Jesus is willing to help you. Whatever you are asking for, if it will glorify Jesus, God is able and willing to give it to you.
Christians are often limited in their prayer lives because they do not understand how willing God is to meet their needs. Everyone is confident of God's ability to do anything, but not everyone is sure he is willing to do it for them today.

We need to connect God's willingness and ability together. God is willing to do anything we ask that will bring glory to Him.
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
(John 14:13)
God wants to answer your prayer so He may be glorified through Jesus. God is able and willing to answer your prayers.

One of the most precious stories to me in the Bible is the man who came to Jesus to seek cleansing from his disease of leprosy. I have ministered in two leper colonies, and I have heard the cry in those people's hearts and have seen the agony in their bodies.

Lepers often have fingers, ears and noses that have been eaten away by the disease. The leper's appearance makes them repulsive to most people and they are social outcasts. It would be repulsive for most people to consider touching a person with leprosy.

Leprosy has been around for thousands of years. In ancient Israel lepers were considered unclean and were forced to live away from most people.

Whenever a leper went out in public he had to cry out in a loud voice, "Unclean! Unclean!" Lepers were not allowed to associate with anyone except other lepers.

Only out of desperation did this leper approach Jesus. We can still hear this leper's desperate plea for help from the book of Mark.
And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, "If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean."
(Mark 1:40)
This leper had heard of the marvelous things Jesus had done for others. He heard of His miraculous abilities and how He had healed many others.

He knew Jesus was able to heal him. However, he was not sure if Jesus was willing to heal a man like him.

This leper represents all of us. We were all unclean and unworthy to approach God on our own merits.

Paul says in Romans 3:23, "All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." We all need a Savior to cleanse us from our sins and to make us clean. We know Jesus can cleanse our hearts, but He is willing to help us with other needs in our lives?

Let us look at how Jesus responded to this man's plea for help.
And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, "I will; be thou clean."
(Mark 1:41)
Jesus reached out and touched this man and said, "I will, be thou clean." Jesus demonstrated he was not only able but also willing to heal him.

He reached out in love and touched this man whom no one else was willing to touch. Jesus touched him and answered his prayer. Jesus cleansed him from his leprosy.

Jesus is willing to help you. Whatever you are asking for, if it will glorify Jesus, God is able and willing to give it to you.

God is willing to help you with whatever you ask. It does not have to be physical healing. It can be emotional healing. It can be love. It can be anything you need.
