Jesus Stories

The Woman Who Had Faith

There was this woman who had been sick for 12 years.

She went to many doctors.

She spent all her money on the doctors.

They could not heal her.

She only got worse.

She heard of Jesus and the many people he had healed.

She could not ask him to heal her.

She thought that he was much too busy to heal her.

She saw him!

He was walking with many people.

Then she thought, "If I could just touch his clothes, I would be healed."

She joined the crowd.

She tried to get close to him.

She pushed as close as she could.

She reached out her hand and touched his clothes.

In that instant she was healed!

Jesus stopped walking.

He turned around.

"Who touched me?" He asked.

Peter said," Look at all these people.  It could have been anyone."

Jesus waited.

The woman who had touched him was afraid that Jesus would be angry with her.

She began trembling.

She came forward.

She said to Jesus,"It was I that touched you."

She told him the whole story.

Jesus said to her, "You are healed now because you believed.  Go in peace."

That was something wasn't it?
What do you think?
Did the woman do the right thing?
Should she have asked Jesus to heal her?
Did you think that she would be healed just by touching Jesus' clothes?

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

Let's Pray:
Dear God,
 Thank you for giving us our health.
Thank you for making us well when we are sick.
Please help me to always believe in you.
This we ask through Christ Our Lord.
Amen

Can you think of a better prayer?
