Jesus heals the hemorrhaging woman instantly and many others with the slightest touch of glance. God is always available and close by to each of us. All we need is the strength of faith to reach out.

It can be difficult to admit that we need anyone or anything. For some, it is particularly hard to acknowledge our dependence on God. Having an active faith means being vulnerable enough to need God.

O gracious God, may I celebrate my dependence on you today. Help me to accept my need for You, and guide me to ask for what I need most.
