_"She had heard the reports about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. For she said, If I touch even his garments, I shall be made well. And immediately the hemorrhage ceased; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease."(Mark 5:27-29)_

_*When we study the Scripture, we find examples of men and women who have followed God with faith and they will definitely become an inspiration to anyone who chooses to follow the way of God.*_

_The story in the gospel reading of today is about faith and what it can do in our lives. The woman with the issue of blood approached Jesus with faith and touched His garment and she was instantly healed. Jairus also approached Jesus with faith and asked for his daughter who was at the point of death to be healed and brought back to life and Jesus did it for him._

_*These are stories that move the heart when it is told. They both sought after Jesus in humility at their point of need. They had faith in Him to help them and their faith in Christ did bring the miracle they were seeking.*_

_To come to Jesus in prayer without faith is like going to ask someone for water but you have no container to take the water. We touch God with faith and when our faith is firmly fixed on Him, there is nothing it cannot obtain for us._

_*A touch of faith changes everything. Jesus has come to give us life, healing, restoration, justice, peace, mercy, forgiveness, prosperity, upliftment and joy. We must come to Him with faith if we are going to receive the miracle we seek.*_

_What is your need? How long have you waited for help? Rise up today, activate your faith, touch the Lord with it and you will see God's miracle manifest in your life and family. Jesus will go with you as he went with Jairus and He will do all things well for you. A touch of faith truly changes everything for good._

_*Good morning dearest one. Smile😊as you do your work and do have happy day and a blessed new month. May Jesus grant you the miracle you seek as you put your trust in Him. Amen. And may the Almighty God bless you: the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.*_

*Meditation:* 2 Samuel 18:9-10,14,24-25,30-19:3/Psalm 86:1-6/Mark 5:21-43

*Watch-Word:* Turn your ear, O Lord, and answer me

*Jesus is near to those who put their trust in Him, touch Him with your faith and you will see his power in action.*
