 Power of Prayer

Why couldn’t the disciples cure the boy?

Jesus is definitive in his answer: “Only prayer can drive out this kind. Nothing else.

The father of the boy says to our Lord, “If Thou canst,”

Lord indirectly rebuking him for his want of faith, “If thou canst believe.”

“All things are possible,” Faith on the part of him who prays, makes all things possible of attainment, from the infinite power of God.

As long as we have faith in God we will rejoice in the end.

Pain and the varied difficulties of life need not be the final word for the follower of Jesus.

Pain often turns to joy, and in every small 'death' in life is the hope of rising into a deeper life with Jesus.

Enduring presence of the Risen Jesus with us at all times,  wherever we happen to be,
