It was an enormous crowd. Crowd of fear, doubt, uncertainty, and endless questions.

But when I heard about Jesus that blessed Sunday morning, that He was a healer and a deliverer, I elbowed my way through the crowd.

I heard of this Jesus once, or too many times. He was good. I knew Him well. But because of many things, both mundane and important, I kinda forgot who He really was. Or what He really meant to me.

I had suffered from flow of blood and even lost a life inside me. And perhaps, my heart kept on bleeding since. But when I heard of Jesus… that He is coming… that He was a healer… maybe… just maybe…

I rushed behind Him. No need to call His attention. No need for Him to know about me. I know He is preoccupied with so many things already.

I am now close… very close to Him. All I need is to touch the edge of His garment. Just a finger of a touch. That was all I need. And I know I will be all well.

Not minding the crushing crowd, I outstretch my arms to reach Him. Just a touch of His garment, of His power, of His love. It is all I need.

And then finally, I felt the end of his cloak…

I confess.  I failed to have a daily prayer time.

I believe praying should be as important and second nature as one’s daily brushing of teeth.  But sadly, for all the lame reasons,  I failed to be consistent on my commitment to a daily prayer time.

Prayer is the sustenance of the soul.  Our lifeline to the Creator who cares for us.  So much He cared that He allowed His Only Son to die on a cross to redeem us.

During my prayer time, I check the Scriptural reading for the day.  It helped me during my reflections.  Many of my greatest realizations  in life happen during my prayer times.

In Honor of the Great Man who will die this Friday…

For the Great Friend who sees my soul worthy of  shedding His Holy Blood…

For the Greatest Lover the world has ever known…

I post my favorite Bible verses…


“Do not be afraid – I will save you.

I have called you by name – you are mine.

When you pass through deep waters,  I will be with you;

your troubles will not overwhelm you.

When you pass through fire, you will not be burned;

the hard trials that come will not hurt you.

For I am the Lord your God, the holy God of Israel, who saves you.”

Isaiah 43: 1-3
