We don't know this courageous woman's name, but Jesus addressed her as "daughter," and told her that her faith had healed her. For twelve years she had suffered physically, by bleeding, emotionally by not being able to serve guests, go to someone else's home, sitting on someone else's chair, and socially, by being shunned by everyone. She had heard about Jesus's healing ministry. She was determined as she fought her way through the pressing crowd to get to Jesus. She knew in her heart if she could just touch the hem of his cloak she would be healed. The moment she did so, she felt in her body that she was completely healed. Jesus felt the power leave Him, and asked who had touched Him. The woman came forward and explained about her condition, and that she had been healed. I pray that the girls will realize that faith, determination and courage can change their lives.
