When sickness, struggle or sin bear down upon us or those whom we love, ask Jesus to intercede. There may be times that the answer is no or not now but often we ‘have not’ because we ‘ask not’. It is the power of God given through the Savior that can bring us back to health, wholeness and service.

We don’t know Peter’s mom-in-law’s spiritual state before or after this healing but we can see that when Jesus healed her, she recognized it and returned care towards Christ.
