Blessings of Begging


…Jesus met a man with an advanced case of leprosy.

When the man saw Jesus,

he bowed with his face to the ground,

begging to be healed.

“Lord,” he said, “if you are willing,

you can heal me and make me clean.”

Jesus reached out and touched him.

“I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!”

And instantly the leprosy disappeared.

Luke 5:12-13
