Ready When You Call

"Your Father knows what you need before you ask him."
   - MATTHEW 6: 8

Jesus asked the paralyzed man who'd come to the pool of Bethesda to be healed, "Do you want to get well?"

The man responded, "Sir, I have no one to help me into the pool…. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me"(John 5: 6 –7).

The man was focused on what he lacked.

He lacked a friend to help him.

Lacked the strength to do it on his own.

But while he focused on what he didn't have, he overlooked the fact that Jesus was standing right there!

If you truly want to be made whole, then look to Jesus.

Lean on Jesus.

He is right there, ready to help when you call."

O my Jesus, you have said:

"Truly I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father in my name, he will give it to you."

Behold, in your name, I ask the Father for the grace of…

(Mention your Intention Here)

Stay Strong! :)
