Jesus healed. I enjoy rereading every year the times Jesus healed people. I’m glad there are the four Gospel books at the beginning of the New Testament in which the stories are each told by different people.

Jesus healed a man who could not hear and had problems speaking. I pray this for me personally today:

Jesus, heal me ~ my hearing and my back. Thank you. Thank you already for Your great love toward me in answered prayer.

Mark 7:

32 A deaf man with a speech impediment was brought to him, and the people begged Jesus to lay his hands on the man to heal him.

33 Jesus led him away from the crowd so they could be alone. He put his fingers into the man’s ears. Then, spitting on his own fingers, he touched the man’s tongue. 34 Looking up to heaven, he sighed and said, “Ephphatha,” which means, “Be opened!” 35 Instantly the man could hear perfectly, and his tongue was freed so he could speak plainly!

36 Jesus told the crowd not to tell anyone, but the more he told them not to, the more they spread the news. 37 They were completely amazed and said again and again, “Everything he does is wonderful. He even makes the deaf to hear and gives speech to those who cannot speak.”
