DayLight Scripture – Now when Jesus had come down from the mountain, large crowds followed him. A man with a skin disease came, kneeled before him, and said, “Lord, if you want, you can make me clean.” Jesus reached out his hand and touched him, saying, “I do want to. Become clean.” Instantly his skin disease was cleansed.
Matthew 8: 1-3
DayLight Prayer – Lord, Thank you for your healing. At times it is our bodies that need it, at times our minds, and many times it is our hearts that need your healing touch. For all who need healing, Lord, in your mercy, hear my prayer. Amen.
DayLight Scripture – People were bringing children to Jesus so that he would bless them. But the disciples scolded them. When Jesus saw this, he grew angry and said to them, “Allow the children to come to me. Don’t forbid them, because God’s kingdom belongs to people like these children. I assure you that whoever doesn’t welcome God’s kingdom like a child will never enter it.” Then he hugged the children and blessed them.
Mark 10: 13-16
DayLight Prayer – Lord, Bless all the children today; those who are sick, cranky, full of mischief, sad, sassy, big, small, self-assured, and timid. Bless them for the wonderful spirits they have, and help them to enjoy the day fully. Help us to protect each one and welcome them as they come to you. Amen.
