Scripture Reading: Matthew 9:18-26
Jesus raised the ruler’s daughter from the dead
While he was saying this, a synagogue leader came and knelt before him and said, “My daughter has just died. But come and put your hand on her, and she will live.”
Jesus got up and went with him, and so did his disciples. Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak.
She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.
When Jesus entered the synagogue leader’s house and saw the noisy crowd and people playing pipes, he said, “Go away.
The girl is not dead but asleep.” But they laughed at him. After the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took the girl by the hand, and she got up. News of this spread through all that region.
The Gospel of the Lord: Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.
Father in Heaven, have mercy on us and on the whole world. We come to you today with our fears and concerns — You know what’s in our hearts.
We love You, trust You, we need You. We ask You to be with us. Stay with us. Help us through these times of uncertainty and sorrow. We know you are the Divine Physician, the healer of all.
And so we ask that you bring your loving and healing presence to all those who are sick and suffering right now.
Please comfort them. Please be with the grieving families of those who have passed away.
Please have mercy on those who have died, may they be with You in heaven.
Please stand at the side of all medical professionals who are putting themselves at risk while they work to bring healing to others.
Lord, we are scared and we are sorrowful. Please heal us. Send us your peace and overwhelming presence. (Mention your intentions here)
Mary, Undoer of Knots, please pray for the knot of this virus to be undone for the greater glory of God! Jesus, we thirst for You.
You chose to enter this world as a vulnerable baby. Be with the most vulnerable now.
Help us to continue to return to You with our whole hearts throughout this ordeal. Amen.
