Day 27: A Way to Pray: Pray for the Impossible

“Is anything too hard for the LORD?... (Genesis 18:14). 

“Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible.” - Corrie ten Boom

What is impossible in your life?

Do you face an impossible situation? Have you been diagnosed with a disease impossible to cure? Are you facing an impossible economic problem? Do you feel it is impossible for one of your family members to ever turn to God?

In Mark chapter five, we find the story of the woman with the issue of blood. She faced an impossible situation. For twelve long years she suffered with her disease. She spent all her money on the doctors. The doctors took her money but offered her no hope. They told her she would recover. In fact, she continued to get worse.

But one day, she heard about Jesus. She heard how Jesus healed the blind and the crippled. She said to herself, “If I can just touch the edge of his garment, I will be healed.”

In the midst of her impossible situation, she put her eyes on Jesus. She pushed through a crowd of people and managed to touch the edge of his clothes. Immediately, she was cured of her suffering.

Jesus turned around and asked, “Who touched me?” The disciples were confused. They said, “Jesus, you are in the middle of a crowd, hundreds of people are touching you.” But Jesus knew that her touch was different. Many people were touching Jesus, but this woman touched him with her faith.

The woman identified herself to Jesus and told him what she had done. Jesus said to her, “Your faith has saved you. Go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”

Jesus turned her impossible situation into a miracle. Jesus will do the same for you. Whatever situation you are facing today, know that with God all things are possible.

I encourage you to use your faith to reach out and touch Jesus right now. Believe God for the impossible! Believe God for your miracle!
