Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for Caring people, For we live in a world that is self-seeking in all its way! I Thank the Lord for Purity, For we are called to cleanse ourselves of things that shall not last! I Thank the Lord for Higher Purpose, For we are not condemned to live a life that ends in Death!
It is Written, “While Jesus was still speaking, some people came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher anymore?” Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.” He did not let anyone follow him except Peter, James and John the brother of James. When they came to the home of the synagogue leader, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly. He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.” But they laughed at him. After he put them all out, he took the child’s father and mother and the disciples who were with him, and went in where the child was. He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”). Immediately the girl stood up and began to walk around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished. He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give her something to eat.” Mark 5:35-43
Prayer: I Pray Lord that you Continue to Teach us faith that is unwavering in the Face of death, I pray these things in Jesus Name, Amen!
