The Lord's desire is to heal us
Oh, Lord, we have another healing in today’s Gospel of a leper who began talking to Jesus by saying “If you wish…”
“Lord, you can make me clean,” and Jesus said, “I do wish it.” There is a willingness to be healed. Give me the grace this day, Lord to sincerely ask for what I need, where I need to be healed. Sometimes we ask but quietly think “not right now, Lord.”
Allow me Lord to sincerely request my need, and desire it with all my heart, right now. Give me the power of Your grace, O Lord, to mean what I pray. I kneel before You Lord, come and heal me.
