“While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said, “Your daughter is dead” (V35)

As a ruler in the synagogue and a leader among the people, Jairus understood beforehand that if he sought Jesus, there was a great possibility that he could lose his job, his office, his position and respect in society, his income, and be stripped of all responsibilities. But the Bible declares that Jairus came to Jesus and besought him greatly begging Him to take time for his daughter. His only desire was for his girl to live and be well once again. A man as desperate as Jairus had most likely already sought the help of every doctor he would find, but to no avail. He said “I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her that she may be healed, and she shall live.” He was convinced that if only Jesus would come to his house and lay His hands on his little girl, she would be healed. He had faith for the miracle. Even today many choose not to come to Jesus because they are afraid of losing something – friends, a job, respect, or some status in society. Jairus desire for his daughter to live surpassed any fear of loss that could oppose him. He overcame the fear of loss and moved closer to his miracle. (Benny Hinn)

PRAYER LINE: Whatever, Lord, we lend to Thee, Repaid a thousand-fold will be; Then gladly will we give to Thee. Who givest all – who givest all. – C. Wordsworth



No matter how much you give you can’t out give God
