LORD, find us and mercy us!

Since I have worked as a chaplain at a general hospital in Atlanta, GA, USA, I have met patients and medical staff daily. Sometimes, I feel lonely among scores of people around me. The patients and staff may sometimes feel the same way as I did. 


I found a lady who was sick for 12 years. Her multiple and seamless attempts to get well didn't succeed. Her best efforts didn't work out. Jesus told us a story about a lady patient in the Bible:


There was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, 

and who had suffered much under many physicians and had spent all that she had,

and was no better but rather grew worse.


She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garments.

For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.


And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease.

And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone out from him, immediately turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my garments?” (Mark 5:25-30)


When I listened to Jesus my LORD, I was deeply moved by what He did for her, the sick lady for 12 years. He immediately turned about in the crowd. He was on the way to visit a dying girl who was 12 years old. Her father was one of the rulers of the synagogue. The crowd followed Jesus closely to see what would happen to the girl. This lady and her life were not concerned at all with anyone but Jesus! Our LORD turned about to find her! Oh, LORD, turn about and find me, mercy me. Count my tears, LORD!


Jesus my LORD said, "Who touched my garments?" He was looking for the sick lady for 12 years. He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease." (Mark 5:34) 


Dear my fellow workers, let us come close to the LORD who leads us in green pastures. Oh, LORD, mercy on me, mercy on us, mercy on sinners, and mercy on the sick! Amen.
