So Jesus went with him. A large crowd followed and pressed around him. And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?”
“You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?’ ”
But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”
As I was writing the post yesterday called Blessed by a bleeding heart there was a phrase that I had typed that kept resonating in my heart. “…praying for a family who is hanging on to the hem of Jesus’ robe…”. Kelly and her family need urgent prayer as she heads into her 33rd week of pregnancy with baby Aaron. She has been diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia and is no longer producing red or white cells. I believe this scripture is the reason that phrase was the very one God planted in that blog yesterday. Please pray for Kelly, her husband Aaron, their two children and the little one who is on the way. In full faith, this woman touched the hem of Jesus’ garment and was instantly healed of her bleeding disorder and in full faith we need join together in prayer to claim the same for Kelly.
