Prayer for Matthew 8

Heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus is the Friend of sinner, the Healer of the sick and the Saviour of the world. Thank You that I have been redeemed from the slave-market of sin and received health and healing.. like the leper who worshipped at Christ's feet and was cleansed by the gracious touch of His hand. Thank You that You sent Jesus to preach the gospel to the poor, proclaim release to the captives, give recovery of sight to the blind, free the oppressed and proclaim the favourable year of the Lord. Thank You for His healing touch on my life. I pray that I may be used by You in Your unfolding plan of redemption, and for His name's sake, AMEN.

“And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.”
(Matthew 8:3)

Heavenly Father, thank You for the beautiful example of the Centurion's faith, who thrilled the Lord Jesus with His demonstration of trust in Christ, and hope in His word. Help me to fine-tune my faith in You, by standing firmly on Your unchanging and unchangeable promises.. even when circumstances appear to contradict Your word. I pray that my faith would grow and mature and that nothing would cause me to doubt You - in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

“And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.”

Help me to daily abide in Christ - to rest in His love, to depend upon Him in every situation in which I find myself, and to give You all my concerns and worries, in the knowledge that nothing can swamp the the life.. of which Christ is Captain and Lord. AMEN.

“And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.”
