Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet and begged Him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.” – Mk 5:22-23

Jairus wasn’t a Christian; but he had confident faith in Jesus. He believed that if Jesus laid His hands on his daughter, she would be raised back to life. Because he believed, his daughter lived!

Faith activates the miraculous. Jairus didn’t ask Jesus if He could heal. He didn’t waste time wondering why God would allow is daughter to be sick. He simply sought out Jesus – God in the flesh – and invited Him into his life. The fruit of his confident faith was new life!

Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were overcome with great amazement. – Mk 5:42

Prayer:

Father, fill me with supernatural faith in Jesus’ name! I believe You are the Healer. All I need for healing to happen in my life is to invite You. Lord, come into my life. Heal every sickness, mend every broken part of me, and baptize me with new life, in Jesus’ name!
