Jesus Heals a Paralyzed Boy

Jesus did lots of traveling.

He would preach everywhere he would go.

One day, he was in Capernaum.

There was a boy that lived there that couldn't walk.

His friends decided to take him to see Jesus.

There were so many people in the house where Jesus was preaching, they couldn't get inside.

So they climbed to the top of the house and lowered their friend through a hole in the roof.

Jesus saw the boy on a stretcher.

He knew the boy couldn't walk.

Jesus said to the boy, "Get up and walk home."

The boy got up from his stretcher and ran through the crowd.

Jesus performed another miracle!

What do you think?

Did you think Jesus could make him walk?

Did the friends do the right thing to take their friend to see Jesus?

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

Let's Pray:
Dear God,
Please, remind me to turn to you when I need help.
I know you can always help me.
Thank you for caring when I am sick.
Thank you for my mother and father.
This I ask through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Can you think of a better prayer?

You can find this story in 
Matthew 9:1-8,
Mark 2:1-12,
Luke 5: 17-26
Write to me, please
