Lord Will You Make Me Clean?
Matthew 8:1-4 NIV
1When Jesus had come down from the mountain, great crowds followed him; 2 and there was a leper who came to him and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, if you choose, you can make me clean.” 3 He stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I do choose.

There was a little boy demon possessed and they brought him to Jesus. Jesus asked how long has he been like this? And his father said, “From childhood. It has often cast him into the fire and into the water, to destroy him; but if you are able to do anything, have pity on us and help us.” Jesus said to him, “If you are able!—All things can be done for the one who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out, “I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:20-24). God provided deliverance for the man’s son because he believed. We in our world must believe on the God who can do the impossible. He will provide salvation to anyone who puts their trust in the Savior of the world Jesus the
