“One of the synagogue officials, named Jairus, came forward. Seeing him he fell at his feet and pleaded earnestly with him, saying, ‘My daughter is at the point of death. Please, come lay your hands on her that she may get well and live.’ He went off with him, and a large crowd followed him and pressed upon him.”
Enter into the official’s distress.
Notice Jesus’ response.
Hold before Jesus any unexpected sick and suffering person
you encounter or are aware of today.
Heritage word—“If you give more love to some than others, then it must be to the poorest, the most neglected and abandoned—those for whom no one cares.”
