DAILY?READINGS: Exodus 30:11-38; Psalm 78:32-72; Acts 18:1-23

And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. Luke 8:46

The woman with the issue of blood had a great need, but she knew if she could just get close enough to touch Jesus’ garment, she would be healed. Anonymous among the multitudes that followed Jesus, she made her way towards Him and touched His garment. Though multitudes pressed around Him that day, Jesus recognized the touch of faith and said to the woman, “thy faith hath made thee whole” (Matt. 9:22). Do you have a need? Effectual fervent prayer is heard and answered by the Lord. —D. Pickup

I touched the heart of God in prayer, I lingered in His presence there,
I lost my heavy load of care, when in prayer I touched the heart of God.
—John W. Peterson
