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

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.
