Need for Prayer

Jesus walked down

from the mountain

& a crowd had gathered

waiting for his return—

here a man pleaded

for healing of his epileptic son

(the disciples who had stayed

could not heal him)

Jesus thought them all faithless

& called the demon out of the boy

who convulsed violently

& was finally rid of that spirit

 

 

The disciples questioned Jesus

why they had failed

& Jesus told them

that prayer was required

Need for Prayer
