Reading: Matthew 10: 5-14
Jesus' disciples were given important orders when they began their ministry. One of the things they were commissioned to do was to go out and heal the sick. I could have used them several years ago.
When I was in high school, on this very day, I was attending a district choir festival. For supper that night, we had meatloaf. It didn't taste too bad, at the time. But later that night, my roommate and I, as well as many other festival attendees, got sick from that meatloaf. I spent part of the night in the bathroom. It wasn't pretty.
When people are sick, we should remember them in our prayers. Just as Jesus' disciples healed in Biblical times, our Lord can heal today. Ask for God's healing touch for those who need it!
Closing: Pray for the sick and those who need God's healing.
