Jesus visibly proved his divine power through healing the paralytic.
They were four men of great faith…a circle of caring and devoted friends.
They are our circle of friends, those who believe that Jesus is the Son of Man.
They are our circle of friends, those who help us face the obstacles in our lives.
They are our circles of friends, those who support us when our souls are paralyzed.
They are you and me, when we bring the sick into the presence of Jesus through prayer.
They are you and me, when we are attentive to others physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

In my thoughts, I am thanking God for my circle of friends.
Glory To God!
