The God who speaks through Scripture
Reading biblical stories about Jesus’ power to heal can hearten and encourage us. Reading these stories can offer hope. Here are two stories from the bible which show Jesus’ healing power which shows us that Jesus has compassion for the sick.
Reception, Year 1 and 2
Jesus Heals the Ten Lepers
Luke 17: 12- 16
“As he was going into a village, ten men with leprosy came toward him. They stood at a distance and shouted, ‘Jesus, Master, have pity on us!’ Jesus looked at them and said, ‘Go show yourselves to the priests.’ On their way, they were healed. When one of them discovered he was healed, he came back, shouting praises to God. He bowed down at the feet of Jesus and thanked him.”

Years 3, 4, 5 and 6
Touching his Cloak
Matthew 9:20 -22
“A woman who had been bleeding for twelve years came up behind Jesus and barely touched his clothes. She had said to herself, ‘If I can just touch his clothes, I will get well.’ Jesus turned. He saw the woman and said, ‘Don’t worry! You are now well because of your faith.’ At that moment, she was healed.”

Make the sign of the cross and say our Mission prayer. Read the story from Matthew above.
Draw a large cloak like the one Jesus was wearing and inside it write the following prayer or create your own.
I pray that my faith in you grows.
I feel you with me.
Give me the courage to ask for your help,
the way the sick woman did.
In Jesus’ name, I pray.
