How Can I Pray for Those Who Are Ill and Dying?
When we see people in pain, we want to help. We want to make everything better. That is a noble intuition that reflects a good creator God. When Jesus encountered people dealing with hurts, He very often brought His healing touch. His life and proclamation promised a new creation where there will be no pain, fear, or tears. Nevertheless, it was but a taste. Those He healed still died; their temporary healing pointed toward a full and final renewal that has not yet come.
