A parent prays for a child's healing

Background: Jesus came to Cana, the area in Galilee where He had previously attended a wedding and, at His mother’s request, changed water into wine. Meanwhile, in Capernaum the son of a royal official had neared the point of death when the father came to Jesus with this request, a prayer: Lord, please be with my child before he dies! The Lord answered this prayer, saying the child would live, and the man believed Jesus. Obeying the Lord’s instructions to go home, the royal official met his servants along the way who told him the child had begun to recover – at the very hour Jesus had said, “Your son will live.” ©2013, Mary Sayler , prayer-a-phrase from John 4:46-54 ~~
