn't it?

What do you think?

Did Jairus do the right thing?

Did you think Jesus could help the little girl?

Write to me and tell me what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.

Let's Pray:
Dear God,
You are so good.
Thank you for all that You do for me.
Always remind me that You are the answer to everything.
Help me to never forget.
This I ask through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Can you think of a better prayer?
