LISTEN NOW:

Narrator:

Have you ever been so desperate that you just didn't know what to do? Meet Jairus, a very worried father.

(Crowd sounds)

Jairus:

Excuse me, Sir. Jesus, please help me. I need your help for my daughter.

Jesus:

Who are you?

Jairus:

My name is Jairus. I am a synagogue ruler. I have only one daughter, and she is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so that she will be healed and will live. Please come, Jesus.

Jesus:

All right, I will come with you.

Jairus:

Thank you. Come, I will show you the way.

(Crowd noises)

Narrator:

But Jairus's daughter wasn't the only one who needed healing.

Woman:

That's Him. That's Jesus in the crowd of people. I have been bleeding for twelve long miserable years. I have spent all of my money, and no doctor has been able to heal me. Perhaps if I just quietly touch His robe, Jesus will be able to heal me. I will try.

(Crowd sounds)

Woman:

Oh, oh my. I can feel it. The bleeding has stopped. I am healed!

Jesus:

Wait, who just touched me?

Disciples:

Who touched you? Jesus, you see the people crowding against you. How can you ask, 'Who touched me?'

Jesus:

I want to know who touched me.

Narrator:

Jesus kept looking around at the crowd. He waited to see who had touched Him. Then the woman came forward and fell at His feet.

Woman:

I am so afraid, but I will tell you the truth. I touched your robe because I was so sick and no one could heal me. I thought that if I touched your robe, your power would heal me.

Jesus:

Dear woman, your faith has healed you. Go in peace. You are free from your suffering.

(Crowd noise)

Servants:

Excuse us, we are looking for Jairus.

Jairus:

Here I am.

Servants:

Sir, your daughter has died. Why bother Jesus anymore?

Jesus:

Do not listen to them. Don't be afraid, Jairus, just believe. We will go to your house.

(Sounds of crying)

Jesus:

Why are you all sobbing? The child is not dead. She is only sleeping.

(Sounds of laughing, crying, disbelief)

Jesus:

Everyone must go outside. Only the child's mother and father will come with me.

Narrator:

Then Jesus, the girl's parents, and several of the disciples went into the dead girl's room. Jesus took the girl's hand.

Jesus:

Little girl, I say to you, get up!

Narrator:

Right away the girl stood up and walked around. Everyone was amazed.

Jesus:

Give her something to eat! And don't tell anyone what happened here today.

(Music transition)

Narrator:

Jesus used his power to heal people. Absolutely nothing is too hard for Jesus to heal.
