Friday

Read Luke 7:11-17

11 Soon afterwardse Jesus went to a town called Nain, accompanied by his disciples and a large crowd. 12Just as he arrived at the gate of the town, a funeral procession was coming out. The dead man was the only son of a woman who was a widow, and a large crowd from the town was with her. 13When the Lord saw her, his heart was filled with pity for her, and he said to her, “Don’t cry.” 14Then he walked over and touched the coffin, and the men carrying it stopped. Jesus said, “Young man! Get up, I tell you!” 15The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.
16 They all were filled with fear and praised God. “A great prophet has appeared among us!” they said; “God has come to save his people!”
17 This news about Jesus went out through all the country and the surrounding territory.

Think

This is an interesting story.  Nobody expresses faith or asks for Jesus to help.  Jesus initiates everything.  His heart is filled with pitty so he acts out of compassion.
Sometimes God answers your prayers before you've prayed them.

Pray

Thank you for your grace and compassion to me.  You have answered many prayers before I even prayed them.
