12 Weeks of Prayer Week 11 Day 3


Rev. Dr. Teresa Allissa Citro

"As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken,

he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue,

Be not afraid, only believe.

Mark 5:36

Based on my moment of unbelief, God wants to showcase His glory His way just as He did one day in the life of a man named Jairus.

The Bible story of Jairus is found in Mark 5. The faith of this synagogue official, Jairus, is humbling to me. Let me explain what was happening. His little daughter was very ill. He needed a miracle. He had heard of this man Jesus who cured those who were ill. His daughter needed a miracle, and he personally went to ask the Miracle Man Himself, Jesus of Nazareth, to heal his daughter.

Jairus finally found Jesus. He approached Jesus with respect and honor. “'My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.'” He had such faith and power of assurance in his voice, along with a sense of urgency to go. Jesus doesn’t say one word. He just acted. “So Jesus went.”

On their way, someone touched the cloak of His garment and He stopped to find out who touched him. “Seriously, Jesus,” said His disciples, “There’s a multitude of people. Many, many, many people. How are you going to find who the person is?” Jesus seemed to have forgotten the little dying girl. He now stopped to deal with who touched His garment. He healed that woman.
