If…

They […] brought to Him all who were sick, and begged Him that they might only touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched it were made perfectly well (Matthew 14:35-6; NKJV).

No matter what their diseases were, the touch of his hand healed every one (Luke 4:40; NLT).

He will carry the lambs in his arms, holding them close to his heart (Isaiah 40:11; NLT).

There will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain (Revelation 21:4; NLT).

Lord God,

If I could only touch
Your hem,
Or hand,
Or heart;

Then I’d be whole
Eternally,
With no more fear,
Or hurt.

Have mercy

Have mercy 

Hear my prayer, O Lord! Listen to my cries for help! (Psalm 39:12; NLT).

Each day I beg for your help, O LORD; I lift my hands to you for mercy (Psalm 88:9; NLT).

God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us (Acts 17:27; NIV).

She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed” (Matthew 9:21; NIV).
Lord,
Have mercy on me!
Hear my prayer,
And listen to my cry for help!

I seek you day and night,
Lifting up my hands to you,
Reaching out
To touch the hem of your robe,
Begging for your healing
And forgiveness.

Lord,
Have mercy on me!
Hear my prayer,
And listen to my cry for help!

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
