“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 8:2

TODAY’S WORD…

.

“Lord,” the leper said,

“if You are willing, You can heal me and make me clean.”

.

– Matthew 8:2 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

Leprosy is a vivid image of sin:

it is ugly, disgusting, very contagious and difficult to cure.

We are all sinners

and we are all in need of God’s forgiveness and grace.

.

The leper in the Gospel knelt down before Jesus,

in all humility and trust,

begging to be made clean.

.

If we can go before our Saviour with that kind of faith,

we can be sure than He will cure the wretchedness of our souls.

.

In that quiet room, let us prostrate ourselves before Christ

and, with a humble and contrite heart,

utter this short prayer, borrowed from the leper:

“Lord, if You are willing, You can heal me and make me clean.”

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, if You are willing, You can heal me and make me clean.
