All are welcome to join in the prayer.


Today’s Gospel offers us two stories of the healing miracles of Jesus showing up something of how God’s grace can enter our lives and transform our situations. We can all recall times when we were struggling, whether it be with a relationship of illness. We needed something to move us, to help us forgive, to help us walk away or relieve us of physical pain. In the end, it can be the simple gestures that save us: a kind word, someone praying for us, a gentle touch or we reach out to someone and like the woman with the haemorrhage, we suddenly feel within ourselves that we are healed.

The woman is physically healed through her faith-filled action but Jesus reaches out to her in another way by calling her "Daughter". He restores her status among the people. She would have been completely outcast in society because of her illness and Jesus does not let social convention dictate who he should or should not acknowledge. All are children of God. We are called to do the same, to reach out to those whom society declares "unclean" and those with whom we would rather not be associated. Jesus reminds the people of this woman’s true identity as a child of God.

As Mark returns to the account of Jairus’ daughter, we hear how Jesus restores the young girl to life with the simple words: "Talitha, Kum!" (Little girl, get up.) God’s grace is gentle yet can bring to life situations of death. What do you need healing from today? Ask the Lord for what you need.
