The story of the healing of the daughter of Jairus reminds us that those who have nothing to lose are most unafraid to approach Jesus. Even though Jairus is a leader, his daughter if feared to be dead. He is willing to risk everything.

What can a believer do to become unafraid to approaching God? What holds me back? How can I become disposed enough to humility to let Jesus in?

O God, I beg for a docile Spirit. May Your presence in my life be my first recourse. I want to be courageous enough to risk everything and to reach out for you.
