Her Healing Faith



She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.”

Matthew 9:21



Her Healing Faith


For twelve long years – shunned

for a wound that would not heal

When the Word in flesh walked her way

what else, but hope, to feel?


She did the unthinkable

 Untouchable she’d so long been

Her humble and trembling hand

 tentatively touched his hem – unseen


He knew not only her hearts cry

plus years of tears in plea

but also each line and crease of her palm

 acquainted with her intimately


While others denied it was them

who dared to touch his cloak

She fell trembling at his feet

 emboldened by healing she spoke


Jesus needed no answer

for he knew before she’d tell

His desire was to give her blessing

upon her faith that made her well.




Have you ever experienced the healing hand of the Lord in a way that let you know it was definitely from him and definitely in response to your faith? Here is a link to a post where I shared about an answer to a personal prayer of my own twelve years in waiting…

Healing Blessings ~ Wendy


Dear Healer of hearts and broken bones,

Help us to believe that You are able to do anything. May we come to You humbly and with faith that whatever the answer You give to our prayers is – it is enough. You are all that we need.



Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed from that moment.

Matthew 9:22

  1. Hi,
    Just wanted to say that I was reading the words in your post when Van Morrison’s Healing Game came on my stereo! The angels even provided a soundtrack for me – I feel blessed. Peace.

  2. Wow-wonderful words, Wendy! I was struck especially by the idea that Jesus knows every line and crease of my palm–oh that’s good!! God bless you abundantly–love, sis Caddo

  3. I have come to love this story more and more as I realize both the power of touch to heal as well as how well-placed our faith is in him! I love that he is God of the untouchable, that he walked among all, and that humble faith was and still is our link to him.

    There have certainly been times when I know his touch of love, of grace, of forgiveness were the only reasons for healing and subsequent growth! Thank you for reminding me of those times!

    I was glad to read that your seminar was a blessing! I am sure good things will pour out of you as a result, to minister to others! I am thankful for our blogging friendship! –Alison

    • Alison, I always find that lady’s story deeply touching. She had reached the end of her rope and finances trying to get better.

      Blessings dear friend!

  4. This is one of my favorite Bible stories. Thanks so much for your beautiful post on it. What a precious reminder of His wonderful provisions and care for us. Thanks, Wendy for sharing from your love for the Lord!

  5. I have always loved that story. I have an idea in the back of my mind of how to portray her in a novel setting – just haven’t written it yet! My dramatic answers to prayer for healing haven’t been for anything physical – my journey takes a different form than that. I will have to check out your post about your own story!
