Bible Fathers (4)

Jairus was a man who loved God. Our Bible Reading tells us that Jairus’ daughter was sick and dying. Jairus came to Jesus and begged Jesus to heal his daughter.
As Jesus was going to Jairus’ house, some men came and told Jairus that his daughter had died. But Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe” (verse 36b). Jesus went to Jairus’ house. He went to the room where Jairus’ daughter was. Jesus said, “‘Little girl, I tell you to stand up!’ The girl stood up and began walking” (verses 41b-42a).
Jairus went to Jesus because he knew that Jesus could help him. Sometimes when we have a problem, we work and work to solve the problem. Then when we don’t know what to do, we pray and ask for help. But we should pray first!
If you are facing problems today — financial problems, sickness, divorce, the death of a loved one — be sure to pray and ask God to help you.
