This story has got to be one of the greatest in history. Mark 5: 25-34

Sickness is something we have come to be accustomed with since we live in a fallen world. We know that when our child becomes ill, parents suffer sleepless nights. This also usually becomes a time of challenge but also a time of test for the family.

We know young children are prone to falling ill, and we have two of them. At 20months apart, we find outselves having to separate them once one of our boys fall ill, to no avail! It is also quite usual when all family members fall ill, one after another.

Last month, my checkup led to doctor's diagnosis that I have asthma. My husband has childhood asthma. My elder son has constipation and does not like to poo. It has been almost 2years now that he has this issue. My younger son had bronchitis when he was only 9months old. I am praying for healing for my family. I am praying according to the woman's faith in this story.

25And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. 26She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. 27When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28because she thought, "If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed." 29Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.

30At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?"

31"You see the people crowding against you," his disciples answered, "and yet you can ask, 'Who touched me?' "

32But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. 33Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. 34He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering."
