As Jesus becomes well known for His mighty deeds, people flock to Him. He uses these acts of healing and salvation to make God’s presence real. The people come from everywhere. Even touching the hem of His garment changes everything.

Is there still a zeal for God in my life? Do I get excited about prayer? Do I have to drag myself to conversation with Jesus, or am I awed at the privilege of being in dialogue with God?

Dear Jesus, empower me to approach our relationship anew each time I pray. A mere passing glance Your way can change everything. May my prayer never become routine or ordinary.
