Lent Day 4: Follow Me!

Rev Michael Anokye: 17TH FEBRUARY 2024



Dear God, we pray for the courage to confront every difficulty with endurance and walk confidently in your ways. We pray that we always remember your faithfulness and pledge to be with us every step of the road. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.

READING: Luke 5:27-32 After these things He went out and saw a tax collector named Levi, sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, “Follow Me.” So he left all, rose up, and followed Him. Then Levi gave Him a great feast in his own house. And there were a great number of tax collectors and others who sat down with them. And their scribes and the Pharisees complained against His disciples, saying, “Why do You eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” Jesus answered and said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”

Jesus is the ultimate healer who can fix any trouble of our spirits. His advice is simple yet powerful: “Follow me.” Jesus invites everyone to follow him, especially those who need his mercy. As per His teachings, only the sick require the care of a physician, not the healthy. So, if you want to know if you have shown signs of spiritual sickness, ask yourself, “In what ways have I been neglecting my spiritual well-being?”


By placing my hope in Jesus, I am praying for your healing and breakthrough. I ask for the peace and grace of God to release the power of healing in Jesus so that every sickness and disease in your body may be healed in the name of Jesus. We receive perfect healing by the stripes of Jesus, so I declare that you receive your healing today in Jesus’ name.
