Every time you reach out in prayer to touch Jesus you are doing a bold and remarkable thing. Think for a moment. Who are you to come to the throne of the Almighty, sinless God of the universe?
There is someone in scripture who did just that, knowing that if she reached out to Jesus her life would be changed forever. We know her only at the woman with the "Issue of blood."
"There was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. For she said, 'If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.' And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone out from him, immediately turned about in the crowd and said, 'Who touched my garments?' And his disciples said to him, 'You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, ‘Who touched me?’' And he looked around to see who had done it. But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him and told him the whole truth. And he said to her, 'Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease'” (Mark 525-34).
Why was the way she reached out to Jesus so remarkable? It has to do with her condition and the society she lived in.
