The Healing of the Paralytic
surrounding the house in Capernaum must have been enormous for the four friends
to decide that the only way to get their paralyzed friend close to Christ was
to get him and his mat up on the roof of the dwelling and lower him into the
room. This was a genuine act of faith, acknowledged by Jesus through his words
Prayer: Lord, this is a powerful example of what it
means for me to be instrumental in bringing others closer to you.
