10On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, 11and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. 12When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, "Woman, you are set free from your infirmity." 13Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.
Was that passage written about me? Was it written about you? I bet it was written for both of us. I've spent 30+ years crippled spiritually. I am constantly amazed that I can walk today. Somedays I limp. And from time to time, my back aches. But I am estatic that I am no longer spiritually cripple.
I am sure that there were so many times that others prayed for me without my knowing it. So let me pray for you today.
Father, please bless everyone that my hands have touched. Please grant them grace and mercy. Please pour Your love, joy, and peace into their lives. Let them get a glimpse of Your awesomeness. Break them, Lord. If you find anything in them that is unholy, take it from them. If they have an addiction to anything that is contrary to Your plans for them, let them lose their taste for it. God, please cover them and grant them Mercy and Grace. Let the future be the best days of their lives and make them whole. In Your name I pray, Amen.
