These instructions are not empty words—they are your life! By obeying them you will enjoy a long life in the land you will occupy when you cross the Jordan River.”

Reading: Luke 7:1-7 (NLT)

When Jesus had finished saying all this to the people, he returned to Capernaum. At that time the highly valued slave of a Roman officer was sick and near death. When the officer heard about Jesus, he sent some respected Jewish elders to ask him to come and heal his slave. So they earnestly begged Jesus to help the man. “If anyone deserves your help, he does,” they said, “for he loves the Jewish people and even built a synagogue for us.”

So Jesus went with them. But just before they arrived at the house, the officer sent some friends to say, “Lord, don’t trouble yourself by coming to my home, for I am not worthy of such an honor. I am not even worthy to come and meet you. Just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed.

Prayer:

Lord God: You are the giver of life; Your laws are always right!

+ Give me understanding, Lord, and I shall enjoy a long life in the place You have given me.

+ Give me understanding, Lord, and I will welcome Your word into my life.

+ Give me understanding, Lord, and I will receive Your power into my life.

Lord God: Speak Your word in me and through me to a world that is dying for want of knowledge of You. Send forth Your word and heal them. Let Your glory be over all the earth.
