It came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy; who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. - Luke 5:12 (KJV)
In today’s reading, we find a man confronted with bad news: he has been struck by a painful and incurable disease. The effects of leprosy (now called Hansen’s Disease) are visible on the skin: blemishes, wounds, and bruises that in severe cases disfigure the body. Can we find any good...
I can find hope for healing in Jesus.
Those with Chronic diseases

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
